If your home security alarm system is beginning to show its age, you may be able to revive it by adding a new piece of hardware called the Konnected Alarm Panel, which has been specifically designed to connect to your existing wired alarm system and transform it into a smart home security system using SmartThings or Home Assistant. Once installed Konnected requires no monthly fee to protect your home and offers a comprehensive smartphone application designed for both android and iOS devices. Watch the demo video below to learn more about the Konnected Alarm Panel and how it can be wired to your existing alarm system.
Millions of homes are built pre-wired for alarm systems, but most of these systems are decades outdated. Wired alarm systems have traditionally been closed systems that you had to pay a monitoring company up to $100 per month to use!
Many homeowners with pre-installed alarm systems rarely or never use them because they are inconvenient, ineffective or too expensive to maintain. Features of adding Konnected to your existing home security alarm system :
• Add a touch screen panel to your existing alarm system
• Get notified on your phone when a door or window opens or another sensor is tripped
• Automatically arm and disarm your system with proximity detection
Now with the Konnected Alarm Panel, you can free yourself from expensive contracts, and at the same time, connect all of your door & window sensors, motion detectors, smoke/CO2 detectors & more to your favorite home automation hub or service. Konnected makes your home’s old wired alarm system relevant again by connecting it to popular home automation hubs. Today, Konnected integrates with SmartThings. Home Assistant support will be ready this January!
If you are interested in being one of the very first1st to own the Konnected Alarm Panel, the hardware has this week launched by Kickstarter and is now available to back with pledges starting from $69 and shipping expected to take place during February 2018.
