Nice, I got a Smartthings hub a few months ago and have been waiting on a sale for these. I ordered a total of 8 door/window sensors and 2 motion under 4 different orders. Came out to about $230. I just hope the range is sufficient to cover the rooms off my garage. Anyone have a chime recommendation? I want something that alerts us when a door is opened (but not a full fledged siren).

Currently running a Simplisafe Systems that I installed 4 years ago. Hoping I can sell it to recoup this cost. Think I have 20 door/windows sensors + water + 2 motion +siren + 2 keychain remotes. Not going that crazy this time around though. I spent over $1000 on the Simplisafe system when we first moved here.

Anyone try these with smartthings yet? Reviews say they don't pair/work with the wink hub.

If your current equipment is working why bother changing it out? Will you have that much more at the end of the process?

SimpliSafe is proprietary. I want something I can integrate with my other devices (Nest/Wemo/MyQ/etc)

But isn't simplisafe more secure? With smarthings if your internet line is cut you can't get alerted.

Supposedly, yes.

The real problem (in my location) is that the police determined they're too busy to take care of house alarms. So, you have your simplisafe, which communicates wirelessly to your monitoring central (for which you pay a monthly fee) and when someone triggers the alarm, the cops won't come. This makes the whole thing useless.

I know smartthings is *not* a fully fledged alarm system, but at least it will notify me (provided people don't cut my internet cable) if a sensor is tripped. Once that happens I can quickly log in and activate some cameras I have inside the house and see if there's someone. The police will come if they have what they call "secondary evidence" that a crime is in progress (such as someone reporting it you watching the scene over a camera.)

Reality is that homes in most of the US are not made with security in mind. I've lived in places that felt like you were sleeping inside a bank vault. Smilie

are you sure about that? if police don't respond to emergencies, they could be sued

So, this is $5 off $25, which means I need to do three transactions to buy three, or else I'll lose the discount?

These sorts of devices typically are ridden with vulnerabilities, they can let people into your cyber space. These days your digital vault is more valuable than your physical one. Your money is just an ACH push away. Your bits are easier to steal, easier to sell and you'll find out only when it's too late.

I actually replaced a SimpliSafe system with SmartThings myself, for similar reasons. I like the control you get with SmartThings.

I recommend the Aeon Labs Gen 5 Doorbell to use as a door chime for SmartThings. You can basically just ignore the doorbell button, and use the plug-in speaker as a door chime - I am doing this and it works fantastic. The speaker itself is basically a mini MP3 player, so you can load up any sounds you like to play when things happen. Here's a great review of the product with more details on how to set it up like this: http://darwinsden.com/aeon-labs-d...tec-zw056/

I ordered 6 of these door/Window sensors and 2 of these motion sensors from Monoprice last week, and set them up yesterday with my SmartThings system. They work flawlessly, don't event need custom device type handlers or anything - just pair them and that's it. I discovered this sale because I went back to buy more! Highly recommended.

You can either do separate $25+ transactions with the $5 off coupon, or you can buy 4 of these to hit the $20 off $100+ coupon. I did both Smilie
