So like a good number of other people I’m making the move from Iris to Smartthings - I didn’t use Iris for a lot of things but would appreciate some guidance from you all as I start to make the switch.
My home system contains a few motion sensors and NYCE door hinges on all exterior doors - 2 key pads - and some random other stuff that I’m not too worried about.
The main reason I installed the motion and door hinges is because with my work I’m often in and out all hours of the day and night and so my wife can “arm” the doors and get notified when they open and if motion is detected in the key areas. We also have two settings so if we are home motion is only picked up in some areas and if we are totally gone more motion detectors come into play.
We didn’t do Professional monitoring but rather just preferred the text/phone calls where we could check what was going on and make the decision on what to do next.
So I guess my first question is - can I do all of the above with SmartThings? I haven’t seen a Keypad for Smarthings listed anywhere, and what about the text/phone calls if a door is opened/etc…? I know SmartThings is setup to be more of a Smart home system than a Security system and I liked how Iris kindof bridged that gap, but I’m hoping I can do something similar without breaking the bank.
Thanks in advanced!
