Hmmmm, I might have to consider this. We would like to have more security but the contracts for current companies are way overpriced.

I am getting ready to pull the trigger on this... go to their facebook page http://www.facebook.com/SimpliSafe

15 bucks per month is good and there are no contracts, they even take Paypal

Nice security system there, but I can bring a female dog in heat to your house or 2 lbs of hamburger and that sweet puppy is like putty in my hands...

With the number of wireless camera/security systems sold in this country, I'd have a set of jammers as my number one tool. If I were a thief that is. Don't bet on obscurity.

From Wiki...



United States (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States): Cell phone blocking devices are used by federal officials under certain circumstances. Privacy rights of property owners may affect the policy and application of law within buildings. The FCC may issue a permit that waives the law for private use. For radio communications, it is illegal to operate, manufacture, import, or offer for sale, including advertising (Communications Act of 1934 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communications_Act_of_1934)).<sup id="cite_ref-10" class="reference">[11] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_phone_jammer#cite_note-10)</sup> Blocking radio communications in public can carry fines of up to $11,000 or imprisonment of up to one year.<sup id="cite_ref-11" class="reference">[12] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_phone_jammer#cite_note-11)</sup> The Homeland Security Act of 2002 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homeland_Security_Act_of_2002) may override the Communications Act of 1934.<sup id="cite_ref-12" class="reference">[13] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_phone_jammer#cite_note-12)</sup>


I'm guessing if the signal is not broadcast beyond your property nobody will complain though.

Now the jammer will work but the alarm still goes off and if you buy the outside extra alarm it's suppose to be as loud as the front row at a rock concert...

Are you sure? I'd have to see the schematics of the system in question, but most don't have an audible alarm built directly into each sensor. Most are bluetooth or wifi connectivity between the sensors and the main unit which houses the audible/signal alarms. This jammer blocks the GSM signal to the monitoring service as well any sensor to controller wireless activity.

It's not like this gear is "hollywood". Truckers use these units to block GPS signals on their trucks to keep from being tracked. You can buy these online for pretty cheap. The jammer I linked to is CHEAPER than your alarm system. Hell, I'd take your alarm system on the way out the door as well!
:D

I guess I just don't see the point of these half-assed "peace of mind" products.

The system can be used with or without monitoring Also it says the signal is transmitted within 2 seconds... Also the base station can be put anywhere, I am not sure of the range of the jammer.

The delay on the audible alarm can be adjusted up to 30 seconds upon entry.

Range is about 20 meters on the cheaper units.

Still don't know how the signal works between sensor and base. Easy to test though. Park outside and turn the jammer on. Wait 60 seconds. No alarm, have at it!

That would be a kick in the sack. Come home and not only are your guns gone, but the alarm system has been packed up and boosted. LMAO

They better hope the cops run them down, before I do.

Any idea what the range is on those cell jammers?

Properly bolted into the foundation.

Things that don't go in there, like TV's and laptops I just rely on insurance. Data I rely on TrueCrypt and backups in the safe. SDB as well for soft/hard copies, some cash, and other precious items.

Got the system today, seems pretty cool....

Sends me a text when the alarm is armed, disarmed or triggered...

Home mode activates door and window sensors, away mode activates door and motion detectors... Suppose to not go off for pets under 50 lbs, my dog is 30 lbs and has not set it off

If any of you decide to buy one... PM me as if you go thru me since I bought one you will get an extra 5% off of the system and I will get a free month monitoring for you buying one...

This thing is pretty cool, it sends you a text when the system is armed, disarmed or the alarm goes off or when power goes off in the house it has a battery backup system that will last 4 days if the power goes off though.
