HOW MANY ZONES DO I NEED FOR AN INTERFACE KIT?
- In your traditional alarm system, the zones are most likely listed by the keypad or inside of the alarm system box (the one with all the wires). Count and note them down.
- Our Interface Kits require 2 more zones than your original alarm panel. E.g., if your traditional alarm panel has 10 zones, you’ll need 12 zones for Konnected. The 2 additional zones are responsible for monitoring 2 outputs (armed/disarmed indicator & alarm/idle indicator). Voila!

HOW MANY ZONES DO I NEED?
A zone in the context of alarm systems refers to a sensor or a group of sensors. Each zone in your system will show up in your smart home app as an individual device that you can name. For example, a single door sensor wired to a zone may be named "Front Door". You may also have a group of windows wired together on one zone and call it "Downstairs Windows". A good place to start is by looking at your existing alarm system and counting the number of zones. Often the keypad from your old system will have a zone listing either handwritten on a label or programmed into the display. For Interface Kits require 2 more zones than your traditional alarm panel additional zones. E.g., if your traditional alarm panel consists of 10 zones, you'll need 12 zones for the Konnected Interface to work. The additional 2 zones are used for monitoring 2 outputs, typically an armed/disarmed indicator, and an alarm/idle indicator. Learn more here.
What is the difference between conversion and interface?
Conversion kits work as a replacement to your traditional alarm panel or an addition to your new-pre wired home. Interface kits allow you to keep the traditional alarm panel and add smart home functionality to it.
DOES IT WORK WITH MY EXISTING ALARM SYSTEM?
Yes, Konnected Interface works in parallel with most traditional alarm systems - Honeywell, Ademco, DSC, and many more. With Konnected Interface, you can also keep the full functionality of your keypad as well as any monitoring you currently subscribe to.
