Abode is one of the first do-it-yourself (DIY) smart home security systems GearBrain tested years ago and we have followed its growth through the years. Their smart home security system provides professional monitoring for users. It has a robust ecosystem of compatible smart devices users can add to their system to make their homes smarter and more efficient. Today, the company is adding new smart devices to this ecosystem that work on the Android platform. If you have an Android smartwatch or Google TV device, you will be able to control and monitor your Abode system on the device or through the screen of your smart TV. Here is how it works.

How does Abode Android Watch App Work?

The Abode Home Security App can now be used on Android smartwatches to allow users to interact with their devices and control their home security system. With just a few taps on Android watches, Abode users can view event timelines, arm, and disarm the system, check out camera views, and run automation without pulling out a phone or other mobile device.

The different screens on the Android watch app bring powerful Abode functionality to users’ wrists and give them a clear, intuitive way to perform powerful tasks on the go, whether at home or away. It also gives other members of the household, older children, long-term guests, or caregivers an easy way to interact with the system with a simple, straightforward interface.

The Abode Watch app is now available on the Google Play store; the Abode Watch app is also available in an iOS version for the Apple Watch with the same functionality.

In addition to the Android Watch app, Abode recently released a limited version of the Abode app for devices running Google TV / Android TV. The Abode app for Google TV allows users to check on their home security cameras' status and view the streaming video feed.

This added functionality gives Abode customers the ability to keep an eye on their home from any room with a Google TV-enabled display without needing an additional local control product like the Keypad or their phone or other mobile devices.

The Abode Google TV app is now available on the Google Play app store. For more information on the Abode app and Abode updates and news, visit the company's website.

The move to expand the control and monitoring on Android devices like Google TV (Android TV) and Pixel watches is smart. Consumers want unified control and ease of use. Having the ability to control and monitoring on the new Abode Watch app makes sense, especially for Android users. And if you are an iOS user, don't worry. The Abode Watch app also works on Apple Watches. If you are an Abode user and own an Android Smartwatch, Google TV or Pixel, we recommend you try to these integrations with your Abode system. They will bring an additional level of control and monitoring which can make your home more secure.
