Much more secure (with more features) than my Smartthings setup. We currently rent so the wireless setup is what caught my attention in the first place. What you lay out in this post is very similar to my experience with a Samsung Smartthings setup (motion sensors, door sensors, smoke sensors) along with 2 Foscam cameras (code from rBoys), but connects to the cloud. I would rather have a completely internal system (i.e. no cloud connectivity) that only I can access remotely and securely (via VPN) as you mentioned. Thanks for sharing and if/when we become homeowners and this package is commercially available, I would be a customer.|
One quick note: my Foscam cameras have the ability to email/text pics upon motion intrusion along with capturing a short video and sending via FTP to an offsite location (in the event the intruders grab the camera(s) and take the SD card with it or they find/take the computer equipment with said video). This all assumes Internet connectivity of course!
