Skybell + SmartThings + Alarm.Com (ADC)?


(Marc Van Heyningen) #1

I’m considering adding a SkyBell doorbell to my modest system, which includes both SmartThings and an alarm.com based security system (FrontPoint).

As I understand it, there are actually two different versions of the SkyBell doorbell; a “normal” one you can buy anywhere, and a special alarm.com version which integrates with their app’s video feed. (At this point it’s not clear to me what the advantage of this is, other than using their app rather than SkyBell’s app, which hardly seems like something I’d pay a monthly fee for, but I’m still gathering information)

Anyway, my question is, if one gets the alarm.com version of SkyBell, will it also work with SmartThings? Or does the SmartThings integration apply only to the non-ADC version?
