Texecom Connect Recipes Explained

Texecom Connect is the app that turns your Texecom Premier alarm into a smart home alarm system.  One of the key and unique parts of the Texecom Connect app is the ‘recipes’ that it allows you to create.

A recipe is a set of rules based around ’cause and effect’, which allows you to connect devices in a smart way – usually along the lines of ‘IF X THEN Y’.  For example, ‘IF the front door opens THEN turn on hall light’.

The sophistication of the Texecom Premier alarm equipment and the smartness of the Connect app means that ‘recipes’ gives you endless possibilities to make your home both smart and secure.
