We're considering switching to RHM for monitoring. We are currently using
Brinks Broadview ADT security, which requires a home phone line. Since we both have cell phones, it's 35 bucks wasted each month. If we could use Rogers, we could cancel the home phone and ADT, who I've never really liked anyways.
What I was wondering was, will the system use the old contact sensors, or do we have to fork out for all new ones? With three doors and 11 windows, it could get pricey really fast if we did.
This part i am not positive on, you would have to call rogers and check. (since i didnt have anything).
But my understanding on it, is that they will either use the existing sort of central connection thing (where all the sensors lead to).. and then they have another device which connects to it, and then talks to the rogers system.
There may be limiations as to WHAT specific things can/cant be connected.. (may work with device A, but not B)
Really all in all, its best to give them a call.
They may have different promtions on at different times as well. When i signed up (when it was pretty new mind you), you got $X of free equipment, etc. They may have something similar now as well.
My Rogers Home Monitoring system’s Touchpad recently went through a system update. When finished, my Weather App was nowhere to be found! I tried the Add Apps option in the Setup panel, but it was not there either. Is there somewhere I can download new Apps (or ‘old’ ones like my Weather App?) to my Touchpad??? Why would it disappear???
Thanks in advance.
Thank you for your post!
Rogers Smart Home Monitoring has recently had a software update to provide stability, improved design and features.
The previous “Weather/AccuWeather” app has been replaced with “TheWeatherChannel” app on your touchpad.
Take a look through your apps on your touchpad and let us know if you are able to locate it.
It’s there NOW, but it wasn’t there earlier when I was trying to find it.
Anyway, thanks for the speedy reply and help!
Now, if you can just explain WHY Rogers chose to start using plain dull grey icons for Settings and two other Apps...??? Looks terrible! Reminds me of Apple’s gawd awful iOS icons now! We have a beautiful bright colour screen, and instead of making the icons even MORE colourful, they flatten them out and ruin them! How drab!
Sorry about the venting...
