Sheldon has bought a SmartThings security system and wants to know if he can incorporate a keypad to disarm the alarm, rather than using a mobile device. The chatroom says that the ADT Security Hub will work, but Rich says that's an expensive option that requires monthly monitoring. SmartThings has other options to consider here, though.
home security systems
Karen has had breakins in her area lately and wants to get a security system for not only her home, but also looking out to the street. Leo says she has two choices - one to record locally, and one that records to the Cloud. Leo says that the Cloud option, which is done by DropCam, enables her to access her feed from the internet and she can easily go back in time. They're all driven by Wi-Fi and Leo used to use them at the Brickhouse all the time. DropCam is a Google owned company.
