Since it is not shipping yet, my guess is that no one has much
experience with this product.

Unlike others who throw a fit if they suspect a hidden commercial
motive in a post such as yours, I'd like to thank you for pointing out
something I might be interested in buying, if it lives up to its
promise, and the price is right.

The website was slow to load, and I left wondering exactly how the
system works.  In particular:  How does the remote notification work?
What level of remote control is possible?  What role does the required
telephone line play?

Having the ability to use a mobile phone service to send text messages
would be nice.  With Virgin Mobile, you can have the service for $5 per
month, and sending a text message is 10 cents, receiving is free.
While I realize this would take some clever engineering, it nicely
sidesteps a couple of problems.  If the system is for a rental unit,
you have to either use a tenant's phone line, or install a dedicated
line.  If you are worried about break-ins, a cell system eliminates
cutting the phone lines as a way to disable the system.

geez no commercial or personal involvement here from me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, I
just saw a write up in the new Smart Homeowner magazine September/October
issue page 11. I posted the note before I realized it hasn't yet shipped, I
too am intrigued and did sign up to receive more info. The mag lists the
starter pack at 149, w/ ea additional sensor at 35-49 dollars.
