Creating Your Own Home Control Scenes

The convenient Scenes buttons in the Alarm.com app let you control several smart home devices at once with the touch of a single button.

We’ve provided four Scenes to start with, each one tailored to make a specific moment of your day easier. They’re easy to edit and you can also create new Scenes from scratch for any situation. Here’s how.

1: Getting Started

You can create Scenes in both the desktop and mobile versions of your Alarm.com app. We’re going to use the desktop version. Log into your account, click the emPower tab, then click Scenes.

2: Create a button for your Scene. 

Let’s create a ‘Movie’ Scene so you can get ready for movie time with one touch once the kids are in bed. Enter your Scene name and click the three-arrow icon. You’ll see a drop-down menu of icons to choose from, along with a choice of colors.

3: Specify what your Scene will control.

After creating your button, you’ll see a list of all your system devices below. 

For example, you may want this Scene to set the security system to Arm Stay, with the front door locked.

To include a device, check the circle to the left of it, then specify what you want the device to do.

If you like to stay cozy under a blanked, let’s turn the temperature down for this Scene too.

Movies require a blanket, so we're turning the temperature down for this Scene.

Of course the lights have to go off for the movie. 

Finally, we're going to have the hallway and living room lights turn off, for perfect movie ambiance.

4: Use your new Scene!

Congratulations, you’ve created your first custom Scene! The next time you log into your security system app, you’ll be able to use it. Swipe left on the Scenes bar to find the new button, and tap once. On the confirmation pop-up, you can see all of the commands you specified. Tap ‘Confirm’ and you’re done!

One Button Home Control

We’ve all wished for that one ‘magic’ button that took care of things around the house to save time. Well, that button is here.

Our highly rated free app gives you the ability to control your security and integrated smart home features from anywhere. If you don’t have access to your home or security system through our app, our Customer Loyalty Rewards may allow you to upgrade your system free.

What do Scenes do for me?

With our app, you have access to ‘Scenes‘. Scenes are actions you frequently take with your home grouped together so your home can respond with the touch of a button to your every command. Here are some examples…

  • Leaving the house? Tap the new ‘Away’ Scene and your security system can arm, your front door can lock, your garage can close and your thermostat can set back to save energy.
  • Ready for bed? Tap ‘Sleep’ Scene to have your thermostat dial down or switch to the bedroom temperature sensor for perfect comfort, lights can turn off, while your house secures itself for the night.
  • Home, Away, Sleep and Wake Up. Each scene is configured for a moment in the day where you need to adjust several things at once: arriving home, leaving the house, going to bed and getting up in the morning.

All four scenes are easy to tweak as you like. You can add a porch light to your Home scene or set your downstairs lights to turn off automatically when you tap the Sleep button.

Create Your Own Custom Scene

Want a button for one of your other frequent patterns? It’s easy to build your own scenes with commands for your security system, locks, garage door, smart lights, smart thermostats and even your smart water valve.

Just pick a name for your new scene—Dinner, Movie Night, or Kids Bedtime and more. Log into your account and select the devices and what you want them to do. Then, it will appear at the top of your app, ready to use. If you need help creating your new Scene, click here
