I am in the research phase for a security system for a home I just purchased.
Here are my concerns (maybe you can alleviate them?)
-Worried that phone line can be cut on traditional system
-Worried that any motion detector/etc that is wireless can be "jammed"/"tricked"
With these concerns in mind, I am thinking about:
Laptop with an 8hour lithium battery (but it will be plugged in) T-Mobile cellular internet connection (I have verizon wireless internet for my work but it's pricey at $80/mo) NextAlarm.com's ABN Broadband Adaptor Some sort of home security system.. any suggestions? 2story house,plenty of windows/doors (wired -unless there is no worry about wireless vulnerabilities???)
Questions..1) how will the ABN adapter plug into my laptop? 2) T-Mobile ceulluar internet runs at about 5-9KB/sec tops.. will this be fast enough?? 3) How does the entire connection stream work: central alarm unit ->
abn adapter -> (usb?) laptop -> t-mobile -> nextalarm.com4) How hard is it to do the wired vrs wireless security yourself? I would think like ten times harder at least?
Thanks for your time,
ps- what do you think about "flex-o-glass" film to apply over the windows?
