We've currently got a Bosch ICP-CC408 with a number of sensors/smoke sensor. It's monitored by a local alarm company. We're switching to fibre soon and the cost to have it adapted to work with GSM is $300. I'm thinking of using this opportunity to either upgrade or replace the system with cameras etc and Internet-based monitoring. I'm considering Morepork but would like to consider other options that may suit.

I've got a Paradox (SP6000).  Bought because of the IP module.  But I find paradox so backwards in regards to this.  They have a closed SDK that when you ask them for it, they say it's not for end users (WTF?!?!!?).  But if you can get your hands on it (like I have) it's pretty basic, but does the job.  I have mine integrated into openhab (via mqtt).  And there's another chap that has a python script which does the same.


They also have an ios app, but looking to move to another one, and they really don't like talking to end users, only distributors.


I've not had any experience with any other manufacturers (apart from a Micron Scorpion, but I never had an ip module for that).
