While you can invite other users to share access to your home’s Abode security system during the initial setup process, here’s how to access this screen if you ever want to invite someone else.

This can be done in two ways: either in the Abode mobile app on your smartphone, or through the web interface of your computer’s web browser.
On the Abode mobile app
Open the Abode app on your phone and tap the Settings tab at the bottom right corner of the screen.
Select User Management from the list.
Click «Invite by Email».
Click where it says «Email address» and enter the person’s email address.
Once entered, click «Send Invitation» at the bottom.
After sending the invitation, this person will appear in the list of users on the previous page (to which you will automatically return).
The user then clicks on the link in the email they receive and creates their Abode account, after which they are automatically added to your Abode system.
From the web interface
To add users from the web interface, visit my.goadobe.com and sign in with your Abode credentials.
After logging in, click «Account» in the sidebar on the left.
From there, find the «Users» section and click «Add New User» on the right side of the screen.
A pop-up window will appear in which you will enter the person’s name, email address, and phone number. Yes, oddly enough, you have to enter their phone number in the web interface, but not from the mobile app.
You can also upload a profile photo for this user. When you’re done, click Save.
The user will now appear in the user list where you can edit or delete this user at any time.
