    I wouldn't touch them with a space elevator support pole!

    As for comments, most of us do not really use anything except Homeseer itself. Is there some kind of feature that the Vivint "box" provides that Homeseer does not?

    Tasker, to a person who does Homeautomation...is like walking up to a Crack Treatment facility with a truck full of 3lb bags of crack. Then for each person that walks in and out smack them in the face with an open bag.

      No offense meant to anyone, but that statement is actually true for HST as well. You get better support for the products that they carry in their store. Anything outside of what they have to offer may/may not be supported.

        This is due to many of the European Z-Wave devices not being fully Z-Wave compliant and the ever changing Z-Wave specs. I'm sure an alarm company can't or doesn't want to continually upgrade their firmware on a monthly basis so they stick with what they tested with and knows what works. This is even a better reason to control your Z-Wave installation with HomeSeer as the dev temp is constantly making changes to the code to allow out of spec or new spec devices to work as expected.

          So now I run two separate systems, one for home automation and the other for security, It just irks me to have two separate motion detectors sitting in the same place monitoring the same area, one to turn on the lights and the other to sound the alarm.

            Swap that system out with a DSC system and you can have total integration for not a whole lot of money.

              I have DSc with BLDSC Plug-in. Works great

                Can't you get motion events from vivint and use them to trigger stuff in HS?

                  Thanks, but not so much. I'm about a year into a 42 month contract with Vivint. I'll just go with two independent systems, one a managed security system, and the other... well not so managed.
