      Good system that needs software improvement

      System Install: I am a current SmartThings v2Hub user that just migrated to this ADT Hub a couple days ago. Migrating all my devices took a while as I had to remove and exclude all of them from my existing SmartThings Hub before re-adding them to the new hub. Yes that meant setting up all my "Things" and automations all over again. If there was a simpler hub migration process, it was not easily shown by the app so this is something Samsung needs to work on. Once I completed that I began installing the SmartThings ADT sensors. Installations was very straight forward and everything installed without issue. The ADT sensors are a little different as it asks you to scan a QR code with your phones camera or enter the long serial number on the sensor you are installing. Now over to the ADT Panel.. The panel is very simple in functionality and has an Arm Stay, Arm Away, Settings and a few other buttons on the front screen itself. There are also 2 large buttons on the side that will let you choose a panic function or return to the home screen. Setting up the connection to your home Wifi is as simple as selecting your wireless network and then entering the password. Once connected the device will update its firmware and then you should be ready to continue setting up the panel. In the settings you will be able to add users and passcodes so people can disarm the system. You can also change the default master code (highly recommend this). The master code is the only code that will be able to adjust settings on the panel so don’t forget it! Setting up ADT monitoring through the SmartThings App: You will notice the “Home Security ADT” right on the dashboard as you open the SmartThings app. You can review all the sensors that the app can see by tapping on the words “Home Security”. This section also allows you sign up for live monitoring of your system by ADT. This is completely optional so should you want to manage all alerts on your own, you can choose to do so. I signed up for the “ADT Home & Life Safety” monitoring package just so they can monitor for fire, smoke, and water leaks at $14.99 a month. The first month is free but you need to cancel service a couple days before the end of the month if you don’t want to continue using it. You can cancel service without calling ADT using the SmartThings app at any time. Stepping through the ADT account setup is again very simple and straight forward. At the end of the setup, you will be asked to test and trigger the alarm for the sensors you will have them monitoring so you may want to do this while people are not sleeping haha. SmartThings App & ADT functionality: If you have used SmartThings before the app does not look any different aside from the ADT section on the main dashboard. Using your “Things” works exactly the same. You can use the ADT sensors to trigger home automation functions just like any other sensor you may have purchased such as Ecolink, Aeotec, Iris, etc. Now this is important.. If you had other sensors you CAN NOT use them to alert ADT if you sign up for live monitoring. The ONLY sensors you can use with live monitoring are the Smartthings ADT branded sensors. The other downside is none of you smart devices can be used to disarm the Security system. For example, I wanted my Schlagle smart lock to disarm the system when I unlocked my front door using my locks passcode… this is NOT currently possible with this system. Also, you cannot setup the system to trigger home automation functions when the alarm is triggered. So if the Alarm goes off and you wanted it to turn on all your smart lights, it can’t do that. PROS: • Simple to setup, install and configure on your own. • Not locked into several year contract should you decide to sign up for live monitoring. • Having optional live monitoring integrated with your SmartThings setup is nice. • ADT Panel is very bright, responsive, and easy to read. • You get an exit delay when arming the system so you have time to leave. CONS: • Price.. yes it’s not cheap considering many home security providers give you free equipment when you sign up (stuck in contract though). • Very limited alarm notification functionality. When someone disarms the system the alert just says “system disarmed” it does not tell you what user name/code disarmed it.. This is a huge concern for me. Also you can only set it up so 1 phone number is sent a text message.. all others get the push alert through the SmartThings app. • There is no option to select a specific ringtone or sound file to be used for alarm alerts through the SmartThings app. It will use the same sound all the other SmartThings alerts use. • You cannot setup an alarm alert to trigger any home automation functions. So if the alarm goes off, you cannot have it turn on lights or activate any of your SmartThings. • You can’t use any of your SmartThings to arm or disarm the security system. So you can’t have your smartlocks disarm the system when you unlock the door using a lock passcode. Final thoughts are that the hardware portion of the system is solid, but it’s still lacking in alert notification and a lot of “smart home” functionality that will allow it to integrate with all your SmartThing devices. Samsung.. you need to get your SmartThings team moving fast on the list of CONS above as other competitors have a lot of this working already!! People can get over the price but the last 4 bullets under my CONS section will be a show stopper for many of us.

      Powerful DIY Home Security with added Smarthome

      I replaced my SmartThings hub v2 with this product. I'll start with the bad: 1) ADT will only be alerted if one of the new ADT sensors triggers the alarm (not all the SmartThings sensors that were sold prior to this hub) The original sensors can do everything other than alert ADT. Luckily, the new ADT sensors are cheaper than the original sensors. 2) Some of my Samsung SmartHome Appliances don't work with this where they worked with the v2 hub. Good news is Samsung is integrating all their smart home apps soon so they might work again soon. They are working on this as some of them have come back into SmartThings. 3) You can't get the system to arm automatically when you leave and disarm when you come home. There is a workaround using 3rd party software... for now. 4) I had to delete everything from my old hub and add everything to the new hub. The Good: 1)The new ADT sensors are cheaper than the original SmartThings sensors and they are more secure (I haven't had a false alarm on these sensors where I had many on the other sensors), I just use the original sensors in the house for other tasks like turning lights on/off for closet doors... 2) The Smart Home appliances that didn't work with SmartThings now connect in a new app... Samsung Connect that is being merged with the SmartThings app sometime in March 2018 supposedly. 3) The auto functionality arm and disarm can be added by using 3rd party software. 4) I finally have an alarm panel to arm/disarm my home security system that works really well and looks good. 5) Almost all the things that were on my original hub work with this hub (Smart Appliances and Samsung cameras are the only exception) Update: the Samsung cameras are added back in but don't show an image like they did before so some progress but not 100% yet. 6) Still connects to my Arlo Cameras 7) ADT monitoring! They are very professional and whenever I have an issue they have been exceptional.

      I do not review often (although I should) but I have nothing good to say about this product. I am pretty tech-savy and already have my house running under a Smartthings hub. Firstly, as you may have read, if you have an existing ST hub, you will not be able to migrate your devices over to this. This is a minor annoyance but I decided to split my house into a security side (ADT hub) and automation side (ST hub). All devices recognized perfectly including 2 more door sensors, smoke detector, CO detector and water leak sensor. I activated the ADT service without issue however when I go to test the system through the app, it hangs and "Registering for Cellular Service". After speaking with ADT and Samsung multiple times, they state this was a "bug" but neither side would take ownership over it. This "bug" has continued for over a month now and after speaking with Samsung again last week, they stated it has resolved although some units are still affected. I went back to Best Buy and bought a second unit and after going through the steps, the new unit still hangs at "Registering for Cellular Service". Thus, I have given up. I really wanted to make this work. I even tried swapping the radios between the two units, power cycling multiple times and no dice. The device is useless without remote monitoring with ADT. The biggest problem is when there is a problem, neither Samsung or ADT will take ownership of the device. If you call Samsung first, they tell you to call ADT. If you call ADT, the majority of the reps aren't familiar with the device and takes multiple transfers to get to talk to someone who has at least heard about the device. I think Samsung released this product too soon without proper support of this item. If I wasn't using the ST hub for all my automation devices, I'd probably never buy Samsung again.

      The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. I've been wanting to install a security system in the house. I wanted to do it all myself and so being asked to review the Samsung - SmartThings ADT Home Security Starter Kit was perfect fr me because I could install everything in my own time. And it was so easy. I am very impressed with how quickly and easily I was able to set up the system and then install the monitors around the house. Pairing this system with an app and then using QR codes to scan each sensor made identifying and keeping track of everything simple. I just scanned the codes, installed the sensors and tested them. I even set up connection to ADT and was able to do all my testing in my own time. Using the ADT Security Hub is simple and intuitive. I was able to make any and all changes that I needed to without much use of the instructions. The app is excellent and I am looking for other SmartThings that I can add to it. I may actually have some other items in my home that I can add. There is a lot more for me to discover about the system but so far I like what it does.

      Biggest problem: Erroneous alarms. I have ADT's monitoring service add-on for this system ($35/month) and 2 months after installing it, I got a bunch of phone calls from ADT monitoring one day. They said all of the sensors (!?!) had been tripped and wanted to dispatch police. I checked my surveillance camera and didn't see anything unusual so opted to cancel the alarm, which kept going off and calling them all day. When I got home, I saw nothing suspicious and the control panel's alarm history didn't even log any problem or alarm condition. Software is clearly defective. Doesn't even show the correct time despite being wifi connected. Seriously?! Just replaced my hub unit today with a new one SmartThings sent, and setup was just as difficult as the first time. Devices/sensors are hard to pair. You'll find yourself following the setup steps exactly, multiple times, and resetting sensors a few times before they pair successfully. Keychain remote never pairs. Samsung support is also not 7 days a week and has limited hours, so if you live in PST you will have a hard time ever getting to talk to them unless you are at home during the day and not at work. Wish I never bothered with this thing and bought a different system.

      It has been really cool knowing everything is safe and secure around my house and also the Security Hub is pretty awesome having the Samsung + ADT Smart Home Security Starter Kit. I recently received the Samsung SmartThings Expansion Pack to review which includes even more SmartThings. The expansion pack adds leak detection, smoke detection and a carbon monoxide detector for even more protection! The new SmartThings were super easy to set up. Each one has a QR code that you scan with your phone and then you tell the app where in your house you are placing it. Very easy to do and you just add them one at a time to your Security Hub. I think the Samsung SmartThings Expansion Pack may have been easier to install than the Starter Kit actually. I was most excited about the Carbon Monoxide Alarm. I know thats weird to say I was excited but lets say its the thing I worry most about. We have a fireplace and I always just worry. That makes me happy knowing that they are all connected and we will get notified if anything happens. It also tells you where in the house the alarm is going off so if its just a battery or loose cable or something like that you will know exactly which smoke alarm it is blaring.With the devices set up in the app and the Security Hub I have everything connected at my fingertips. Its nice feeling secure in my home.

      Super Easy Smart Security for My Home

      I was a little worried about being able to set up and install the Samsung - SmartThings ADT Home Security Starter Kit, but we actually had it up and running in minutes. It's subtle - you don't even notice the motion sensor or door attachments. I like that the screen for settings is a nice size making it easy to use. The only catch we had was trying to line up perfectly the sensors for the doors - that did take a couple of tries but that could be on us - not the equipment. I had the SmartThings app on my phone and set up in minutes. The best part of that was I could check it and see when my door had been opened. This made it easier to tell when someone was home that was supposed to be. Overall it was pretty easy to set up, install, and use and I'm feeling better every time I hear the little voice let me know that "Zone 2" or whatever is open. I'm excited to see how many other smart things I can do for my home with the SmartThings App.

      The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. In 2013, while at work, burglers kicked in our backdoor and took all of our electronic devices as well as gifts under the Christmas tree. We've tried many alarm monitoring systems, but they were too complicated--and one even locked us in the house! The Samsung +ADT system is perfect. It's an easy-to-install security system for the house. My husband install our Samsung + ADT starter pack and thought it was so easy. It was up and running in very little time and the monitors around the house give us peace of mind. Pairing this system with the SmartThings app allows us to monitor our home while away, giving us peace of mind. Easy to follow instructions and the option to add ADT monitoring without a contract makes this a smart choice.
