Why did we create CUE?

We created CUE to make home automation easy and approachable while also allowing for deep, advanced automation creation. Using CUE, you can create automations and quick actions that allow your home and home security to work for you.
  • Trigger actions based on your phone's location as you come & go so you don't have to worry if you set the alarm and locked up
  • Ready to work with all of your connected devices from door locks to thermostats

CUE works on your mobile phone or computer.

CUE is included with every abode system and includes these features:

  • Guided setup process on the abode mobile or web app
  • Sunrise & sunset triggers and conditions based on your system's location
  • Set multiple triggers for one automation for deeper control
  • Define conditions when you want something to run like only when you are home
  • Set up multiple locations that can be used as part of your automations
  • Ability to fine tune triggers and actions (i.e. only run if a door is open longer than...)
  • Blackout periods to prevent automations from running at inconvenient times
  • Set it and let your home work for you

Conditional Automations

Conditional automations let you add an additional requirement for automations to run. This means you can fine-tune your automations to run under the exact conditions you want.

    Step 1

    WHEN: this event occurs (Trigger)

    A trigger is an event that causes an automation to run. Example triggers include motion detected, a door or window opening, a phone entering a geofence, or a specific time.

    Step 2

    THEN: perform this action

    An action is an event you would like to perform when the trigger occurs. An action can be an event like taking a photo, recording a video, turning on a light, sending a notification, or arming your system.

    Step 3

    ONLY IF: this condition is true

    A condition is an optional setting that ensures that your automation only runs during the times you want. For example, you may want to turn on the hallway lights when the front door is open if it is dark outside. Or turn a lamp on after sunset only if someone is home.

Sunrise & Sunset Support

We've designed dynamic sunrise and sunset support based on the latitude and longitude of your system's address. That means throughout the year as sunrise and sunset change, your gateway intelligently adjusts these times every day.

  • Your abode gateway updates sunrise and sunset times so it works correctly every day
  • Automatically updates for daylight savings time changes
