I’m moving so resetting and re-adding all my devices to my current ST hub is not a problem right now… that being said… I’m trying to decide between buying a GC3 panel and fighting my way into making it a secondary controller to the ST hub OR simply get a ADT/ST panel.
I want my main door/motion sensors to be ADT as at some point I will be connecting the system to a monitoring service (alarm.com preferably) and truthfully, I don’t trust ST devices to handle security related stuff.
My main question is: Will the ST hub “see” the status of the door/motion sensors (2GIG sensors) from the GC3 panel? I don’t care about arming/disarming from ST, or using any ST sensor to trigger any monitored service alarm event. I simply want to be able to turn on a light if the door is opened for example… and do it in a reliable manner… If I need to be fixing the zwave network and re adding devices every couple of days Id rather get the ADT/ST panel hoping it’ll be less problematic.
I’m pretty sure that the ADT/ST panel can use the ADT sensors to trigger other automations on the ST side of things. (If someone can confirm)
I’m more inclined to get the GC3 because:
- It has a lot more devices that can be monitored (including ADT 5800 line of sensors)
- Rather have alarm.com than adt monitoring (unless someone convinces me ADT is better/equal option)
