I had never considered replacing my Omni with a Elk product. My primary goal was to physically separate security from HA. Thus, I have Qolsys as my security system and a few RPI's and Homeseer software doing all my HA tasks. IMHO, integrating security & HA on the same controller board such as the Omni/Elk would severely limit the innovation of that product. For example, an extensive HA upgrade would probably require the controller to go through an in depth recertification process to be UL Listed. IMHO, the Elk and Omni have not gone thru any extensive innovation updates in years because of this situation.vc1234 said:Since you have experience with Omni, you could probably comment on what functionality one would be missing in comparison to Elk/Omni ? Is there some rudimentary automation support ?
Thanks !BobS0327 said:By keeping my security and HA physically separated allows me to build a HA system that is not only flexible and robust but also allows me to experiment with new HA technologies.
