In our most recent update, security alerts have been merged into Pings (Lighthouse's custom notifications).
You'll still get the same level of security with Pings, but the app looks a little different, so please take a look at this guide to the update:
The same: You'll get notified if the camera sees any person-related activity while you (and any people you’ve invited to your account) are away.
The same: you'll get a push notification on your phone when the Ping is triggered.
New: When you open a notification you'll see a video, with the cause outlined in blue, not red. We've also removed the action buttons from the alert, but you can always sound the siren from the Home tab.
New: Pings for security won't block the Home tab when they're triggered. To see if you've missed any notifications, just visit the Events tab to see what's been triggered.
New: Instead of "Security Alerts On" to confirm when you'll be notified, just scroll down on the Home tab to the Pings section and make sure your Ping(s) for security are on.
New: There are two new ways to turn notifications off manually.
- Turn off indefinitely: under Pings on the Home tab, tap on the slider next to the Ping you want to silence--just remember to turn it on again later!
- Turn off temporarily: tap Manage Pings on the Home tab, find the Ping(s) you want to snooze, then tap Notifications and choose how long to mute it.
New: The preset Ping for person-related activity can't be "turned on" when you (or other users) are home, but you can set other Pings if you want to customize your security. Just tap Manage Pings on the Home tab, then tap the icon in the upper right to add a new one:
- "Tell me if you see anyone between 10pm and 6am"
- "Ping me if you see anyone on Monday afternoon"
- "Alert me if you see person-related activity in the next hour"
New: to see your active Pings (including the preset Ping for security) and turn them on or off, check out the Ping section. To create a new one or snooze a Ping temporarily, just tap Manage Pings.
New: a security notification will no longer take over the Home tab when it's triggered; instead, you can review past notifications on the Events tab.
New: to manually turn Privacy Mode on/off, you can just tap the camera icon
New: Instead of red security alert notifications in your Events tab, you'll have a yellow Ping notification listing what caused the Ping.
