Looking into buying a good wireless infared alarm system for my apartment. There have been a few burglaries in my neighborhood within the last few years, not a huge deal, but I have a lot of guns and ammo to protect while I'm not home :eek: (yes I have a gun safe)

I've been looking at a product called the autodialer, but I think it will only link up to a fixed phone line; what I need my alarm to do is stay silent itself and alert my cell phone. Does anyone have any good suggestions? Thanks

When I was shopping, I ended up buying from www.homesecuritystore.com

Lots of options.

ADT now has an option to view your house from the net.

i'd like that option; sounds "Bondish" to me.

It is my understanding that x10 cameras are not secure enough. Their video feeds are not difficult to tap into with ease. They are not AES encrypted WPA wifi signals of course. In an apartment setting, I would be especially cautionary on that.
