We upgraded our home security alarm system a couple of months ago.
We chose the cellular option and get a txt every time there is activity on the system.
This means a text for actual alarms but also every time we set and unset the alarm when we go in and out.
Easily 20 texts a week, probably more.
It also has a feature to allow us to text the system so we can open our gate remotely.
The installer put in a VF sim but this often failed to get signal.
A 2D pre-pay sim was put in a month ago, and this is working well.
However, it relies on me remembering to pay $10 every month.
The chap in-store was unable to offer anything better.
Either pre-pay $10/m or 50c for each time it sends a text.
The $10/m is definitely the cheaper option.
Is this the best way to setup a cellular alarm system?
