What security system should I use if i want connect it to HC3




I have connected the DCS alarm system at the moment, but I saw that it doesn't fit my wishes, so I would like to change this alarm system.


Let's overview my requirements for the security:

1. Windows / Doors -  open, close detection

2. Motion sensors in the rooms

3. Need outdoor cameras to record any movement and write it to "somewhere"

4. Opportunity to view the live stream of the cameras


At the Fibaro what I would like to have:

1. Alarm / Disarm button of the whole alarm system

2. Need to have access to view "live" videos

3. Need to access recorded video

I don't know how much these tasks can be punt under fibaro home center, but I need your help plan these steps.


Any advice is welcome

    I use Hikvision DS-2CD2185FWD-I domes. 


    But several types will work.

    Live images I can view with the Fibaro app. I record images on a separate Hikvision NVR. I use motion detectors, doorbell and door sensors to trigger the cameras to send images by mail.

    Why do you need a separate alarm system as you can do all you require with Fibaro/Zwave devices ?


    (except the showing of video recording)

    Just a heads up – I found the Smart Home Forum by FIBARO super helpful. Registering was easy, and there's a wealth of information about smart home systems. You can start discussions, follow interesting topics, and even connect with others. However, I am thinking of switching to Vivint home security, as they have more functions. What about you, guys?
