• Who is in?

    Who is in is a feature provided by Securifi. This feature works by identifying the MAC address of the user's device. Usually we will tag the mobile phone as the mobile phone is inseparable from the individual :)
     
    Home-A-Genius will recognize the device's name and its corresponding MAC address. Since Almond3/Almond+ will be used as the main router for the home, devices connected to it will be identified and tracked. Simply put, user's device connected to network, will represent the individual as back home.

    The process is relatively simple:

     

    • Select the + sign to add a person 
    • Enter the First and Last name, Relationship, mobile number of the user.
    • Select the user’s device to be tagged. 
    • Select if home should be notified if user is home. 
    • Select Save
    Member's settings will be saved in the device you can now track if the family member has returned home /left the house through the wifi connection.
  • Backup & Restore
