The Best Buy set appears to be a better value, but only if you are going to use everything that it comes with, For me it's a tough call because I don't think I'd use the extra keypad, but would use the second motion sensor but also would use a 4th contact sensor (HD kit only). I think I'd be further ahead though buying the BB set, selling the extra keypad and then buying an extra contact sensor.

How useful is this without the $15/month monitoring? I'm assuming you get everything the same, just except the outgoing phone call if the alarm is tripped?

Yah, according to their site, you still get notifications on your phone and email. If you have cameras or doorbells from them then it's really worth it to get the $10 protect plus plan. Otherwise camera is pretty much useless as it won't be able to store any videos.

Yep it really depends on your needs. Having two motion sensors and two keypads were a must for my situation. One motion sensor in the front door and the other for the walkout backyard entrance. One keypad for the front door and the other for the entrance from the garage.

It asks if you have Amazon Prime, if you don’t it calls the police

No geofence.
Use the app or keyboard to arm/disarm.

No thanks. I ended up buying the BB and HD set. Not 100% sure yet, but thinking of keeping the pieces from each set that I need and then selling off the remainder.

Exactly. I have Think Protection which provides live monitoring for $18.99 a month. It works out to free as I save $22 a month through my home insurance as I have live monitoring.

some questions guys.
1) How does this compare to Smartthings? I guess this is more of a live monitorning rather than automation.
I've already got a bunch of things (sensors, locks, alarm etc. ) from Smartthings.
2) Can you use third-party z-wave sensors with this kit or it's strictly OEM only?


Thanks a lot.

The extra motion sensor sold for me.

The $15 per month for monitoring, anyone has experience with it? Are they going to call your and call the cops if needs? Do they issue some kind of document for insurance discount?
