So everyone knows IRIS is dead at the end of next month. And i am trying to find a a replacement. I have 18 contact sensors currently in use and lots of home automation. I hear everyone talking about ADT SmartThings, but it requires all new sensors to be compatible. And when looking up the price on them, I see many stores have put the whole ADT SmartThings items on clearance. (Example BestBuy) So is ADT side going away and nobody knows yet? Would be pissed to invest in that have have it go belly up.
So if ADT side is here to stay, can I use everything from my Iris system (Minus the contacts and keypads) with the ADT version? (Smoke detectors, Glass break sensors, water leak, water shutoff, schlage smart locks, ect…) and have events set up like: If between sundown to sunup and front door is unlocked by user x or user y then turn on kitchen lights and turn alarm off.
Can I set all contacts to be away , and some that are not active during the stay? We have dogs that get let out in the middle of the night and do not want to disarm and rearm every time. So my back door I would like to exclude from the arming except when were away.
Also with the ADT version is it still 100% cloud based, in that if the cloud goes dark and cant connect that I am unable to disarm the alarm. Is nothing handled locally?
Any Iris users make the full move yet.
As much as people complained about Iris, the still seem to be the only provider that integrated everything. Sure wish SmartThings (Samsung) would have purchased iris and merged the two together. That would have been the best of both worlds.
Not sure where to go from here. Not going to pay $30+ a month plus the added cost of all the additional sensors i would need and still not have it all integrated together.
Very frustrated, and feel like I am scrambling to find a solution and there is nothing.
Thanks for reading and hope to find a solution.
