Setting Scenes with Smart Home Automation

Having smart home devices makes life easier by giving you control of your lights, locks, garage doors, and more. But what if there was a way to make home automation even more streamlined?  With the Scenes feature from Alarm.com, you can control all your smart home automation devices with the tap of just one button. This feature allows you to have a button dedicated to a scenario in which your smart devices are adjusted accordingly.

Readymade Scenes

To secure your house when you leave, tap the Away Scene. Your alarm system will arm itself, your front door will lock, your garage will close, and your thermostat will adjust to help with energy savings.

Ready for bed? Tap the Sleep Scene. Your alarm system will arm itself to Arm: Stay, smart lights turn off, your smart lock will lock, your thermostat will adjust to a temperature that you set for a comfortable night’s sleep.

In addition to the Away and Sleep Scenes, the Alarm.com app also has Home and Wake-Up as readymade Scenes.

Custom Scenes

Want to set a different Scene? You can easily create your custom scene with commands for your security system, smart locks, garage door, smart lights, and smart thermostats.

First, pick a title for your scene i.e., Movie Night or Dinnertime, then select the smart home devices and select their actions. Then just add the button to your Scenes menu where it will appear at the top of your Alarm.com app, ready to use.
