Ratings and Reviews
I initially wrote a negative review for the current version of this app because it was always offline and I was unable to arm/disarm my system from the app.
However, I changed the placement of my door sensors and now they properly line up and communicate with each other, the panel, and the app. I had no idea that the sensors were acting as if the door was tampered, which explains why the panel status always said "System tampered".
So my advice to anyone having the same issue as me, check to make sure your sensors are properly placed. With my front door the moulding on the frame made it difficult to find a position for the sensors to work. But now it works great and I can finally use my app.

We're glad you were able to fix this! By far the most common errors we see with the application are actually errors with other equipment, with the app reporting them. I'm glad you were able to resolve these. Please don't hesitate to reach out to our service line if you experience any other issues like this - we'll be happy to get your system working 100%!
App used to work
This app has become useless as far as setting my alarm. I’ve been a customer for a almost 5 years and for the last two months or so this app has just been taking up space on my phone as it doesn’t communicate with the system.
It’s since been rectified with a service update and now it works flawlessly. We should not have to call in for the update as paying customers it should be automatic or we should be called,emailed or messaged through the app. This is home security not candy crush.
Developer Response ,
I'm terribly sorry your experience with our app hasn't met expectations. We would love to troubleshoot if you'll give us the opportunity. Please give our Customer Care team a call at 800-951-5111, or Chat in from our website and we'll have a Team Member standing by to assist. If you prefer, we can investigate unilaterally if you'd be so kind to provide your first/last name, or your system address/phone number.
Good system and app could use some work
First, the app seems good and there are at times the system does not connect to the app. Says offline. In addition it would be great if the zones said what door is open rather then sensor 1,2,3 the system is able to announce to the room which door is being opened but this app can’t. Should be able to say what door is open. In addition you should work with myq chamberlain garage doors. They are widely used and would be great to just need one app rather then two apps. You have the option to connect a garage door but only through z wave which requires more equipment purchases.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
