Solved

After much research here I think I have confirmed that this will work with my existing hardwired sensors after being integrated with the Konnected panel. However, I also reached out to Samsung ST, and they said those existing hardwired sensors will not be monitored when the alarm is on. Is this true and correct? I would hate to go through all the trouble installing the Konnected panel for it not to work. Any help you guys could provide would be awesome and a huge time saver. Thank you.

  • Hi Joel


    It shows your problem as resolved.  Would you mind sharing with me what solution you found.  I have the SmartThings ADT Security Hub and have hooked up the Konnected alarm to my hardwired sensors.  I am able to see the sensors within my SmartThings App but am not able to figure out a way to actually use them with the alarm panel.  Thank you.

  • This is a restriction imposed by ADT. Unfortunately, the SmartThings/ADT panel will only allow ADT sensors to be used for security. You can still connect your wired sensors to it with Konnected, but these sensors will only be available for automation (i.e. turning on lights, door chime notifications, etc) and not security. The SmartThings/ADT panel uses a modified version of Smart Home Monitor that will only allow you to select ADT sensors for security.

    They'll tell you that this is for your security and reliability -- but it's really just a ploy to lock you in to buying and continuing to pay for their equipment and service.

    For this reason, we recommend using the standalone SmartThings hub, which does not have such restrictions.
