Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pvvp Great basic system
This system is a great basic one. Probably by itself would work for an apartment dweller. But for us, even with a small home, we ended up buying 4 additional window/door sensors. Also, since police say noise is the best deterrant, we ended up ordering an outdoor alarm from the manufacturer since you can't really hear the indoor one outside if you are not right by the house/door/window. All these extras definately increase the cost. Basically easy to install, but you really have to read the instructions carefully before you start all the programming. Additional pieces are easier to program in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fred This alarm has great features and is easy to install.
Love this alarm, easy to install, has a remote arm/disarm feature and calls your cell phone when you're not home. and you can add more sensors as you see fit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CKelly Good Alarm System if you don't want to spend a lot.
Decent priced alarm system for those who don't want to get involved with a service. A little cumbersome to set up, it does work and is a cheaper alternative to paying for a service. It does call your cell phone and did work well.

Easy to install and seems to work fine. Internal alarm/siren is not very loud so I ended up buying an additional siren. The real test will be how does it hold up over the years. I would prefer that the siren sounded for more than 30 seconds at a time..

Easy to Install. NO monthly monitoring charges. It calls my Cell-Phone when alarm is triggered. The only complaint I have is when the Battery is low on the wireless sensors it sets the alarm off and you can't disarm it over the phone like it says you can. It calls every 5 min. Fills up your voice mail until you get to the location and disarm/replace batteries. A low battery should give an error of Low Battery, not set the alarm off. Other than that it works great and it's worth the money. I've had expensive monitored alarms in the past. I am sticking with this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Benito Works really well.
Set up was pretty easy to follow. If you do have any problems, the manufactor has a number to call and they can help you.

After reading the other reviews on line prior to purchasing, I ordered this for my widowed mother-in-laws house and the installation was a snap. It has been installed for a couple of weeks now and I haven't had a single false alarm. The ability to have the alarm dial my cell phone (or any other phone number) is a huge advantage over monitored systems that have monthly charges. The addition of the remote makes it much easier for her to arm and disarm the alarm and the panic button on both the remote and the wall unit are also good features.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jayge A very good product especially for the price
The system is working very well except for the keychain
Remote Control which only works some of the time. I am currently waiting to hear from Mace Company about this problem. For the time being, I have to set and turn off the system at the main unit. This is Mace Wireless Home Security System part 80356 of which the memote is supplied with it.
They should have had the two wires coming out from the bottom so it could be wall mounted more attractively. They are currently coming from the top of the unit.
