Posted in a previous thread:
These ADT sensors cannot be used with a standard, non-ADT ST hub. There will never be a workaround for this because it's a hardware issue (ADT uses a proprietary communication protocol with a different radio). This comes up every time these get posted so I figured I'd preempt the questions.
* With the exception of the water leak sensor which is compatible with both ADT and regular Smartthings hubs. But the water leak sensor is sold out (unless you buy the expansion kit which then includes smoke and CO alarms that are not compatible.)
The ADT Smartthings branded hub can accept all other non-ADT branded Smartthings-compatible devices and they integrate fine. However, only the ADT branded Smartthings accessories can be used for monitoring through ADT.
You do not need to purchase ADT monitoring with the ADT Smartthings branded hub. You can self-monitor through alerts.
