New here, been reading for days and have everything pretty much planned out but have a question on using ST as a self monitored security system. I’ll be converting my hardwired zones over to ST by way of Konnected.Io but my primary concern is a visual/quick glance of the armed/disarmed status.
Right now I have a 2GIG GC3, however, I am tired of paying ~$20 per month for Alarm.Com to “see” my system remotely. What I do like however, if when the system is ARMED the GC3 has a red ring around the button to provide visual notification the security system is ON and a green ring around the button when OFF.
My family needs this visual notification to “remember” to disarm the system in the morning or arm the system at bed time. I also like it when I get up at night for something, quick look, see the red light on knowing who ever went to bed last ARMED the system.
Even if I wall mount a tablet for ST control of everything I am still trying to determine how I can get this “at a glance” feature knowing if the system is ON of OFF. Any recommendations on how I can accomplish this? I would like this feature on every floor of the house (i.e. main entry where 1 GC3 panel is now, master bedroom where a secondary GC3 is now).
Thanks in advance for any suggestions/show and tell how this can work.
