Is there a smart home security panel that connects to wifi/zwave?


#1

My house was built with hardwired motion sensors and door sensors with a security panel next to the front door. I don’t have a security service but figured since I already have motions sensors in every room it would be nice if I could replace the security panel with a panel that connects to wifi or zwave and can make use of all of the motions sensors.

Does such a thing exist? Is it possible to make use of the motion sensors already hardwired into my house via wifi or zwave?

There are quite a few threads on this topic on the community. If you have a Vista alarm panel you can integrate it with this appliance where it acts as another keypad:

If you want to completely remove the panel you can hook up the sensors via the Konnected:

You can even use the ST_Anything library to integrate your devices as well.

Again there are many other threads on alarm integration.

If you want an easier way to search, you can try the quick browse lists in the community – created wiki, look at the bottom of that page for the project report section, and choose the list for “security.” That’s where you’ll find a topic threads on third party integration, including the various options that @ritchierich already mentioned. :sunglasses:
