I’m thinking of deploying an ST for home automation and security. I havent decided exactly WHAT i want to do in terms of security, but I was thinking motion sensors+door modules+video. Something simple along those lines. I just wanted to know, other than always-on requirement for internet access, are there any caveats I should be aware of?
For a security system to require an internet connection is obviously a bit of an issue, but if I decide to go this route, I’m willing to pay for secondary wireless internet connection to another provider and use an old WRT54G use a floating route (aka failover) to mitigate. SHOULD cost <$5/month + $100-200 for the connection. I hope. Maybe there is a more elegant solution I havent thought of…
EDIT: Oh and a UPS for power.
