I started out with wanting to install a wireless security system in my house, however, after much DD I’ve decided that using SmartThings as the brains for a security system is the way to go given all the cool things you can do with it. As part of the system, I would like to have a wall mounted control panel (much like a conventional security system). I read in another blog where someone used an android tablet (which wakes up on detected motion using the front camera) to accomplish this. How cool is that?? anyway, I was wondering, as an alternative could I use a 2gig control panel in lieu of setting up an old tablet? Does anyone have any insight on how to do this if it is possible?
I would also like to know if SmartThings can connect with a standard wireless door/window sensor.
