    Best z-wave compatible around ?

    Greetings to all,

    I left VERA and I am going to join Homeseer.
    I'm sorry if this has been asked in the past, but I could not find -or did not search enough- any topic about security system using z-wave technology.

    I am planning on buying the hometroller pro s3 and a z-troller to connect whatever I have currently.

    I'd like to add a security system in the future, something cool with a touch panel eventually. Anyone can recommend something ? I heard in the past about 2GIG (i heard good words because of the nice control panel).

    Anyone tried it ? If not, is there anything outside that looks as nice as this one ? The better it looks, the less troubles I'll have with my wife

    Cheers !

    If memory serves me correctly it doesn't integrate well with other Z-Wave primary controllers. Use this Google search for the 2GIG Security System on this board, there are a few hits.

    site:board.homeseer.com 2GIG security system

    I would recommend the DSC system as it integrates well with HomeSeer and is a very good system and is affordable. Then you can add your touch screens to HomeSeer and control your home and security system.

      Greetings Rupp,

      I checked it out. It looks nice because it's all wireless.. But I did not see anything about z-wave in their web site.

      How does it integrate with homeseer then ?
      Hard wire ?

      Thank you

        Yes the can is hardwired to your HS server via the it-100 but the sensors can be wireless.

          Hi Rupp,

          Thanks again.
          Can you buy from DCS directly, or did you have to go through a distributor ?
          Any recommendation on the main system, and control panels ?

          Thanks !

            not sure how this works.. most likely you would use this instead of homeseer... if that is the case.. i wouldnt use it.. but i was going to look into it to figure out what they are doing. never got to it..

            my current alarm is concord 4 and I use the superbus 2000 automation module and it works with my wireless sensors...

            but ADT has the ADT Pulse.. it is z-wave.. not sure if there is a way to figure out what model panel it is and buy one... program it and interface it with homeseer.. i think that would be nice...

              You can the hardware from any vendor just make sure you get the hardware supported by the plugin.

                The ADT Pulse system will not interface with HomeSeer depending on which security panel they install - the panel might interface ie Vista 20p but that is locale specific as to what security panel is installed. Their Z-Wave is very limited at this point to specific part numbers with specific brands. If you are already using HomeSeer really not the way to go IMHO.
