I would also like it to include a PS4 if they are taking requests.

What is this the 80's?

Wireless systems work fine. If someone who's breaking into your home has wireless jammers and knows to cut your internet, you've got other problems and they'd be in and out before the cops would show up regardless of what security system you use.
If you put up sensors and they fall down, you're doing it wrong.
I have dogs(45 - 65 lbs) and I don't get false alerts on my PIR devices.

These sensors do not work on WiFi, In fact wireless technology came a long way since you installed alarms. Most hardware, DSC and other almost exclusively use wireless technology even in commercial and high value locations. Unlike cutting the old phone line these systems include LTE modem as backup to internet. You are right, sensors must be installed correctly with included screws. Reason old systems used 2 sensors to different boards is because they were unreliable and could not alert you on failed devices. These days you get alerts when battery is running low or sensors can't communicate.

When in used to install alarms I would never install wireless.lots of problems.if you stick sensors up they fall down.pir can't be used if you have pets
Also gives false readings if you don't place it right
You also need a sensor on every door and window
I put 2 bells outside it's a great deterant. Front and back high up..this works on wifi.they can cut your internet and also use wifi jammers to block signal

I can not tell you how happy I am with this system. Main reason for the purchase was a basement door that we could not tell if someone would come in or out because it was at the other end of the house. Installed this device and not only does it tell us when the door has been opened it also has a history of it. No more questioning the teenagers sneaking out.

The second reason I love it, it tells me when the internet has dropped and it is running on cell service. No extra charge for this. Last time it went offline for 5 hours. When it came back up, it let me know. ISP was doing some maintenance in the area.

One weekend we went to visit family in Chicago. Ended up spending the night. We didn't lockup the house for properly. Deadbolts and security doors blah blah blah. I recalled the RING alarm. Quickly pulled out the phone an activated the alarm.

The piece of mind is well worth the price. The only downside in my book is the lame siren alarm. it is rather weak but it does get your attention.

Can't wait to set this up with my new Blink XT cameras coming in today from the Amazon deal a few days ago.

The system is really stable, sensors connect easily and work all the time. Have to wait and see how long the batteries last. Now If only they would discount the doorbells.....

I rather get the one from Costco, exact same with 4 more sensors (those are $20 each). Costco once a while had it on sale for $200 like 2 months back.

good price, $10 better than the price at Fry's + the echo dot. Not as good as an expired deal for the 8 piece w/echo dot for $179, but pretty close.

As far as "needing" a sensor on every door and window, why? I put sensors on the doors and a motion detector near access points with windows. In fact, if they broke a window the sensor might still be there on the frame anyway...

If you pay for monitoring this system also has cellular backup (AT&T) so if they cut your power/internet it still has alarming capabilities.

I am pairing this with one of their smoke alarm listeners and getting a significant home owner's insurance discount; will pay for itself starting in a few years assuming they don't raise the price of $100 annual for monitoring.
