Enable Smart Arming

Notice: The product or feature described on this page has not yet been released so information is subject to change. 

For residential customers, the Smart Arming feature automatically arms the customer's system Arm Stay when they go to bed and Disarm it when they wake up. Smart Arming can be activated at a set time or when sensors detect activity. Smart Arming ensures that the system is secure every night while preventing false alarms. 

Use-Case Example: A family with a regular nighttime routine schedules Smart Arming to arm the panel at 10:00 PM each night. Because they have small children who may wake early and let the dog out, they auto-disarm when activity is detected between 6:00 AM and 9:00 AM.

System considerations

  • Smart Arming will not activate if a system is in Arm Away
  • Smart Arming is only available for security systems with one partition
  • Sensor-based Arm Stay uses contact and motion sensors to detect activity; users select which sensors to include
  • Sensor-based Disarm uses motion sensors only so someone breaking can not disarm the panel; users select which sensors to include

Note: Motion sensors with PIR cameras cannot be selected with Sensor-based Arm Stay or Sensor-based Disarm.
