I think you are incorrect with the Simply Safe notifications. (Maybe you can verify) It’s one of the reason I’m not going that direction. I think you MUST have the monitoring purchased to be able to get any notifications to your phone. That is, if you have a break-in w/o monitoring, the alarm will go off, but you won’t know until you get home. One of those “that’s how they get you” things with SS…

I have a “google home”, so I am strongly considering the Nest…but I agree with your evaluations on the limited features. Suppose I could have my Nest Thermo, Lock and doorbell, and still have a Ring alarm system…will research it more. Thanks for your video.
