I moved into a new house and need to install an alarm system. I have been waiting patiently for the launch of Hub 2.0 for many months now (as I am sure most of you have as well…) and can no longer wait. Someone on this community mentioned the new hub will allow integration with security systems without an external PC.
Can someone point me in the right direction as to what would be the safest bet in installing a system that will eventually be compatible with v 2.0? I have spent weeks researching and my research has not indicated any hub that currently allows for easy integration with security systems without the need of additional external PCs or other devices.
My requirements are:
1 -Professional monitoring (one of the $8.99/month or so services would be fine, not sure what the best option is yet)
2- No need for a land line
3- Ability to work with wireless sensors (door/windows, motion, water, etc).
4- Relatively simple to install and setup.
5- Future integration with SmartThings hub v 2.0
Thank you in advance for your help! Hopefully this will also help other in similar situation as mine as I believe integration with security systems is currently a weak spot for smart homes and an area with a lot of potential.
