Notion is a great compliment to the security system already installed in your home. We like to think of security as a smaller subset of home awareness and Notion sensors provide a greater value over your current security system. Notion offers the mobile app as well as an all-in-one sensor that is capable of so much more than a standard security system. Notion sensors also don't require any complicated installation or set up and you do not have to pay any subscription fee to use your Notion sensors.
If you have a security system and you want to add Notion to your home, there are a few things 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.
