Let’s share how pissed off I am at ST!
I just moved to a new development last week, I’ve been eagerly awaiting Abode and it just arrived today… I got ST early so it was going to be a secondary and confirmatory Security system + home automation…
Today was like any other day except a large T-Storm came, I received a front door intrusion alert but no motion detection. Oh man, I just spent 500$ and its sitting on my passenger seat awaiting to be installed, could I of been robbed THAT FAST?
Being 10 miles away and a full time job all I could confirm is that sensor tripped. I had no eyes, all the sudden my internet went out, which sits behind my 58 inch TV.
Holy, someone’s in my Apartment…?
I couldn’t confirm, so I didn’t call the police but I left work early, sped back home, arrived at the front door. It’s locked, Was someone from the Apt Staff in my apartment?
Entered, everything is there, thank God. So what the hell happened?
I must of turned off my light switch on the way out the door, this is hooked up to my internet (Will fix this) , This engaged my backup battery and ran all the way from 8am to 3pm. And the detection happened at one, internet went out at 3pm. Why did it trip?
I went to the Apt admin and they pulled the key reports, no one from them had been in my apartment, I changed some things, Needing to be called before anyone enters ect.
That night I went to class and got yet ANOTHER intrusion alert. This time I had Abode’s Streaming camera facing the door, stayed closed, no intrusion. Backup battery recovered (Cyberpower)
Battery on 66% on the front door and Patio door is 77% Both ST Multi sensors, Patio door has never false tripped.
I will never trust ST again from a security perspective, I do like that when I exit the fence it turns off my TV, and music but it WILL be a secondary system.
I’m FED UP the first time. I’m in a super safe area, lived through a home invasion with a man wielding a claw hammer.
Anyone have any input? 66% shouldn’t trip a sensor? Thunderstorms mess with Z-Wave?
