Can tablets be used with new interface on old system?

I've been researching Konnected and like what I've seen. However, I really like the idea of a monitored system. I read about the new interface that allows you to monitor your zones in SmartThings without affecting the operation of your traditional wired security system. I also like the additional fuctionality of a full Konnected system. Will this interface allow the keypads to be replaced with tablets? Is there a way to have a Konnected system monitored, even if by a local mom & pop alarm company?
