Is Notion A Security System?
Not exactly. We like to say that home security is a subset of home awareness. Notion sensors can certainly tell you if a door opens or a window breaks but they’re also much more versatile. Security needs vary drastically from home to home and we encourage everyone to design and implement a solution that meets their needs.
Can I Install Notion Alongside My Existing Security System?
Notion is a great compliment to the security system already installed in your home. Notion offers the mobile app as well as our versatile all-in-one sensor. There is no complicated installation or set up process and you don't have to pay any subscription fee to use your Notion sensors.
A Few Considerations
If you have a security system and you want to add Notion to your home, there are a few limitations to consider:
- Door sensors from security systems employ magnets to determine when a door is open or closed. Make sure you install your Notion sensor at least 24 inches away from your security door sensor so the magnet does not affect the Notion sensor.
- Notion sensors are optimized to listen only for smoke alarm beeps. If you hope to use Notion to detect the beeps from your security system panel we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the sensor in this context.
