I’m excited to finally announce today the availability of a new product by Konnected – the Konnected Alarm Panel INTERFACE. Available now starting at $99
This new product allows you to connect an existing wired alarm system in parallel with Konnected. This gives you the ability to monitor all of your wired zones in SmartThings, Home Assistant, OpenHAB or Hubitat just like the original Konnected product, but without interfering with the operation of your existing wired alarm.
The new board has special circuitry that lets it tap into any brand of wired alarm system sensor loop without interfering with the existing system. It’s designed to be connected in parallel with any type of wired open/close, motion, glass-break or other typical alarm system sensor (except for 2-wire smoke detectors) directly and at any EOL resistance value, therefore the brand or model of panel doesn’t matter.
Since the launch of our original Konnected Alarm Panel product a year ago, we’ve helped convert thousands of wired alarm systems all over the world to smart home systems. However, we heard from a lot of you that you wanted to keep your existing wired alarm and keypads but also wanted to be able to re-use those wired zones for automaton. This product is for you!
This is NOT a replacement or successor to the original Konnected Alarm Panel . It’s a new product with a different use case, and we will continue selling and supporting the original Konnected Alarm Panel as well as the new Konnected Alarm Panel INTERFACE for the foreseeable future.
We have a limited quantity from our first production run available now. Due to the busy holiday season, please allow 1 - 2 weeks for processing and shipment. We’re doing our best to get all orders out in time for the Christmas holiday, but this isn’t guaranteed.
I want to also extend a huge thank you to community member @blebson who was instrumental in the creation of this product, including the design of the hardware and circuitry. Thank you, Ben and welcome to the Konnected team!
Thank you to all the Konnected users out there who have been generous with their feedback, praise and criticism of our technology. Its your passion and excitement that keep us motivated to build more great products like this! Don’t be shy with your questions and feedback.
