The security functionality of Link notifies you when a door or window is being opened when the system is active. Whether the system is active depends on the current home state:


  •  Someone Home - Security system inactive
  • Everyone absent - Security system active
  • Night state - Security system active
  •  Holiday state - Security system active


There are three different elements of the security system that you can configure:

  • Security sensors : The door/window sensor that you want to be part of the security system.
  • Alarm delay : The time it takes after a door or window is opened to activate the alarm. 
  • Alarm lights - What devices in your home should be used to notify when a door or window is opened.


Each individual element is explained in more detail below.


Notifications

When a door is opened and the security system is active you will receive a notification that the entry delay starts and your alarm lights will blink orange. When the alarm is triggered you will receive a notification on your smartphone and your alarm devices will blink red.


You will always receive notifications if you have turned on notifications for the HomeWizard Link app. 

If you want to know how to configure notifications see Notifications.
