Looking for some advice here. I’d like to replace our old “Dumb” home alarm system (UK), but I’d also like to be able to use some of those same elements for my home automation.
I Could, for example go down the Yale Smart Living route, but my understanding is that it’s a closed ecosystem.
I’d like to have motion sensors in my home alarm, that can also be used to say… turn on the lights when I walk into a room at night.
So I know about z-wave Door/window sensors, and motion sensors, cameras, etc… but the question is how to integrate the alarmy bits: notably a siren, and a keypad control. What kind of z-wave/smartthings kit is there out there? How can this all be integrated together (armed/disarmed?)
I guess the rules would be fairly simple: If Armed (away mode?) and motion detected, or sensor activated, then beep keypad for 10 seconds then activate Siren, and send notification.
Anyone have experience doing this?
