Home Monitoring Support


What are the different armed states?

If you have a professionally monitored system with arming and disarming modes, your options are:

  • Armed Away: All Entry/Exit sensors will trigger an entry delay. Perimeter and Motion sensors will trigger an alarm instantly.
  • Armed Stay: Entry/Exit sensors will trigger an entry delay. Perimeter sensors will trigger an alarm instantly; motion is disabled.
  • Armed Night: All Entry/Exit sensors will trigger an alarm immediately. Perimeter sensors will trigger an alarm instantly; motion is disabled.

Midco SmartHOME self-monitored customers can select one of the four modes for your system:

  • Home: People are home. This is the default status until you change it.
  • Away: Your home is not occupied.
  • Night: Your home is occupied and everyone has gone to bed.
  • Vacation: Your home will be unoccupied for an extended amount of time.
