Are there plans to reduce the price of the retrofit kit to make it competitive with your other devices?
If the current price of the retrofit kit is $200 and can support up to 8 existing devices, isn’t it more cost effective to just purchase 8 ring sensors which would cost less and not require a skilled install?
The retrofit kit supports 8 zones, not just 8 devices. My house was already wired with contact sensors in all the windows and doors, coincidentally divided up into 8 zones (multiple windows grouped into one zone). When I initially installed my ring alarm, it came with enough wireless contact sensors to cover my doors and 2 windows. That left me with 22 windows that were unmonitored unless I wanted to buy 22 sensors or just depend on the motion sensors.
With the retrofit kit, I am able to wire the existing zones into it and cover everything without having to buy new sensors. So for me, it's much more cost effective.
