After a year and a half with ADC I’ve been looking with envy at many of the Nest products and am thinking of switching. In general everything looks more polished and better fitted for my needs – especially around details like having the doorbell camera automatically open on a Google Home Hub when the button is pressed, being able to cast video cameras to my TVs, being able to use all of the sensors and devices to manage home and away modes better, and better integration with Google Assistant. And I think that having IFTTT integration would open up a lot of possibilities I don’t have now.
Right now I have a GC3 with door/window/motion sensors, T2000 thermostat, Skybell HD, V721W outdoor camera, Z-wave door locks, ADC smoke/heat/freeze sensors, and Caseta and Z-wave lights. I also have Nest Protect which was in the house when I bought it, and I’ve been impressed with it so far.
I just ordered a Nest thermostat and indoor camera to dip my toe further into the water. I’ll tie the thermostat into ADC at first but am seriously considering moving everything over to a Nest Secure, Nest Hello, a Nest door lock, and more Nest Protects and cameras.
Has anyone else made the switch from ADC to Nest and ended up regretting it? Is there something I might miss about ADC that I might be overlooking? Has anyone gone from Nest to ADC and been happier with ADC?
