Thanks! I looked into iSmartAlarm. I’m considering it but it won’t work if the power or internet goes down. Same with Scout, but if I buy Scout’s monthly monitoring ($10) it will work even if the power and internet goes down.
Scout: I asked Scout if their monitor would work with my z-wave sensors. Their reply: “The Scout hub will only pair with and work with Scout Alarm sensors and our published integrations.”
SimpliSafe requires a $25/month fee, in order to manage the system online.
FrontPoint requires the use of a keypad panel, but I need to be able to manage my home’s security (including the hub) directly from my cell phone.
Abode: I checked Abode’s list of sensors that it’s compatible with. It would not be compatible with my sensors.
I think this all leads me back to SmartThings Hub v2. Even though it’s not as reliable as the rest.
Anyones’/everyones’ input is welcome.
