V-Home by Vodafone


#1

Hi all
Recently purchased the v-home starter kit from Vodafone during Black Friday. Comes with the SmartThings WiFi/hub, SmartThings camera, zipato indoor siren and a SmartThings multipurpose sensor.

With Vodafone, you are expected to sign up to a v-home monthly plan subscription. As far as I understand it, it just gives the capability to have cloud storage for the camera recordings, 24/7 alarm assistant if you miss any alerts and a v-home monitor(?).

Would I be able to use the devices (camera/sensor/hub) without the subscription?
I assume it would just give me standard video capture/live viewing and alerts if there was motion?

Thanks in advance!


Is there money in Smart Home consulting?

Any news if the subscription is mandatory?

Hi Adao,

Question for you, where do you live?
Germany?

Did the hub come with a EU socket/plug?

Thinking to buy, but wondering if I should by via Vodafone or Amazon UK…

I live in Belgium. (it’s ok)
