Get the Devicebook App

If you haven't already, get the Devicebook App for Android or iOS.

Smart Home Design & Set Up

Your Devicebook Smart Home will be designed, installed, and tested by a contractor you choose. If you are not yet working with a Devicebook Smart Home Contractor, you can find one here.

When the contractor is done installing and testing your smart home, it'll be time for you to create your Devicebook Account and take control of it.

Account Creation

When your smart home contractor transfers your new Devicebook Smart Home to you, you'll receive an email with a link to sign up for Devicebook. Tap that link in your email to choose a password for your Devicebook Account.

Take Control of your Smart Home

After you create your account using the link in your email from your contractor, you'll be prompted to take over your new Devicebook Smart Home. Accept the request, and you'll be in control.

Know Your Smart Home

Home Status


The Home Status Widget lets you see and control the current occupancy status of your home.

You can also notify your hand-picked responders that you need emergency assistance for any reason with the emergency SOS Button. 

Learn about emergency responders here: About Responders

Changing Home Status

When you change your home status, Routines (smart home automations) may be triggered.

House Check

Share Your Smart Home with your Household

Your Smart Home is controlled only by the account that was used to sign up for Devicebook. Share the credentials for that account with other members of your household.
