    Ah, alarm monitoring, not PI monitoring.

    I'm assuming you don't want to use a 3rd party monitoring party via the phone line?

    When you say "Internet monitoring" what did you have in mind; Direct or via 3rd party? You can monitor direct via HS3 and the PI, no?

    (I've disconnected my ADT interface as it's no longer cost effective since the panel notifies me directly now via HS and I can check the onsite cameras before I decide to call the police/fire directly.)

    It's for my son - a millennial - who doesn't have a landline. He won't want to pay for cellular service for the panel either as his big concern is more about making sure the fire department gets called to get the dogs out if there is a fire when they are not home than it is about burglary.

    We started with a Qolsys panel which is good, but it has no integration capabilities at all. So I want to put in a panel that can still use the same wireless sensors installed for the Qolsys panel, but can be armed/disarmed/etc. by HomeSeer. Any of the GE/Interlogix panels should work for the sensors, it's finding a panel that can communicate with HomeSeer and be monitored via internet that is the challenge.

    Greetings!

    I am in need of a security system that can be automated with HomeSeer (of course), that works with the GE 5800 series wireless sensors, and that I can get monitoring for using the Internet. Tall order I know.

    Can the Concord 4 do all of this?

    The HomeSeer piece I got with the automation module, check.

    GE 5800 series wireless sensors (S-Line) I am pretty sure work with C4 - anybody know any different?

    The monitoring via TCP/IP is got me a little baffled because I cannot see anything in the parts list that even suggests Ethernet or TCP/IP. Does anybody know of an add-on for the C4 that allows this?

    Thanks!

    Matt is the sensor, wireless expert so hopefully he'll pop in shortly.
