I'm curious if anyone up here in the foothills has a security system. If so, who do you have? Does it work well? Cost? Reliability? Does it rely on wifi, cell, landline etc. As you all know, wifi and cell coverage is spotty at best up here, and it seems like most systems require one or the other. My "neighbors" have simplisafe and they love it. But they have cell coverage at their house and I don't. It's my understanding that simplisafe relies on cell signal. We'd like a system to watch the house when we are away. Thanks for any advice!

We had ADT in Bailey, but we had a landline that their system tied into. I have no idea how they work with cell-only customers, but if you have a landline then it should be an option for you.

SimpliSafe uses wifi first with a cell backup. $14.99 monthly monitoring. Very easy to install and great customer service.

Ha Ha. Oh, trust me... If they break in when I'm here, I've got it covered. I'd like something to watch the place when I'm not around.

At one time I bought alarm system from ADT -- not cheap. However, I also understand the service that is provided with ADT and if living in an area that is prone to break ins; etal. I now am at home, 24/7...no job in the city down the mountain. ADT does not collect the yard signs … and would suggest that the sign posted at the drive deters prospecting thieves; i.e., those driving through the neighborhood looking for vulnerable properties. I also have a dog that barks and barks when anyone drives up my driveway as well as a driveway alarm.
