abode is the single platform for on-demand home security and a truly connected and protected smart home
abode’s smart home platform is a no contract, professional-grade home security system that controls all of your connected devices through a single application.
The company’s products delight consumers by providing low-cost security systems they can install themselves that integrate all of their connected devices: TVs, stereos, doorbells, lights, thermostats, locks, garage doors, etc., all through a single app. In addition, smart homes sell for higher prices, command higher rents, spend less time on market, and can reduce property losses.
