Hey again… Sorry for the delay in responding to this thread I started. Let’s see if I can cover everything with this post…
First off, I currently have a SmartThings hub, v2 I believe, bought from best Buy a couple months ago. I am however not married to it as I think I could still return it for store credit to use on other switches, sensors, etc.
As for the wired/wireless sensors… I’m pretty sure that the door sensors are all wired as I see the little magnetic contact disk thingy in the edge of the door and door frame on our 3 entry doors. Similarly, the downstairs windows all see to have the little contact disk in the bottom of the frame also so I’m guessing these are wired too.
As for my current “smart” devices… Right now I only have about a dozen light bulbs and only a couple of routines setup for a few of these. I also have an Echo Dot that I’m doing a tiny bit of voice stuff with at the moment with some of these lights. Again, nothing here I’m heavily invested in so I could totally start over with the ADT route.
Now, I believe that the fire/smoke detectors are wireless and Z-wave connected to the existing 2GIG panel. I would hope that these might be able to be connected to a new ADT panel to save a few bucks on equipment on that side.
One other thing that will impact the alarm side functions… We have a large dog, about 85 lbs Akita, so interior motion sensors for security are going to be out of the question.
Thanks again for any feedback. I’ll be more diligent about checking this thread daily.
