Thanks, the SIM can just be a pay as you go.
Upon seeing this article I was slightly worried that this was going to be a lot better than the Yale Smart Alarm I'd fitted recently. As you say at the cost increase I think I might still choose that as it was a breeze to install, works very well and I would not be happy to pay someone to do something so simple.Doubt they will get many takers with an install price of around 4 x the unit cost.
Looks a lot as is not exactly rocket science to install.
Looks and sounds very good but would gall me to cough up so much money for what I would suggest a couple of hours work!
@anavfan you probably have to call security company who installed it for advice. In case you need additional sensor I would use retailers like ALDeals (www.aldeals.co.uk) or miecctv (www.miecctv.co.uk)What happens when you want to change something, add a sensor etc? Do you have to pay for said installer to come out again?
This is how 'trade' they are - this is the company behind CCTVKits
There are differences between these 2 systems. For example, Ajax is much easier and faster to set up than Pyronix. Installers spend less time setting up Ajax, which allows them to close more deals. At the same time, clients get an operating system in less time.Overall it looks like an OK alarm system but I dont really see it being much better than something like a Pyronix Enforcer which is 1/3 of the price for almost the same functionality.
All Ajax hubs and ReX signal extenders have built-in batteries that allow them to operate for up to 16 hours during a blackoutNot the most elegant solution for your battery backup,
Once the hardware is installed, I can set up an Pyronix Enforcer in 30-60 minutes from scratch for an average 3-4 bed house. I would be interested in how quickly you believe that you can program a similar Ajax system from scratch. If I am booked out for an install. a 30 minute time saving will make zero difference to my day as far as either the client or myself are concerned.There are differences between these 2 systems.

This is the key point You can fully install and set up Ajax StarterKit and register all users accounts within 30 minutes.Once the hardware is installed
