That particular sensor is using RF 345 MHz and is not compatible with SmartThings. To connect the sensor directly to the SmartThings hub it would to be Zwave, Zigbee, or Lan Connected; it would also require a supported device type handler. There are methods of connecting third party alarm sensors to the SmartThings. I don't have any direct experience with ...

Generally speaking you have to adjust the trigger for the motion detection. There's the sensitivity for the actual motion detection and that is as bravokeyl already says despite all technology most efficiently done by trial and error. That might not work the same for all times of day due to low sun, clouds and other factors changing the lighting. Also cats. ...

Based on the information provided so far, it can be concluded that ADT and Honeywell have provided a good home security system. Why? There is no public technical infomation on the wireless transmitter used in Honeywell 5816 Wireless window and door sensors. It looks like Honeywell has white labeled the wireless door and window sensor from Ademco Security ...

My DLink camera also warns me about luminosity changes (clouds,...) but no too often. Take a look at your camera settings to search for a "threshold" value and reduce it. Another quite heavy solution should be to upload pictures to a local FTP (or something else) server, watch for file modifications and send them less often via a program which handles a ...

Dropcams and Nest Cams connect to the Nest cloud service using 2048-bit RSA private keys for key exchange, implement perfect forward secrecy and encrypt data between Dropcam/Nest Cam and the Nest cloud service using AES 128-bit encryption and Transport Layer Security (TLS). https://nest.com/privacy/data/ Though, that is not enough, there are some known ...

The default operation of the camera(s) may not be secure. If security features are enabled, it will likely include authorization and encryption to get at the video feed. However, your are best assuming that even with security features enabled - your cameras are not secure. There are back doors baked into these products on many levels before the device is ...

This sort of product may not be popular because it doesn't offer the consumer level features that permit the manufacturer to charge a premium. If it doesn't appeal to the tech press (i.e. conform mostly to existing convention) then it won't sell, certainly not at a good price. Remote operation would come high up on the 'necessary feature' list, and that ...

No. Your goals and concerns contradict with each other: My deadbolt can be flaky and once unlocked, it could be stuck and not be able to lock again. Points out that the goal of I am wondering if there is a way to limit the smart lock to allow only lock but not unlock? Is not meaningfully achievable, since the "lock" attempt might not actually ...

I don't have the setup in question with me but I try to answer in general. Normally any sensor that detects changes in motion depends on the configuration that we set for sensitivity, threshold. I presume the camera in the question might have an option to set the sensivity threshold, exactly how much threshold to put is uncertain to say. In my opinion, the ...

Give this one a try. It is talking about connecting your old wired sensor endpoints from the Alarm panel to Smartthings. There might be something that you can get from reading the post.

I am running Home Assistant on a Raspberry Pi and have had a lot of success using the Aeotec Gen5 Z-Wave control stick (USB). I bought several of the GoControl WNK01-21KIT kits and the door sensors have been working really well, but that is just one of many Z-Wave door sensor options.

I think most locks will offer option number 1. For 2: The Schlage locks state this Built-in alarm technology senses potential security breaches at the lock, while the low battery indicator offers advanced warning for battery replacement Also I found August has the following alerts: The Door is locked or unlocked manually This alert notifies you when someone ...

You don't "flash" software to a pi in the same way you do a micro controller based device. You can easily update software OTA (over the air) to a Raspberry pi, just by copying the files to the device and restarting the application. If you want to automate this sort of thing then using a service like balena.io will do it for you. You just need to package ...
