Home monitoring without subscription?

My subscription has expired and I can not afford to renew it. How can I set it up without renewing the subscription?

You can use the contact and motion sensors with the hub without a HMS subscription… You just will not have any access to or use for the monitoring tab since there is no professional monitoring. There is no self monitoring option. I don’t believe you will be able to use the Disarmed\Home\Away functions without a subscription. Someone here will be able to confirm that.

All the sensors will need to be set up for notifications on\off thru a rule so you get a push notification if any are opened while you are away. If you program several rules, you can use them for disarmed\home\away but you can’t assign on duty and off duty without the monitoring tab.


@SlabSlayer is correct about using the HMS system without a subscription. You lose all the settings available in the monitoring tab (home, away, disarmed, “Tunes” for the sensors, etc.) You can, as @SlabSlayer pointed out, use the sensors for automations in rules and for notifications. It’s just more complicated and you need to use rules and shortcuts to make it work. Also, no siren/alarm from the hub.


thanks folks! I’ll just put it on ebay for sale.

Post it in the Watercooler area as for sale and list the sensors that are with it. You might find a Wyze user who wants a second hub or someone looking to break into monitoring. (Not literally)
