Absolutely NOTHING works with Rogers.

I can confirm that. Been trying to get something to work for almost 2 years.

If you don't need cameras, you should not need to spend more than $400-$500 CA$ for a full home security system, 100% wireless with $10/month monitoring. Check out the Honeywell Lynx systems.

See my posts here on how to do this: looking-complete-internet-enabled-home- ... #p26846463

You can add cameras to the Lynx system, however that will increase your costs above the $400-$500 mark.

Nope, no other hub will work with it.

well, rogers is giving me 2 weiser smart locks and $15 off the control package plus free installation.
so i end up paying $1080 for 2 years, i figure its not a bad deal.
i get $55 annually off my home insurance and after the hardware discounts. i'm really only paying about $500 for 2 years of monitoring.
i was hoping to at least use the cameras or some of the sensors with a new hub.............

Smart Door Lock should work or else how will u enter in to ur house after 2 years if you don't have Monitoring system from rogers anymore ?

I got an offer for Control package $40 per month from rogers. I am wondering, if Smoke/Fire Sensor, Carbon Monoxide Sensor or Water Leak Sensor will work if I stop Monitoring system from rogers it after 2 years ?

Of course the door lock will work but none of the other hardware you listed will work with any other system
