I’m currently an ADT customer, but I just have the basic service with them. I see stuff about their Pulse system all the time, but I’m also getting into home automation. I have 2 Nest Protects, a Nest Thermostat, and a Nest Cam monitoring my front door currently, but I just pre-ordered the v2 ST hub.
The only thing I haven’t tackled much is home security (outside of the Nest Cam). I’ve looked at all the different options like Scout, Piper, Canary, Simplisafe, Frontpoint, etc and I’m at an impasse. I don’t mind rolling my own security with sensors and sirens, which I can do with ST, but the one component that I need is the notifying of the local police/fire departments when something happens. I get that with ADT right now, and while I live in a safe neighborhood, I want the piece of mind.
SO…is there any kind of hybrid solution I can implement that gives both the DIY and police notification side consideration?
