My first post.
Thank you for your patience and understanding
I’m planning to build a home security system using Homey, replacing my proprietary Verisure setup.
I’ll share my plans with you guys shortly, but first a few questions. And yes, I have browsed the forum looking for answers before I posted this.
Homey as the only hub
I plan to use various sensors and cameras. I see that Heimdall does not support all Xiaomi devices I’d like to use, or the support seems to be spotty, judging from the various reports on the forum.
Anyone out here running Xiaomi devices smoothly with Homey as the only hub? If so, what motion and glass breakage sensors do you use?
I have read that there are issues with the Xiaomi Hubs, EU vs Chinese versions in order to connect and enable dev mode on the EU versions. Assuming I need a hub or would like to use one, can someone confirm or deny that latest EU / Chinese versions are usable (I live in Norway).
I have the whole house and outside covered with Ring devices today. I’m sick and tired of the lack of access to configure. The lack of smarter motion sensing and facial recognition. Planning to exchange my door bell as well as indoor and outside cameras. Any recommendations?
Door bell - need motion detection and facial recognition
Indoor - motion detection, night mode, usb + battery
Outdoor - motion detection, night mode, wide angle, usb
I already have Heimdall set up in test mode and I’m triggering my own small fake alarms (push messages) for various conditions. Seems promising. But now I need to make my hardware selections.
Thanks in advanced
