OK so I have my ADT Smartthings hub deployed I have the ADT smart things motion sensor the Iris motion sensor the Iris smart plug and so far about 14 of the ADT Smartthings door and window sensors deployed.
I have no problem implementing the ring spot light cameras nor the ring video doorbell to. I am having all kinds of problems with the ring floodlight camera. Simply put the 1st one that they shipped wouldn’t power on at all there was some sort of weird damage to the wiring. So I took it back and the replacement well it won’t respond to the command to turn the floodlight off.
I am hoping 3rd time is the charm since I’m getting really sick of pulling the floodlight on and off of the side of the house.
I have about 3 of the door and window sensors left to deploy before the envelope of the house is closed back up.
I have been given some good information here and am going to start picking up and deploying the ceiling fan and light controls soon. I will start with one and see if I can get it to work as I expect. If I can there are 6 throughout the house and that need to be done.
I am noticing some distinct differences between this system and Iris. Most notably how rapidly new devices can pair to smart things. Compared to Iris pairing a door and window sensor for example his almost instantaneous.
Now on to the questions!
My 2 ADT smart things door and window sensors the ones that came with the monitoring kit are not being seen as monitorable by ADT. Why is that?
Is there any way that I can take the text alerts from smart things on my self monitoring and send it as an actual phone call instead of a text?
And the big one the purpose behind getting the ADT panel instead of the regular smart things 1 how do I set up individual pin numbers for people accessing my house legitimately without adding a smart lock?
