Easy visual display for SHM?


(Greg) #1

I’m wondering if there’s a cheap or easy (or both) way to visually display Smart Home Monitor status. I’m thinking something very simple like a pair of green and red LEDs that would live by the door. Green means off red means armed. Doesn’t have to be this necessarily but something simple and unobtrusive.

The keypad from Lowes has an arm indicator on it and can be integrated with ST:

Thanks @ritchierich. Is that this one?

Has terrible reviews but worth a flyer for $10.

Yes, that is the Centralite keypad that works with ST. Not sure what the terrible reviews are about. I have 2 ( although redundant since I also have Schlage locks to disarm,so don’t actually use them much).
I know a lot of people in here complain because they think that it can be repurposed as a button controller and it doesn’t work that way.
I will admit when I originally bought them, that was my intention too. I just accepted that was not how they worked and rolled with it.

Thanks gang. Happened to be near a lowes this morning and picked it up for $10. Will give this one a shot.
