I’m new to this and am asking if a SmartThings system would work in my situation for my current hardware and needs?
Just bought a house with a disconnected ADT wireless system. It has 17 Honeywell 5816 window sensors and a few motion detectors. There is a CO detector which I suspect was connected, but the CO panel shows scrambled for now. There are no cameras and no siren that I know of. Don’t know how old the system is, but the control panel looks like this.
I don’t want a monitored home security system. I just would like to know if all the doors and windows are closed when we go to bed. Also I’m home all day and will be at one end of the house. If my wife comes home through the garage or utility room, there’s no way I would hear her, so it would be nice to know about that. Would also be nice to add a camera at the front door (Ring???) and driveway.
Is SmartThings a candidate for reusing the Honeywell sensors and adding cameras?
