Has anyone come up with a Health Check for Konnected from ST? Building out a 24 zone system and concerned if Konnected stops reporting to ST, not sure how I would know. Is there a simple setup I am missing?
Pardon our dust while we're improving our support platform.

Haven't tried it yet, but found this as a possible solution:
The idea would be to set up a IP-based precense device for the panel. If the panel's IP address doesn't show as online, you could at least see there is a problem. This solution requires another computer or device to handle api calls.. which I'm not crazy about. But I haven't seen anything else that would work.
There are a couple ways you could do this if you're using Home Assistant (I'm not sure about SmartThings). I set up a binary sensor that pings the IP address of the Konnected panel every 30 seconds. As soon as the sensor shows offline (or "off") it triggers an automation which sends a notification to my phone as well as toggles off the switch that the Konnected power supply is plugged into, and then toggles it back on.
Or if you're using the PoE version and Unifi network products, through the Unifi integration you can toggle the PoE ort to accomplish the same thing.
Here's my entry in the config.yaml file for the binary sensor:
- platform: ping
In my opinion, something like this is a must. For some reason my alarm goes down frequently. Every few days or so.
