So long story short – there has been a series of break ins in our area, and in addition to the CCTV cameras we have up, we are keen to look at an alarm system.
I already have a large number of door and window sensors (a mixture of DIY, xiaomi and others) all integrated into HA and working for automation purposes.
I can see that theres a HA component for simplisafe, but does this work 2 ways ? Can i use my existing sensors in HA, and use that to trigger the SimpliSafe alarm? It would be annoying to have to swap them all out.
Ive started down the track of my own HA based alarm, and have it working, but struggling to key an entry pad that meets the Wife Approval Factor - and also like the idea of having key areas/sensors not reliant on HA in the event of something bad happens.
Im not set on SimpliSafe, its just the best option out of those that ive been able to find.
