I have this. I don't like that the keypad, speaker/alarm, and brain are all in a portable pod. Step 1: Break into house. Step 2: Toss alarm in the sink/water/whatever Step 3: Carry on.

If I was a baddie breaking into a house I would use the 2 minutes I have before the alarm sounds to fill up a container with water, carry it over to the main device, and just flick it into the water. Done.

An alarm should be mounted. It's alarm separate. Regrettable purchase.

Really? Love ours, but you gotta consider your use case.

In your situation, you're looking for something to alert someone else when you're not home (I assume considering the 2 min time limit mentioned which can be adjusted) and tossing it in water will still do that with the cell monitoring service (killing the unit doesn't auto-send a monitored alarm cancel).

As for when at home (at night), we have ours set to 10 seconds - not enough time for ANYTHING other than panic (including the 2 times we set it off by mistake in the first year).

Bottom line, if you want a mid-range, semi-DIY and have the other Google products ecosystem, it's great. If you're looking for hardcore security, I agree, go with something professionally installed.

2 sensors are not enough, and these things are expensive! I'm sticking to my Smartthings.

Same w/ SimpliSafe I think. You'd have to know to bring a bucket of water but by that time you'd have been alerted and can see the person on your cameras - assuming you also have cameras. Also you're basically electricuting/ at that point.

Tbh I think a person would rather break into a house that doesn't have an alarm or exterior cameras at all. How would they know? Well, I think even a sign from like ADT, Brinks, Xfinity, SimpliSafe, etc helps

I had SS3 and replaced with Ring recently due to much lower monthly cost. Both of them works as expected for me. I like the ease of setup and looks of SS3 but for lower monthly cost, I'll take Ring. SS3 when ordered witt extra sensors comes per-configured and literally all you've to do is peel and stick, whereas Ring was a royal pain in the ass to get each sensor registered, I've about 20 sensors total including all types, extender etc.

Not sure what Nest would provide above SS3 & Ring, sensors on nest are expensive, so I went with SS3 and then RING.

I never had issues with customer service for either of the companies.

They wouldn't but I was able to price match it with Home Depot via chat. Still not sure if I would keep it since the sensors are expensive.
