How to use Custom Device Notifications

Custom device notifications can be a powerful way to monitor what’s going on in your home. You can set an alert for when your sump pump has been on for too long, or design a safeguard alert to ensure that your oven hasn’t been left on when you’re out of the house, and much more.

To set a custom notification:

  1. Using the mobile app, navigate to a device’s Settings screen by selecting it from your Devices list and tapping on the gear icon in the top right corner of that device.

  2. Within the Manage tab, tap " Add custom alert " and select the state of the device (ON/OFF) and the amount of time in that state (minutes, hours, days) that you wanted to be alerted of.

  3. Tap " Save " in the top right corner to let the notification magic begin.
