What do I need to use the Konnected Alarm Panel?

Konnected is an open source solution for connecting wired sensors and switches to home automation hubs including Samsung SmartThings, Home Assistant, Hubitat and OpenHAB.

Konnected Alarm Panel

Our flagship product that we launched on Kickstarter in 2017 is the the Konnected Alarm Panel, a modern replacement for common wired security system panels such as Honeywell, Ademco, DSC, Brinx, and all other hardwired systems. Konnected hardware connects directly to your home's wired door & window sensors, motion sensors, other sensors and siren and integrates them seamlessly with your other smart home devices. Now you can monitor your home from anywhere without any monthly fees and use all of your home's existing wired sensors for home automation.

What you need to use Konnected

  • A supported smart home hub.

Konnected is not a standalone app! You need to use a compatible smart home hub to make Konnected useful. Konnected now integrates with four different smart home platforms.

The Samsung SmartThings hub (3rd generation) retails for about $70 and comes with a iOS and Android app. The SmartThings Hub (2nd generation) works, too. So does the line of Samsung WiFi products.

  • Wired alarm system sensors

The Konnected Alarm Panel replaces your old wired alarm system motherboard (if you have one). Check to make sure that your system is wired, you should see a bunch of wires coming out of the wall in your alarm panel cabinet, one for each sensor in your home. Konnected replaces almost all wired alarm systems regardless of the manufacturer or brand!

These are examples of old wired alarm system panels that you'll be replacing with the Konnected Alarm Panel. Look for it in a closet, laundry room, or garage.

Pre-wired but no alarm system installed? That's ok!

If your home is pre-wired for an alarm system but no panel was installed yet, you may see a big bundle of wires sticking out of a wall. This is ok! Konnected connects directly to the wired sensors, so you do not need an existing panel.

  • Reliable Wifi

Konnected uses your home WiFi network (2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n only) to communicate with your smart home hub. It works in any country!
