I’m looking to replace the alarm system in my home with something a bit smarter and thought the Smart Things Hub and some sensors potentially a good way to go. Before I do, I have a few questions:
How well have has it worked for people as a home security/alarm system? I’m planning on a few of the Samsung Smart Things Motion Sensors and Samsung Smart Things Multi Sensor on key doors. May be a camera later on?
Is it support officially in New Zealand? It’s being offered by http://www.mobilefun.co.nz/56504-samsung-smartthings-hub.htm. That said I believe the Z-wave frequency isn’t supported (to close to cellular frequency ) here so I’ll have to disable that out of the box and go ZigBee only.
Can anyone recommend a reliable and compatible ZigBee alarm box or internal siren? - If someone did break in I would like to show my displeasure.
