    Alarm System Advice for Newbie

    Bizarrely we had a takeover recently where the customer was told by the Police that they were removing Police response from the company that they were with for telling people exactly that. The Police had contacted SSAIB and everything apparently. I personally would not rely on self monitoring, the amount of times a day I miss calls because I have left my phone in my car, office, workshop, store room. If I am in a meeting my phone is off, there are plenty of places I go where I have no signal. Much better to have a monitoring station dealing with my alarm problems

    And I connect mine to an ARC and the app is a free add-on, whereas the app is the selling point for you.

    But you can use it as GSM only though and only pay for gsm

    of course, but it costs twice as much as Wifi alone or GSM alone and so if you dont need dual path, and the Wifi drops out alot, and you cant be assed to fit a lan card and run a network, just fit GSM on it own

    Yeah been using it a while now, it drops out still but you can adjust the timer so it reports less dropouts

    It depends who you ask. My oppinion would be that most people install it because its easy and cheap in comparison to pro stuff

  13. Hi Hannah What fire panel is it? What sort of size system are we talking about? If its only a small system then its not a big problem until you need parts for it, and there are still one or two suppliers that supply closed protocol detectors etc depending on the brand. Bigger systems are more of a problem, we had a leisure centre with a closed protocol system that was a real pain. We were glad to lose that one when it came around for tender.
