I’ve just started using HA and looking at integrating it as my home alarm system too. I have a combination of zwave devices and xiaomi pir/door triggers.
I have a few concerns.
- if power is lost (blackout or intentionally by thieves), I need a backup system. So I will need the xiaomi gateway and rp3 running off a UPS.
Is this the best solution? What are others using?
- I need a siren system that will run when the power is off too. I thought of using a xiaomi plug with an adapter powering a siren/strobe. But again, if power goes out, this won’t work.
I’m having a hard time finding outdoor zwave sirens that are Australian frequency compatible.
Any ideas please??
