Will the alarm trip if I removed the old motion sensors, even when it's unarmed?
I recommend you go with Envisalink, considering you already have a DSC panel, unless you want Ring's professional monitoring.

Like vkizzle said above, I would also recommend getting Envisalink 4 and do self monitoring. I bought mine from Aartech and set it up myself which was not too complicated.

I am looking at a new Nest or Ring alarm system to complement my current setup as it is wireless and cannot be "ripped off the wall" by burglars. But I would never consider "replacing" a working hardwired alarm like DSC that does not require maintenance or fee (ie: changing batteries).

I just noticed one of my contact sensors no longer chimes when I open the door. I haven't checked my other contact sensor b/c it's on a door that belongs to the owner but leads into my garage suite. Motion detector is still chiming.

I haven't changed the settings since installation but it looks fine. Possibly stopped working after a firmware update.

Edit: hmm seems to be fine now.

I'm moving into a house that has a DSC panel....do you have any particular resources that helped you with setting up the Envisalink?

Envisalink is pretty much plug and play, similar to setting up a router or modem. You just need to register an online account for remote access. Here's the installation guide: https://www.aartech.ca/related/Envisali ... 0Guide.pdf
The difficult part would be if you need to re-program your DSC panel depending if you know the installer/master code.
If you have to get a new DSC module, it comes with a detailed manual. There are tons of good Youtube videos that walks you through the programming aspect step by step.

Hi, thinking of getting the envisalink. You mentioned re program, does it mean assigning or adding certain sensor? I moved into my current home five years ago, it already had a security wired up. Then Grand alarm came in to install a new dsc panel. If I just want to keep the original configuration, would this be just a plug and play? Thanks.

Seems they took away the subscriber discount on the ring alarm systems :(
Can anyone else see if the discount comes up for them on the 14 piece system and please mention if you already have a registered ring alarm system or not.

I already have the ring alarm and tried adding one to my cart and it did not give me the discount. But their systems are already 20% off for Mother’s Day. So that might be the reason.

Red89GT is correct, in the fine print under the Buy now and save an EXTRA $30 just for Mother's Day.
*Not eligible for Protect Plus 10% Discount
Also in this thread I saw some people debating buying the US Costco bundles that include one year of ring protect plus plan, but I did not see anyone mention the downside of no 10% ring protect plan discount (If you want to buy cameras, or extra sensors, etc). From the FAQ here - Ring Costco FAQ
Do I get the 10% discount on Ring.com with my Ring Protect Plan from Costco?

No. The discount only applies to Ring Protect Plus subscriptions purchased through Ring.com. If you purchased your Ring Protect Plus subscription through a retailer, such as Costco, you’ll need to subscribe to Ring Protect Plus via Ring.com to qualify for the discount.

Sounds like they have put a stop to stacking discounts/coupons in addition to sale pricing

Ring.com was having a Mothers day sale. I purchased the 14-Piece Alarm Security Kit for $299 USD + 5% off = $284.05 USD. The 5% I received off was because the same kit was on sale on Amazon.com for $279.99 USD and included free Echo Dot 3. Unfortunately Amazon.com does not ship to Canada, so i asked Ring.com to offer me a discount.

Did I get a good deal?

That's the best you're going to get, unless you're already a protect plus subscriber.
