    Thanks for the replies everyone. I called ADT when we first moved in and they offered a pretty ridiculous plan that was crazy expensive and didn’t cover hardly any windows or doors. I’m really only interested in a noise maker when we’re home to alert me. Thanks again

        That is really interesting. Basically you remove your panel but use all the same wires and sensors and jake your alarm capable of WiFi and controlled by your phone, and price isn’t bad. I’ll def keep it in mind while I play around with mine. Thanks!

          Been testing Ring Alarm. Simple setup. Local alerts or central station. DIY friendly for sure. Low equipment and low monthly

            I have the ring doorbell and I like it, but I have so many windows that it would cost a lot to cover them all, or even just my first floor ones.

              I’ve cooled to Ring. Stories of monitoring and misuse of collided or stored data bother me. Similar to Alexa, I just don’t trust these corporate intrusions the devices allow. Also, Ring is negotiating with many, many localities to permit access to their systems for “authorized” or “public safety” reasons. Slippery slope stuff, kinda like EZ-Pass records now being a part of every divorce action or criminal case where location, activity or movement is questioned.

                Just use a motion detector to cover entire room. Hard to justify installing per window. Pre construction yes hard wire sensor each to create the zone.

                  Anything connected to the internet or cellular is tracked. It's the norm. There is no privacy unfortunately anywhere.

                    That would work for away mode, but when home it would be tough to do with little kids going to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
