I’ve seen a few others tear apart the sensor and realized there might be an opportunity to integrate my old hard wired security system along with Wyze Sensors without tearing apart my hard wired system.
I know there is a system out there called Konnected that essentially does the same thing but that would mean another app and it appears the need for a smart things hub if I wanted to automate cameras, plugs, lights, etc, (plus the cost appears higher for my 8 zones)
Using the wires from my door and window sensors terminated inside the security panel, I could wire in a Wyze sensor for each zone to be tripped between open and close based on the status of the wired sensor. Rather than than magnet tripping the Wyze sensor reed switch, the Wyze sensor reed switch circuit would be completed or broken based on the wired sensor of my existing security system. This would also allow my to keep my existing system in place but add remote monitoring and automation through Wyze and IFTTT.
I think this would work and would only require $40 in sensors to monitor my 8 door sensors giving me automation with Wyze plus all the features of the Wyze app.
Any one else try something like this? Any thoughts or things I might be missing?
