How to enable friend alerts

Eva friend alerts

Friend alerts is an SMS service that alerts up to five contact persons when an incident occurs. The service ensures that in addition to yourself, others are contacted if the burglar alarm, smoke detector, or water sensor is triggered. You can decide the type of notification your contact persons should receive and whether you want a delay before sending the SMS. This means that you can avoid sending SMS if you reset the alarm within a specified time that you have set. 

Note! The service is included in Eva Alarm, and you don't pay anything extra per SMS.
