Yes,there,is,also a updated router, I just received one after what will be 2 years of connectivity problems. I am satisfied was router whole time. The new router looks like the new router. Seems to not be dropping camera connections like old one.

Re: Rogers Smart Home Monitoring

Hi Guys,

I recently switched to Rogers from ADT, evetrythign working well, except i really miss a feature i had with ADT and that is Quick Arm. 

With ADT, on the keypad, I did NOT need to enter the password before ARMING the system, it was #Stay, or #Away and done. 

Anyway to do this on Rogers? I really dont see the logic in entering the code to ARM the system!

 

Cheers,

Hello @wwefaasdf4

Unfortunately there is no other way. This is a security feature in order to arm the house it needs a pin or password to do so. I find it better then without one to be honest. I know it takes a second to do the pin but it's for ur own security.

Thank you for the reply, its not a big deal, but can you please let me know what is the logic behind "this is for my own security" how is my security in any danger if someone "ARMS" the system?

 

Thank you,

Hello @wwefaasdf4

From what i can tell, no one can get into your system when they are in the ur home or trying to hack it without the pass code. It seems to be a security feature they added for extra precaution n my own opinion I rather have a pass code when arming or disarming the alarm instead of nothing at all.

Even my store has a pass code in order to disarm the alarm or any doors and such. We use Alarm Force

Again it depend on each person but maybe Rogers with All state think it's a better idea. I like it.

Re: Rogers Smart Home Monitoring

I think the only semi quick way to arm/disarm one press is via the keyfob?

(even the 2nd button pannel had the # keypad and i think is required)

Hello @Gdkitty

While that is true, its also a $49.99 charge ontop. So if u need to buy two or more, its going to be costly.

I rather have the Pin number and do it that way.

Re: Rogers Smart Home Monitoring

Very true.  
Was just saying, if the user wanted to have that convieneince, they COULD.  But yeah, would be a cost involved.


I find I am rarely having to arm/disarm mine now, since i set up the RULES with the smartlock Smiley Very Happy
Certian times of the day.. when we LOCK the door, it auto arms the system.
Any time we unlock the door.. it un arms the system, etc.

VERY handy.. and much easier with my son.  Can unlock the door from the phone while getting out of the car, and he can go and open the door and not have to worry about the alarm, etc.

Hello @Gdkitty

That is great to hear! I only have the camera and sensors from Rogers but maybe one day I'll get the door lock system. All depends!.
