I have PIR sensors in several rooms within my house that are used purely for detecting movement when the home alarm is activated.
I’ve been thinking of various ways to make these devices
smarter. Without replacing the whole alarm system I’d like to be able to achieve the following
- Know when (via Smartthings) a PIR detects motion; at present, if my alarm goes off, I have no idea until I get home or a neighbor tells me (not that this happens frequerntly
- Detect temperature in these rooms
- Retain the use of the PIR for the current alarm system (wired PIR’s)
Is there anything on the market that would provide these types of capabilities? The important one is to retain the alarm functionality.
