Does that mean I can connect ANY compatible devices to some sort of hub? Trying to understand if I wanted to use ring and use arlo cameras I could do that on some hub or is that seperate? I want to be able to use my voice to turn on these cameras with alexa or just a bit confused... Trying to make automation easier.

It uses WIFI and has cellular back-up in case the power or WIFI goes out, if you pay for monitoring that is.

It has its own internal SIM card and battery back up. Activating that sim comes with the monitoring plan.

Waiting for Black Friday. I figure there will be a much better deal with many more sensors

FYI: Wait for black friday. I got the kit a year or so back with 3x contact sensors and 2x motion sensors (and an Amazon Echo) for $180. The sensors themselves are kind of pricey so it makes sense to buy a bigger kit right off the bat.

Battery. Every bit of this kit either works on battery (sensors) or has a battery backup (keypad+base station). As the other reply mentioned, the monitoring plan also enables the cellular backup functionality.

Just wondering how the monitoring works for this. I just moved to a new house and do not know/trust any neighbors to give them my key or ask them to receive notifications from alarm monitoring.
I assume they would contact me first if there is an alert or alarm, but what if I am away or cannot be reached. Who would the monitoring service contact? Police or Fire? What would happen if they responded and I gave no one in the neighborhood my key and I was unavailable?
I guess this question would be for any alarm and monitoring not just Ring.
