I was looking at getting an Ademco Lynx after reading comments about the
various wireless systems on the newsgroups. However, I worry about the
vulnerability of the control unit. If you have a breakin, the built in
siren goes off, and the goblin knows exactly where the control unit is.
Then with one big hit the unit is disabled and no more dialing out,
If the unit is hidden in a closet, the sound will still draw him to it.
If we were to buy a remote siren (and keyfobs/control panel) is there a
way to disable the built in siren without opening the controller and
cutting wires etc?
Can anyone suggest a better system, where this is not an issue? Please
keep the following limits in mind:
1) I am trying to keep the cost within reason (not to say cheap, just
2) Hardwiring is impractical (2 story home, no crawl space, cathedral
3) Dial out capabilities essential
4) Only 4 opening doors/windows on the ground floor, planning on 2
motion sensors upstairs (in case anyone knows of a kit that has that
number of sensors)
