How to Create an Arming Reminder Notification

Arming reminders are a handy notification that helps prevent you from leaving the house without arming your security system. Based on your schedule or location, arming reminders notify you if you forget to arm your system and helps you secure your home remotely with one tap on your mobile device. 

You can choose how often you receive them and set them up to work with devices like your smartphone or Apple Watch.
