This system is very easily hacked using a replay attack. Someone listens to the radio signal when you type in your disarm PIN and bam, they can disarm it any time by replaying the signal. If they want, they can even re-arm the system when they leave and you would be none the wiser. The company has pretty much said they don't care, which for a security company is pretty alarming.

Really? Alarming?

While this may be true, what are the odds of that happening?
Do you think a random high school educated/dropout crime of opportunity burglar will be smart or resourceful enough to do what you're describing? If your home attracts sophisticated burglars like that, you should not be doing DIY home security.

I would be alerted on my cell phone that the system has been disarmed... that would make me the wiser.

This is a very basic alarm system and not worth $270.00. As turtleisland2000 has pointed out, Simply Safe can be easily hacked. Some local Walmarts have this unit on clearance for $100 or so, depends on the store. There are better choices out there.

Yep, every time simplisafe is posted, people bring up the vulnerability. While the companies attitude is concerning, the reality is it's probably not likely to effect anyone. If you have the means and knowledge of how to build the system you probably make more than the people's houses you are breaking into, since they bought a budget alarm system...

I ended up going for a different alarm system anyway, but I just don't get why people think some high tech criminal is going to break into their house.

That was my thought too. I ended up getting this previously and some cameras. Between the two one will alert that someone has gone into our place. I'm fairly confident the guys who broke in before I had this or the cameras weren't computer engineers.

So rather than pay ADT $50 a month, is there a better choice in DIY alarm systems that are reliable? Do any of these actually call the police for you or just send you an alert if your alarm is activated and then I have to notify the police?
