I have an alarm which is only set when we leave the house.  This obviously didn't help us when we were burgled two weeks ago while we were in the house sleeping!  A security system like this would have helped immensely, and is why I am entering this draw.  Thanks.

No security system as yet but have been playing around with MotionPie for the Raspberry Pi.

Current system is a paradox evo192 with multiple wired pirs and smoke alarms.

Would be great to add this to capture video as well as be able to check on the dog while we are out.

We currently have a monitored Paradox unit.  But mostly we rely on the ferocious, marauding tomcat to keep us safe.

 

 

We could definitely use the CleverLoop to make sure he's doing his designated rounds ;-)

I have only the neighbours chihuahua that barks at the sound of a pin dropping. Just bliss when you are trying to sleep in..

Current security system is me.  Obviously somewhat ineffective when I'm not there, or sleeping.

 

The new neighbours have some sort of yappy security system that extends to covering part of my property also.  No idea what brand/breed it is.  Small, white, fluffy and yappy.  It usually alerts me to the fact I'm entering my own house.

 

It's possibly one of these:

I have an Aliexpress special at the front door. It works OK. The dog used to be quite effective until he went deaf!

Currently, just an electronic keypad door, which makes a completely asinine noise if you enter the wrong code too many times. Nothing fancy, it came with the place. 

 

 

 

The best part is, no one can figure out how to get OUT of the house without help. There used to be an alarm system hooked up, but it never worked properly. It was installed before we moved in.

I have this professionally installed and programmed (by myself) I'm really surprised it does what it is meant to.

Paradox system with wireless sensors and smoke alarm.

I want to change to the Cleverloop system to take advantage of the Cameras.

Ps This is for sale if I happen to win. Haha.
