Any recommendations for wireless GSM Cellular Self Monitoring Home Security System?

I am looking for a GSM cellular wireless self monitoring home security system, like the ones that use a SIM card to notify a set of predefined phone numbers, in case an alarm goes out. I need something that does not require a monthly subscription for monitoring such as those from ADT, and it should support wireless sensors for door/windows, wireless fire & smoke detection, and wireless motion detection sensors. So far, I have found a few, such as the one in the link below:

If anyone has researched or installed such a system, I would appreciate your thoughts/suggestions.

Just wondering, are you doing this to Save Money? or because you don't have a landline?

If you have the landline, there are a few low cost monitoring services like 'the monitoring center' which might be less than the SIM cost.

Landlines for alarms are a bit risky though. One snip on the outside of the house and the alarm is useless.

Yes to save money and also because I dont have a landline.

Recip share a wireless connection with a neighbor and use a standard alarm dialer over voip


How is Verizon service in your area?

Mad Skilz?
Could also do a number things with say a PagePlus 12$mo plan 250 texts on a cheap andriod and a trigger and forward a txt

Local alarm folks may want about 30$mo for similar

You can check out http://www.rapidrelays.com If you are looking for anything related to home security and wireless relay control. If you need a wireless system that when your PIR or door contact is triggered the transmitter can send a signal to a surveillance DVR and that will send you snap shot photos. Rapid Relays is the only company to offer a wireless universal interface for home security and a free Android-iphone app. You can control the siren and outdoor flood lights etc... Check out the new Echo wireless chip.

Thanks for the suggestions. I just got the pisector self monitored system and so far it works great

simplisafe.com ?

Someone mentioned this in a FWF thread. Seems like a decent system without the hassle of running wires.

i looked into simplisafe. however, here are the downsides of simplisafe- 1)No fire/smoke monitoring sensors.2) Monitoring by cell phone costs monthly subscription fee.

Pisector on the other hand offers all kinds of sensors, everything is wireless like simplisafe but more options, and you can get cell phone monitoring without a monthly subscription. I use a prepaid tmobile sim card that costs $10 for 90 days.
