Re: IMPORTANT! AlertMe and British Gas Server Shutdown

Oh wow, that's considerably worse than I was expecting! And I guess a hard reset of the hub is pointless as it won't be able to load the configuration?

Re: IMPORTANT! AlertMe and British Gas Server Shutdown

Just out of interest - What's the expected behaviour of S&S 'locally', now that the plug has been pulled? I was under the impression that you'd still be able to arm/disarm, but 24hrs after posting the above the key fobs have stopped working (no noise on any of the fobs and no interaction with the hu...

Re: IMPORTANT! AlertMe and British Gas Server Shutdown

And...it's gone! Alerty's showing the expected 'no response' message as of today (4DEC) and the Web UI for S&S is saying it's closed. Good luck to anyone home brewing their own solution - and thanks for Alerty!

Re: What other security/ alarm systems are you considering?

Ha, interesting. Thanks. He sounds like a good contact to have! I guess if you have a load of unused devices (key fobs, sensors, etc) it would be worth adding them to the system now - as there won't be any UI to do it once they close everything off. I'll post back here once I've decided what to do.....

Re: What other security/ alarm systems are you considering?

The Nest system does look pretty good. And yes, agree that Hive is far from optimal for security right now. One thing I’m considering is just leaving the safe and secure system until the market develops in the UK and these other systems start to become available. However - I’m still not clear what w...

What other security/ alarm systems are you considering?

Thanks for Alerty! I am (/was) a Safe and Secure customer and Alerty has effectively extended the life of my alarm by a couple of years. I always thought that the safe and secure system was pretty much what a DIY alarm setup would look like if Apple did one - easy to install, solid platform, ‘just w...

Re: The Alerty App

DOH! Yes, that worked fine - thanks. Yeah, a timeout would maybe help. This is fantastic - breathes life into a system that I thought was dead and gone! Great stuff. I'd heard a rumour that BG were rolling in a relaunch of safe and secure into Hive - are you aware of anything along those lines? Chee...

Re: The Alerty App

Hi, Over the moon to find an app that supports the BG safe and secure system! I've bought Alerty, but when i open it, it just freezes. The message 'Head over to the details tab...' is shown, but touching there (or anywhere on the screen) doesn't do anything. I'm on an iPhone 5S, running iOS 8.0. Any...
