Currently the UK market for smart home alarm/security systems seems very poorly served. Traditional alarm systems are for the majority either very ugly, very dumb or both.
I am looking to add home automation products to my house which I will shortly be doing a fair amount of remodelling to and have so far identified night-latch and mortice locks that can be linked via Z-Wave. These being the Yale Keyless Connected Smart Lock, and the Danalock V2. I have also found a door-cam/bell that can be integrated with Smartthings although it does not support Z-Wave, this is the SkyBell HD.
Where I am struggling is an alarm system. I would obviously need motion sensors, door open sensors, broken window sensors, i.e. the usual alarm type sensors most standard alarm systems support. I would hope to find a system that can include security cameras.
On the face of it you might expect the Yale Easy Fit range to be eminently suitable since Yale have substantial Z-Wave experience both in the US and the UK including as mentioned the Yale Keyless Connected Smart Lock. Unfortunately it seems all Yales alarm systems are proprietary and only work with their own smarthphone app.
There is also the Vivint Sky but this at the moment appears a US only product.
Update: The Verisure system looks good but also uses a proprietary system and therefore at best the only integration might be via IFTTT.
I am aware I could probably build my own system with just standard Z-Wave sensors but I would rather have an off-the-shelf system from a recognised brand which does have Z-Wave and/or Smartthings compatibility as this is likely to make insurers a lot happier than a purely DIY solution.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
