Lighthouse is an intelligent in-home camera that lets owners stay connected to what's going on at home, including sending them security alerts when it sees people while they're absent.
What does being a guest mean?
Guest access to a Lighthouse account means the owner's camera will recognize you as a trusted guest, and turn security alerts off when you arrive. Security alerts will turn back on automatically when you leave.
Why does the app need access to my phone's location?
Your phone's location data is used to tell that you've arrived or left, so for the system to work correctly you'll need to allow the app access to location services and stay logged in.
What happens if a security alert goes off?
The owner of the Lighthouse account will get a security alert showing footage of the person who set it off. They can call 9-1-1, sound a siren, or dismiss the alert if it's someone they know.
To avoid this happening, make sure Lighthouse has access to your phone's location data and stay logged into the Lighthouse app.
Does this mean my location is always tracked?
No, we only use your location to notify the system or your arrival and departure so security alerts turn on and off appropriately.
Does this mean I'm being recorded?
If you have questions about how the account owner is using Lighthouse, we recommend getting in touch with them.
There are different options for when to record and when not to, but those are set by the camera owner. No one at Lighthouse reviews audio or video from a camera unless the owner explicitly gives us permission.
