Is it possible to use both Classic & new app?

What would the use case be for using both? What am I missing that SHM has in the new app not present in classic? Just curious.

Just saying it is a choice everyone gets to make for themselves but that they can use both if they choose. Your point said they could only use one

That’s not what I said. I said you would “generally” decide to use one or the other, not both.

But you can use both

Ok, You win!

In the Classic App there are a few differences I noticed. One you can arm/disarm with certain Automation, like Locks or Arrival sensors. Two, the APP boots up faster for quicker response. And, the Classic App allows for Text messaging.
However, the other day some of that didn’t work right for me and we activated an intrusion alert. I think I know what caused it but I decided to go back to the new App 100%.
