What happens if The power or wifi is cut and you don’t have a SIM card
Are u notified still ?
Also are the live video feeds stored anywhere and for how long ?
Hanna, Coventry
If the power and WiFi is cut, The alarm will still function as it has a back up battery built inside the HUB. You will not receive notifications until a WiFi connection has been re-established. The live video feeds for the camera are stored using an SD card.

How do you arm/disarm the alarm if there is no power? Does the key fob still work or does it require your router to be switched on?
Stu
The alarm has a back up battery installed so if there is a power cut it will revert to this. The keyfob will still work in this instance and would not require the router.

Does the door monitor equipment have to be flush, when the door is closed. Only most doors these days are not flush to the frame also does the system work with Android.
Matthew Davies, Caerphilly
I would advise on on having the Door contacts as flush as possible, no more than 1-2MM distance between both components. This System is compatible with IOS 9.0 and above and Android 4.1 and above.

Would it be feasible to operate the Veho alarm solely with the sim card as we have no fixed wifi. If yes should the alarm activate whilst we are away can it be reset via the sms system. If not feasible can you recommend any other options.

Yes the alarm can be operated via the SIM card for notifications, however you will need wifi or data connection to be able to use the app on your phone to operate the alarm.
