Is Abode right for you?

If you want to protect your home and take all the advantages of smart-alecky home automation, Abode offers the most compatibility of any security system we’ve realize. And it’s the only one that works with Apple HomeKit as well as Google Nest and Amazon Echo devices.

Abode Smart Security is well-suited to life in a studio apartment and suburban home alike. Both the Gateway and Iota systems are small, smart, and affordable.

Equipment bundles and starter kits come with a smart hub, at least one contact sensor, and a key fob. But the more advanced Iota system has fewer ingredients than its equivalent because it mansions a camera, motion detector, and siren in one smart-alecky hub.

The biggest thing missing from the Abode security lineup is an outdoor camera or smart doorbell. But for apartment life, Abode is a great fit.
