Controlling when your home is armed or dis-armed gives you the ability to control when you receive certain types of notifications from your smart devices connected to your Hedge app. 

Any user with the Hedge app has the ability to arm and dis-arm the home (either manually by the user or automatically by using our auto-arming feature). 

Notifications you will receive whether your home is armed or dis-armed: 

  • Water leak notifications, as detected by any connected water sensor or detector

  • Smoke notifications, as detected by your SmartCam

  • Carbon monoxide notifications, as detected by your SmartCam

Notifications you only receive when your home is armed: 

  • Motion, as detected by your SmartCam

  • Noise, as detected by your SmartCam

  • Garage door opening or closing, as detected by your garage door sensor

  • Contact sensor opening or closing

  • Motion, as detected by your Motion Sensor


You will still be able to access live feed from your SmartCams at anytime and regardless of whether your home is armed or dis-armed. However, automatic video clip recordings will not occur while your home is dis-armed. To store continuous footage, see this article:
