I’m looking to add security and monitoring to my new home. I have seen the many systems (Arlo, Ring, Simplisafe, Blink, ADT, Alarm.com, Nest, and many that I don’t recall at this moment), but I have not seen anyone explicitly mentioning mixed solutions. For example: use ADT for break-in professional monitoring and Ring for outdoor video surveillance with no professional monitoring.
Based on the above, what mixed solutions have you implemented and why?
What would you recommend for the following requirements: 1. Professional monitoring for break-ins. 2. Smartphone/tablets/indoor panels integration for remote control of entry doors and system status. 3. Outdoor surveillance cameras (not necessarilly professionally monitored, but would consider it). 4. Integration between solutions would be ideal, although not required.
