I'm going to have a fairly basic hardwired residential alarm system installed in my home. I'm thinking of having the installer mount it inside the coat closet by the outside door, instead of out in the open on the wall by the door, for two reasons: (1) This should prevent our young children from playing with it. With its buttons and lights, Im sure they'll want to play with it. If we mount it a bit out of their reach, they'll get a chair. If we mount it higher than they can reach with a chair, then my wife won't easily be able to reach it, and it will probably look strange anyway. (2) I've read that sometimes uneducated burglars, upon breaking in, immediately destroy the keypad or rip it off the wall, because they think it will prevent a call to the police. That would cost me money. If it's in the closet, I suppose they're less likely to find it or bother with it. What are your thoughts? Thanks for your time.
