How Many Zones Do I Need?
There’s a quick way to learn how many zones you need for Konnected Interface Kits:
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).
Alarm Panel Pro Features
- Ethernet connectivity & PoE
- ESP32 microcontroller with integrated Wi-Fi
- 5V output & 3.3V triggers
- 12V AUX output & two alarm outputs
- 12 zones
- Expansions ports for interface module(s)
- USB port
- RF shield
- 12V input
Keep Your Keypads
The Interface Kit allows you to keep the home security routine you love while enjoying top-of-the-line smart home automations.
This is the perfect way to ease yourself into the world of modern home monitoring. It’s also great for everyone in your household that might be reluctant to try out new things and might need some additional time to get acquainted with smart alarms. With Konnected, there’s no rush and everyone can feel comfortable!

What Konnected Users Are Saying
“My experience with the store & setting up the Konnected panel was really easy to accomplish! Plan to purchase more & add-on's!”
"The instructions and videos guide you through the connections to the alarm panel, setting up the Konnected app, and then getting it into the SmartThings app. Worked right away out of the box."
"OMG, this piece of kit is outstanding and works seamlessly. It kinda pays for itself too because I've made some of my Smart Motion Sensors redundant and then sold them on eBay."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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 count 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.
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.
If you'd like to keep using your existing keypad, make sure to purchase one of our Interface Kits (instead of the Conversion Kit). Interface Kits allow you to keep the functionality of your traditional keypad, while adding the all-new smart home possibilities controlled from your phone, tablet or computer. If you want to stop using your keypad and monitor your home only with smart home platforms, choose any of the Conversion Kits. No matter your requirements, Konnected has a solution for you.

Wonderful! Just what I’ve been looking for!
Fantastic, the real issue I incurred were all user error. Of which I spent a good amount of time kicking myself. Outside of that. This works exactly as advertised.
Great for those that really like home automation but it will never be mainstream
Documentation was seriously lacking, especially when it came to connecting to the New SmartThings app. It's not exactly plug-and-play which means this product will never hit the mass market. It's a great idea, to be able to monitor your own home without a monthly cost but for this to be mainstream, it's going to take a lot of refinement, documentation, wiring diagrams, etc. I did find that with the VISTA-20 panel, I couldn't reset an alert cleanly remotely. Once an Alarm is triggered, the alert stays lit until cleared. Well, Konnected can arm, stay, and disarm remotely. But you don't always know the state of the alarm. Overall, it's ok. Not sure the price was worth the cost of just swapping the whole system. I think most wired alarm systems of the past will eventually be completely wireless systems utilizing wireless sensors.
Seems like a good product but I have yet to figure out how to set it up or if I even have the right solution for my nerds.
Please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org - we would be glad to help you set it up.
Konnected Wrong Product
Wrong Product Ordered Based on Recommendation of Konnected personnel. I had to de-install Konnected board & re-install original alarm board, which I have not been able to finish as of today. Have not decided about returning Konnected board.
This works Great Thanks for the information. It’s up and running. I will be ordering more sensors soon. Thanks for a great product
