There are no stupid questions. I mean, I suppose if there is a question about cheese manufacturing, we wouldn’t be able to answer. But as far as related questions go, if you need something answered please feel free to ask!
For ADC, do I HAVE to buy the ADC version of the Skybell HD satin?
No. The Skybell HD can be purchased from any vendor and can be used with ADC. There may be a possibility of newest firmware on a Skybell HD which is not officially supported yet breaking a feature, but we haven’t seen that yet.
The Skybell Slim Line ADC version is on the other hand only ADC compatible and versions other than the HD and the Slim Line ADC are not compatible.
Either way, do you know where I can buy one at a reasonable price?
We sell the ADC branded HD model here. HD models can be found from a variety of vendors, likely on Amazon as well.
I saw you have this item in stock on your website, although this is higher than my current security providers price, could I buy it as a non-customer?
You can purchase equipment from suretyDIY even if you do not use Alarm.com service through us and you can use equipment from other vendors with our service.
There are no obligations regarding equipment, just that it is compatible. We recommend purchasing new communication modules rather than used for the panel models with modular cell cards, and we recommend buying them from us because we can guarantee they are unregistered and new.
Should I be buying this? (is there a better Skybell?, Lots of issues? Things I should know?)
There have been some battery concerns with some of the Skybell HD units. The battery has been reported in cases to swell over time, necessitating replacement of the battery. I don’t recall the same reports regarding the Slim Line version.
Anyone have a “next level” ideas for automation? I have tapped out the triggers from lights and door sensors and even put a Sensor Group 25 door sensor on my bedroom for various triggers. Just curious about other good ideas.

Options expand at a steady clip with new services available under ADC. There are recent inclusions of Irrigation Control, Legrand Home Audio, etc., which are included with suretyDIY Gold Interactive service.
Scenes through ADC allow you to group many disparate actions together and control them all via a single action. Even better you can assign them to home screen widgets on your smartphone for easy access.
I want to put a 10′ Sub-woofer on a Leviton appliance on/off module. I have a few outdoor modules for higher wattage coming but the Leviton is my preference. Do we think this would work?
We would need more details in this case. What model of subwoofer? What is the model number of the appliance module?
I assume there wouldn’t be an issue, I can’t imagine an appliance module is rated for less than 15Amp
