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 or maybe on the gate
We'll see how this works.
