I use them. The system has high upfront cost but low for monitoring. Super easy to install. The only issue I have had is the base station has become disconnected from their servers a few times. Nothing a reboot doesn't cure.

Buy extra sirens. The base station isn't that loud.

I don't need an alarm but my wife does. I have the basic $15 month plan so no phone control. The $25 month plan has phone control.

Buy your own wireless system (I use Simon Xti) and find a provider who will cover you for $10/month or so. They're super easy to install and setup (and add on to)... youtube documents almost everything you need.

I have it and like it. I don't have it set up monitoring anything, so it'll just yell really loud but not call anyone. The city I live in requires actual video monitoring to confirm a break-in before dispatching officers. Be sure to check with your local police before paying for monthly service that won't ever come to anything.
