What does the Link Essential self-protection setting do?


The purpose of this setting is to alert you when your Link Essential is moved.

If a thief attempts to disable your monitoring system by damaging the Link Essential, they will unknowingly set off a self-protection alert. This lets you know that someone has entered your home.

The alert will vary depending on the activation status of your Somfy Home Alarm Essential:

  • System activated

The siren starts immediately and continues for 3 minutes. On the app, the alert message appears in red on the home page.

The owner receives an email, a text message, and a push notification. The community receives an email and a push notification.

The event is listed in the activity record.

  • System deactivated or in night mode

The siren "dings" once, and the event is listed in the activity record.
