I’m still trying to figure out how I can connect my existing wired alarm (VISTA 20HWSE w/micro) to the SmartThings infrastructure so that I can fully utilize all of my wired sensors throughout my home (i.e. doors, windows, motion sensors, etc). Unfortunately, I don’t have the expertise to program a decoder and a stand computer interface to make it all work.
So with that being said, what about this new device from 2Gig called the Super switch takeover modulate? It’s only ~$50 and supports 8 inputs. Also, it can be coupled with a 2nd or 3rd to increase your number of inputs. Here’s a couple of links:
Do you guys think a SmartApp could be programmed to interface this clever Alarm Switch with the SmartThings infrastructure? Now as I’m writing I’m quickly realizing it totally depends on if this frequency band is supported by the SmartThings hub… hmmm.
Let me know if you guys have any ideas on this? or if you already know if there’s an existing Z-Wave compatible Super Switch to easily convert a wired alarm system into the SmartThings infrastructure?
Thanks in advance!
