Set alarm remotely

We have the keyfob which allows us to set the alarm (AWAY) and turn it off, but distance from the base station is limited.  Is there a way to turn the alarm on and off using the app from anywhere further away from the base station?

Hi @twohassez ,

Yes, the SimpliSafe app (available from your phone's App Store) enables online command from anywhere in the world, using the Base Station's WiFi or built-in cellular connection. You just need to activate your system to connect it to the service.

If you haven't activated already, the first page you see after logging in should prompt you to get started.
