Great questions @Codewize! Our Alarm system is sold in a Kit, which our most basic Alarm Kit will feature a Base Station, Keypad, Motion Detector, Contact Sensor, and Range Extender. Once an Alarm Kit is obtained, we do have additional Contact Sensors and Motion Detectors that are sold separately, to grow your ‘Ring of security’. There are various ways to use the Alarm system to fit your needs, but there are also requirements and guidelines to ensure it is operated as intended.
You do not need to use your Keypad as the Alarm devices can be controlled through the app, however, if you plan on using armed mode features and professional monitoring, we recommend using every piece of the system to avoid false alarms and to ensure for efficient operation.
Also, keep in mind that our Alarm devices are designed for indoor use only. Feel free to ask any more questions you may have!
