I’m from Canada and I wanted to know what everyone’s experience with setting up this hub outside of the US was like. I’ve been reading most of the posts and there is very little information. Hopefully this topic can act as a resource for everyone that owns this hub or is thinking of buying it.
I’m very interested in buying this hub as it seems to combine everything I’m looking for when it comes to home automation and security. But before I take the plunge I have a few questions. All these questions pertain to people experience setting up the hub outside of the USA.
How was the setup?
Any specific process to get this hub activated?
Any success to have monitoring activated?
Can this hub be unlocked (installer code)?
Can you replace the communicator module (Verizon) with the Canadian variant (Rogers)?
Are you currently using it only for Self-Monitoring?
How are you using this hub? What is your current setup?
Which app are you currently using (SmartThings Classic or SmartThings)?
Do you recommend to buying this hub?
Any additional info would be greatly appreciated.
