Cancel rogers home monitoring service

Hi, I have cancelled my rogers home monitoring service, I have two cameras ,I have pre-installed ADT sensor which rogers toke control over it, I want to know if there is any hub that I can control the Rogers camera, I do not need the sensor to be working , I only want the cameras and control them. Please advice.

Would Samsung SmartThings Smart Home Hub can pair up Rogers camera..?

Thank you.

Instead of going with Rogers I just built my own. I'm approaching 1k but at the very least it's tailored to what I wanted plus a ton of extras.

If you are with Rogers can you use other cameras with their system.

$1k is not a lot when it comes to cameras and security system. Even if you build a smartthings system, all those sensors and hub costs add up. When you talk about wired IP camera for exterior, professional installation alone will cost a lot.

This is my thought as well - I spent $40 on the Xiaomi cameras with fang hacks.

Zigbee is for remote control not for streaming camera video. Likely the Rogers cameras are locked to a propretiary protocol, encrypted streams, or hard coded to only send streams to their monitoring center.

But since the wires are in place, it should be pretty easy to swap the camera for an off the shelf camera.

A mid-range consumer surveillance system will run about $300 a camera with installation, so $2,500 - $3,000 is about the price you'll pay for a 8 camera system. This is excessive for most people ... and of course there are cheaper options.

Since installing a system several years ago, I've caught the following on my cameras:
  • Shooting on the street
  • Drive by shooting get-away car (yes, shooting #2)
  • House explosion
  • Car crash into stop sign
And other random miscellaneous things. Personally I think it's worth it, it's nice to be able to watch the front door when in the basement or keep an eye on the kids in the backyard. It's all about peace of mind.
Just random weirdness in the neighborhood, and I supposedly live in a good part of town!

+1... each wireless contact for windows and doors is already (retail) $175... or maybe that was a motion sensor... but either way, each piece adds up quickly.

Damn, you need to move.

I installed 10 cameras to cover the perimeter of my house. The police knocked on my door two weeks after installation because some one hit a street sign and abandoned their car. I caught the whole thing on video.

I paid a more than $3,000 for my setup, but it is worth it.

I sincerely feel sorry for you.
I live in South American (Ecuador), and I’ve never ever ever seen anything like that here. And it’s “supposed” to be dangerous here.
