Adding users lets you stay aware of when they come and go, even if they’re not in front of the camera.
It also ensures your Lighthouse system will disarm when the user arrives, so you won’t receive false alarms from trusted friends and family. Learn more about arming and disarming.
How to invite users
Make sure the person you want to invite is in your phone's contacts, then follow these steps:
- In the app, open the People tab.
- Tap the icon in the upper right corner.
- Select who you’d like to add and choose to send the invitation via SMS or email.
- Finally, choose their access level (details below) and tap Send Invite.
The invitation needs to be accepted on a mobile device; here's what the user can expect.
When you add users, you’ll be able to choose from the levels of account access listed below. No matter what level you choose, new users will only have access to video recorded after they were added to the account.
Owner: Full access to video, app, account and device settings.
Member: Access to the video and app, but can't change settings or invite new users.
Guest: See when they come and go, but they have no access to video footage or settings.
Managing user accounts is easy. Account Owners can simply open the People tab, tap on the users access level and change it or remove access to the account altogether.
