I bought a SimpliSafe home security system and got the monitoring service. I got the base station, a couple motion detectors, several entry sensors, panic button, siren, key chain remotes and keypad They also sell the freeze alarm, water sensor (for flooding - i.e. broken water heater), fire and carbon monoxide alarms. Soon they claim they will add remote video cameras. I like this one because it's wireless and I can manage my settings online or from my Android.
It took about 30 minutes to set up and get linked up. I have a 72 hour period that runs in test mode before it goes "live" on the monitorung service. So far I have been testing and I get alerts from all my sensors and my ear-piercing alarms work. For the price I can't complain. I spent about $330 for a refurbished unit from the SimpliSafe site online. I may add a couple more entry sensors for a couple of gun safes.
The USPS delivered everything yesterday. For some reason I thought it would be a bigger box.
Keychain remotes and Motion Detector
Entry Sensor and Panic Button
Keypad and Base Station
Security Sign for the Cabin
We'll see how this works.
