When we bought out house 2 yrs ago it had an alarm system already installed. And when we were given the licensing papers we seen that it was almost time to renew to continue receiving service for the monitoring of this system. So my husband and I started a search to get a deal on monitoring for out home.
We ending deciding on Apx home security systems this company was fairly new to our area at the time. They came to my house and installed all the sensors and motion detectors throughout. It was all free to install and set up. The main system is connected most security systems which is to the phone line, but this system also runs on cellular backup, so if for any reason our phone lines get cut or are down we are still connected to and still being monitored. It also has two voice system for live communication to the security company at all times talking through the main system from anywhere in our house. It has quick one touch buttons to all emergency response system like fire, police and medical services. This system can be set to be on and monitoring while in the stay mode or away mode, the stay mode allows the system to operate but with out the laser motions detectors through out the house, this way you can still have movement inside the house without setting of the system, the away mode has all the detectors on and working, so any movement inside the house will also set the alarm off.
One of the features I like the best with this Honeywell system is the door chime, whatever door gets opened in my house I hear a little chime then a voice says "front door, side door, back door" This feature is great if you have small children in your house and if by chance they happen to open a door to get outside.
This system also came with 2 four button wireless keys, which have come in so handy, we are able to turn off the alarm before opening our door so save on the rush of having to push in the code to disable the alarm.
This is a great system to assure you that your home is safe while home or away.
All instruction on how to use the product are in a written manual or you can have them verbally step by step from the main system.
We have been using this system for 2 yrs now and have never had a false alarm, or any other problem.
