Unlike others who throw a fit if they suspect a hidden commercial
motive in a post such as yours, I'd like to thank you for pointing out
something I might be interested in buying, if it lives up to its
promise, and the price is right.
The website was slow to load, and I left wondering exactly how the
system works. In particular: How does the remote notification work?
What level of remote control is possible? What role does the required
telephone line play?
Having the ability to use a mobile phone service to send text messages
would be nice. With Virgin Mobile, you can have the service for $5 per
month, and sending a text message is 10 cents, receiving is free.
While I realize this would take some clever engineering, it nicely
sidesteps a couple of problems. If the system is for a rental unit,
you have to either use a tenant's phone line, or install a dedicated
line. If you are worried about break-ins, a cell system eliminates
cutting the phone lines as a way to disable the system.
