alarm systems for homes

safety alarm system

83. Slowly, one by one, all the sensors failed. I'm waiting for them to come out again a 4 hour time range. And now I'm getting phone calls from the "manager" from India wanting me to change all the batteries in the sensors to see if that's the trouble before the tech comes out to re program everything a 3rd time. I cussed him out and dared him to call me again. I want my money back!DO NOT GET THIS SYSTEM!Completely unreliable security system and the mobile app sucks. I travel for work on a weekly basis and thought having a home security system will allow me to monitor my condo. Every time when I'm away, I always get this communication failure alert triggered by the door or window sensor. The first time I received the text alert, I thought someone break into my condo because the text doesn't say it's a communication failure. Instead it says alarm has been triggered and the security center has been notified. I was waiting for someone to contact me but it never happened.

During this time, we've honed our testing process to look at over 100 distinct factors to determine how well a system works. Each time we update our reviews, we also update our scores based on how customers currently perceive the products. We do this by extensively researching user reviews at retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Home Depot and Lowe's. When we test, we borrow some of the DIY security systems from their manufacturers and buy others.
