Startup: World's Simplest Intrusion System?

By Brian Rhodes, Published Mar 31, 2014, 12:00am EDT (Info+)

The DIY Intrusion market is hot, with new entrants emerging frequently.

The newest one pulls no punches claiming "anyone can use it" and "everyone can afford it". Comprised of two basic pieces, a sensor and a fob, the concept is that even techno-luddites can install and operate their own intrusion system.

Actually, one of our guys deployed this most basic intrusion system on his vacation this winter. Paranoid or innovatiive? Rumor has it that he's going to be looking for funding for his startup this summer.

That's hilarious. I one time tilted various items on doors and windows in our house before we had an alarm system after I had a curious individual come to our house during the day. It doesn't call the police but it does give you a nice banging notification.

Also the first night we had our alarm system installed the "pet proof" wireless sensor sensed our cst and the alarm went off - it was the first time in the dead of night and I freaked out, jumped off my bed and in mid flight grabbed my wife's 5 ft stand up mirror and landed on the ground holding it in front of me like an aboriginal shield and went from room to room screaming at the top of my lungs and scaring my kids... I finally made it back to my bedroom after my galant sweep of the house and found my wife literally on the floor laughing so hard she was crying.

Same setup here in Serbia, except we plug in iron.

LOL. This needs a "like" button.

Another fine product from McCallister Home Security INC

This is a good idea - but I think the reliance on internet is still crude and non-redundant. Perhaps adding in the option to run BT and/or 3g/4g?

 

The battery in the sensor is good for 3 years they claim. I think this is sufficient and users could just make it a habit to change them every 12 -24 months and test them every 3 or 6 months for safe measure.
