Many of us have an old wired security alarm in their homes. Sad little beige boxes under the stairs that actually offer a world of potential for useful home automation.
The connected alarm panel is a new option for precisely this task. The clever hardware offers home automation enthusiasts the opportunity to use these sensors for an intelligent life. Installation is easy for users with different DIY skills.
By reusing the sensors that are already in the house (door / window contacts, movement, broken glass, water / leak, freezing, IR beam), you can use them in the logic for intelligent lights and thermostats etc. Wired sensors never need batteries or charging.
After installation, you can automatically activate and deactivate your system with your smartphone so that you no longer have to use the codes required for conventional alarms for home security.
The system is available in 6, 12, 18 and 24 zone kits.
If you retrofit the connected card (to almost any wired alarm system), it can be integrated into smart home systems such as SmartThings, openHab, Home Assistant, Hubitat, Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, MQQTT, Mozilla IoT and others .
Works seamlessly with popular home automation platforms and connects to thousands of smart home devices. Now works with SmartThings without additional hardware! A SmartThings hub is no longer required.
