How do you activate self-monitoring only on the app.

Hi, when you go into set up system on the app it only allows you to continue if you select one of the two monitoring plans. How do you set it up for self-monitoring? Thanks Bob

If you are in the UK you cannot receive app alerts or turn alarm on and off from the app without Pro monitoring. 

It is a complete farce. In the US they do enable self monitoring without a plan but not in the UK.

Is this still true for the UK - i.e. we don't get any app alerts without Pro monitoring? It's essential to be able to manage the system remotely - that's the only time you'd really want to have it active!

@bobmccalden​ No, this is no longer true. All of the UK's monitoring plans offer push notifications; even if you are not subscribed to a plan you will still receive push notifications for your system.
