Questions before I jump in.
After researching for hours on google, I am deciding on SimpliSafe alarm system. I have few questions though. Could please address them.
1. I need this system for San Jose, CA. Is the service available in this area?
2. I notice most of the customer are from east coast. Do you have customers from San Jose, CA and my zip code?
3. I read somewhere that your Alarm company is not registered in CA. In that case, does the police respond to the emergency calls from your dispatch center?
4. After I install the system, Do I need to tell my local authories about my alarm system for them to register and respond to emergency?
5. Like others, I am concerned about the new hardware upgrade. If I buy it now, upgrading a base unit later is enough or Do I need to change door sensor / motion detectors and key pad?
6. I don't have text service on my cell phone. Can I upgrade for the email/text service any time after sign up for basic monitoring?
7. If I forget to close one window while activating alarm, does the key pad nitify me about the open window or do I have to look at the base station all the time?
8. Will I get a text message about the open window?
9. Can I use VoIP phone connection like vonage to connect to base station as a back up to connect to dispatch center?
10. I read about the system can be defeated with RF jammers. But I am guessing it would be same risk with other alarm systems as well.
Thanks in advance.
