I currently have a requirement to install a burglar alarm in my house and I’d like to build something a bit smarter than the ring-fenced offerings from Yale or Swann for example.
My research to date tells me that SmartThings would provide all I need in terms of compatible sensors and cameras, but in the UK there isn’t a smart external alarm box/siren. This is a vital part of the setup as I’m focussing on visual deterrent first and foremost.
How feasible would it be to adapt a standard alarm box like this one, with the Z-Wave plug in module?
If it’s possible, how reliable would it be? What other considerations are there? I’m being vague as I don’t currently own a SmartThings hub.
