I know multiple people have mentioned this interest before, so I wanted to create a post about it. I switched from the SmartThings v2 Hub to the ADT hub. I have pretty happy with the performance and such of the ADT hub. I do subscribe to the ADT service offered. I am about to move to a MUCH larger home and would really like the ability to have multiple controllers/ADT screens throughout my home. I have contacted support and they said its a huge interest but they don’t know if it will happen or not.
I know that there are options like ADT Tools to add on keypads, but I think that the ease of use of the ADT panel is so much better. It shows when the system is armed or ready to arm, when doors and windows are open, and you can are/disarm/panic very easily. I like this because the majority of my guest don’t know or understand smart homes so having something so easy to use is important.
I assume that you can use Action Tiles, but I personally think that can get very messy and overwhelming for a guest. I also love the siren built into the panel because its very loud and I don’t have to add another device to my very large ST build.
My main concern is that the ADT system continues to get cheaper and cheaper from day 1. They have done multiple email sales for only this hub and now its at $150. This price, with no word on any updated version, makes me think that it is going to be discontinued. I could be wrong, just a gut feeling. I hate to go and buy two or three new panels and then find out they are discontinuing the panel and that the multi-panel option will never happen. I would be stuck with all of these useless devices and out quite a bit of money.
If anyone has any info on if this feature, please share!
