I’ve been an Abode user for 3 years. It leaves a lot to be desired and I was thrilled to be able to combine the cameras I love (and door lock) with home monitoring.
Unfortunately I find myself incredibly frustrated with the experience.
I subscribed to Cam Plus for the three cameras I actually care about connecting to home monitoring. All of the are inside my house and there seems to be no way to disable alerts.
With cam plus and my motion sensor I get a literal never ending feed of alerts when I’m home, every maybe 60-90 seconds someone in my house is setting off something. In some ways I actually understand cam plus just being on constantly. But why is my motion sensor notifying me when the system is disarmed?
Is there no way to tell the hub to shut off all alerts when the alarm is disarmed?
While I’m at it, a few more questions:
Am I allowed only 1 contact and 1 keypad pin? Abode supports 3 contacts (in case someone doesn’t pickup) and an infinite number of alarm pins (for guests, visitors, house sitters, etc.)
Feels like Cam plus is completely wasted on cameras inside my house. Can someone talk me off this ledge?
