Is Scout Alarm integration worth it?


(Daniel B) #1

Any users out there who opted for the Scout Alarm service integration? If so, what do you think of the quality of the service provided and is it worth $20 a month?

I know it has its drawbacks, such as intruder-only monitoring and no exit delay… But I’m mostly interested in how reliable you find it to be. Does it work the way you want it to? Is Scout, as a company, responsive to issues and question?

It seems to me that SMH has become much more stable/reliable lately, so I would assume that means Scout has therefore also become more stable/reliable.

I’m sure I’m not the only one considering signing up for Scout through ST, and many folks could likely benefit from the insight of existing users.


I am also interested in this same information.

I’m currently building a new house and I want to use a DIY home security system. I’ve been looking at SimpliSafe and Abode, but I really like the idea of doing everything through SmartThings too.

Would love to hear some more opinions on this!
