Hey guys,
I need to add a home alarm system to our newly purchased house.
For now, it will be unmonitored but I wouldn't mind being able to have it monitored in the future. I'm a traveler. I would like to explore new places.
So, I need to ensure the safety of my home while I'm out.
I searched a lot and found a few service providers offering alarm systems. Please do share your recommendations based on experience that you all may have.

Thanks in advance!

I had installed a DSC PC1832 along with 15 wireless window sensors, 4 wireless door, three keypads, 5 wireless motions, two wireless smoke alarms, 1 wireless water alarm. Installed all my self, it calls my cell and my wife's cell upon beech...but we could have it monitored if desired. In 8 YEARS it has been 100% trouble free. I replaced all batteries once. It is a quality product. I installed a Ring system for my mother, it is not bad, but I do have to go up to her place fairly often to address an issue with the system. I wish I would have installed a DSC there too...upfront install time would have saved me in the long run. I think any of the cheap stick up systems will come with their fair share of maintenance and repair...but DSC is Rock solid. Don't have the time to do it yourself with DSC, find a company that uses their equipment, then you can always "tweak it" or enhance it yourself if you desire.

Good luck with your system!

The Ring Alarm system is basic, and lacks the integration with other home automation devices. Though, it includes a base station, a keypad, a motion detector, a contact sensor for doors or windows and a device that extends the range of the communications between the devices

This is true, it's hard to find a balanced system, which will work the way that you want it to. This is only in the case when you try to install it by yourself, when the professionals are doing this, they usually are doing it very good, so the system works in an optimal form, in your entire house. The vivint system works which I am using, works excellent. I never got any random alarms, or stuff like this. It only lets me know that something is happening, when it actually happens, not only a fake alarm when there is no danger.

Hi! You can buy the basic home alarm system include app alarm panel, motion sensor, siren strobe, and outdoor infrared break beam or detector. It will notify you when your home is broken.

How about fake alarms? How does it handle it? As what I know, these basic alarms are prone to fake ringing.

Expect minimal margin for error. Though, it happens only in rare cases unless you have excessive dust and spider webs.

You and your family will save more time if you have a monitored security system. Professionals will monitor your home even when you are sleeping or traveling, rather than just periodically.

When the alarm goes off, the response is also instantaneous. If the system detects a fire, break-in, or other emergency, the professionals will immediately inform the security team or emergency personnel. You don't have to be concerned about finding authorities to assist you.
