I have Simplisafe and have used it for a few years now with no complaints so far (granted, I never had a break in or fire or anything else that would trigger the alarm so I can't say how it all works during a real alarm).

What I like about it is that I configure it all, chose what sensors I need, buy and install the equipment. No contract or subscription signup needed, monitoring is optional but affordable. It is all wireless, over cellular, with motion and/or entry sensors that can be setup just how you want it. Add to this a smoke/CO2 detector, freeze/low temp warning, and water/flood sensors and it's a pretty comprehensive setup. You can control all of it from your online account or through a smart phone app. The system also will notify you during power outages and has several hours of battery backup built in.

Anyone else who have this system, any experiences?

I have the simplisafe system as well with no complaints. Great customer service as well. A big nice upgrade from the ADT POS alarm system with high monthly cost, bad service and contract BS. They just need to provide a glass break sensor soon.

If you like paying three times as much for monitoring, being locked into a three year contract with cancellation fees equal to the full amount of your contracted payments, and getting locked out of your own equipment when you cancel service, then by all means go with ADT.

The problem with ADT is their installers are untrained, they get them right off the street and when they have a problem they are on the phone with an experienced tech.
