Live Watch to Xfinity Security Questions

I've been debating on make a switch because of bundled promotions that included Home Security. But I have several questions:

  • My set-up currently is I have z-wave devices (lights and doorlocks) connected to my panel (IQ Panel). Will the control panel provided by Xfinity be able to controle those devices as well? 
  • The control panel (Livewatch service) is linked with Alarm.com where I can download the app to my phone (android) and control my devices. I can also create automation rules via Alarm.com. 
  • I have several door sensors and motion sensors already in place, will those be re-used or will I need to pay for new sensors? 

Thanks for any assistance on this.

I have found that XHome Services is great (I just got off the phone about a camera issue).

Xfinity uses Zigbee which is not compatable with your Z-wave devices.
