15% off Konnected Smart Home Alarm + Free Shipping @ Smart Guys

80

Hi Guys,

We have recently added the Konnected smart alarms to our range. As a launch price we are providing 15% off the RRP. We have set our RRP to be lower than what it is from the US store. So hopefully it is seen as a good deal.

Essentially these alarms are to smarten up existing dumb alarms. You can either replace the board and use all the sensors and sirens still or you can interface to your existing alarm.

Konnected connects to Home Assistant, Hubitat, Smartthings…

More info on our site.

Regards,

Smart Guys

    Anything I can use for an existing ducted aircon system (Daikin)? Specifically something that can help tell us the temperature and remotely control the AC for our kid's room.

    •  

      Hey,

      Does your ducted aircon system have a remote control of some sort? If so, you can use a broadlink device to repeat the signals, and combine with a smart thermostat to create automations!

      Take a look at iZone. We added it to our Samsung ducted. Keeps the compressor, replaces the wall controller. Gives per-room temperature control.

    While konnected is neat and fairly easy for the uninitiated. It should be mentioned the software is open source and can be installed on even a wemos D1.
    My personal preference is to use ESPHome for the sensor behaviour due to better integration with my existing system

      Hey,

      Thanks for raising this - you are spot on that this can be achieved using wemos D1s. ESP home is also awesome for getting things into home assistant. For anyone looking to go down this path, here is a link to the firmware:

      Wemos D1s are also dirt cheap on ebay, at around $8.

      Happy automating!

    I am looks for a very simple alarm which can be added to HomeAssistant but can be still used without HA if I decide to ditch it.
    Do you have any advice?

      The Konnected starter kit is always still an option - it doesn't necessarily need home assistant as you can use it with the Samsung smartthings app without the hub.

      Do you have existing wiring and sensors in place or would you be looking to add those in afterwards? If this is a completely fresh install, I would also consider the Ness D8x or Ness D16x as this is an awesome standalone alarm system that works with home assistant as well as by itself.

      We sell this module: https://smartguys.com.au/elfin-ew10-rs232-to-wifi-module.htm...

      That module allows you to make the Ness D8x or D16x smart and integrate with the Ness app or with Home Assistant.

        Fresh install.
        Thank you - will check Ness.

    Hi. I have some questions:

    • Once "paired" with SmartThings Hub, what is Konnected Mobile App used for? Is it necessary?

    • Is the only difference between Starter Kit and Pro version the PoE and Ethernet connectivity? Any other reason to chose Pro if planning to connect via WiFi only?

    • Is it possible to trigger Konnected alarm siren based on events in SmartThings e.g. SmartThings water leak zigbee sensor i.e. which is not directly wired into the Konnected alarm?

    • Is Konnected compatible with Bosch alarms?

      Hey,

      • The Konnected Mobile App is primarily used for setting up the first time and maybe debugging if required. Once set up and connected to the home automation platform of your choice, you no longer need the Konnected Mobile App if you don't want it. Also note that you don't need to have a SmartThings hub to make this work - Konnected have a cloud service that means you can use the free SmartThings app to control your alarm - the hub is optional.

      • PoE and ethernet is the biggest difference. The other difference to consider is that each Pro board has 12 zones, whereas each Starter kit board only has 6 zones. Of course, you can expand and add as many boards as you want, but some may prefer to just have 1 board with 12 zones versus two with 6 each.

      The pro board also has an ESP32 chip on board, which is a bit more powerful than the ESP8266 chip on the starter boards.

      • Yes, you can trigger the alarm siren connected to the Konnected board using SmartThings automations which you program in the app.

      • Konnected is compatible with any wired alarm system. If you have a Bosch with wired sensors, the Konnected interface kit will work. However, if any of your sensors are wireless, these will not work with Konnected unfortunately.

      Hope this helps!

        Thanks for the reply, much appreciated. Now to make a decision…

    Do you have a solution for wireless sensors? I am planning to get wireless sensors for my home as it’s very hard to install wired ones and was planing to get Bosch 6000 alarm but that alarm does not to any automation and a security company quoted me $5k for the alarm with 9 wireless sensors and 2x remotes. I want to install something that does automation, so any suggestions?

    •  

      Check out if the Ness D16x would work for you. Great alarm at a good price, supports wireless sensors and also works really well with home assistant. If you want something more advanced, the Ness M1 is also an option. If you are based in Sydney, I can recommend an installer for Ness and Bosch.

      •  

        Do you sell these Nessus ones?
        Also, if these nessus are wireless then cant it be done DIY? Why do we need installer?

        •  

          We don't sell Ness alarms, but they can be found easily online. You can do it DIY if you want and if you are comfortable with programming zones. The tricky part is that everything is just a bunch of codes that you enter on the keypad to program it, but this is all clearly stated in the manual.

    Do you have any recommendations for an installer in Brisbane? I want to install a smart alarm system rather than pay $6k for Bosch S6000 alarm which does not integrate into anything.
