    Comments about SAM Security C5 Self-Activated Monitoring System:

    We bought this alarm because it was the only one we could find that you could buy in a store. (we needed it that day b/c my husband was leaving town for work). I really like the texts you get. You recieve them when the alarm is triggerd, when the key pad unit is unplugged, or if the battery is low. I like that you dont have to install the keypad to the wall. That way it cant be seen or eaisly smashed (most other units get installed right next to the door so a robber can clearly see it or smash it. I move it into our bedroom at night so I can hear it. It is loud, but not loud enough that your neighbors would be bothered by (if you live in a house). So when it goes off, you get a text and can call the police. As far as I know, the unit does not call the police, but you can make calls through the keypad if you are home. I also like the motion sensor. So far, we are happy.

    Comments about SAM Security C5 Self-Activated Monitoring System:

    In my opinion this is a great package for the money. While it doesn't notify emergency services, it does a very good job of monitoring your home. The biggest drawback I found was the documentation is not great. Read the entire manual twice and watch the internet videos before starting. You won't get an email saying the system is activated til the circle around the dog lights up and you press the dog button, other than that there shouldn't be any guesswork. I put mine in last night and would I recommend to a friend...already have this morning.

              Comments about SAM Security C5 Self-Activated Monitoring System:

              This system seems good on paper but when purchased, it's unusable. It simply doesn't work as advertised. I don't feel that it was tested enough or properly investigated before being released to the public.

              The sensors only work intermittently, the system freezes (!! how can an ALARM be reliable if it freezes!!), the manual doesn't explain things very well at all. Too many other issues to list honestly. Stay far away from this.

              Engineering Technology is inherently defective. After a day and a half on the phone with SAM techs, we could not get the system to work. It had many inherent engineering defects.

                Comments about SAM Security C5 Self-Activated Monitoring System:

                I found it very easy to set up even though I am not technically inclined. I have been using it and really like that I can arm and disarm from my cell phone when I am away from my house and it sends me a text to let me know that my panel got armed. Very cool. Much better looking than many systems out there. I am waiting for more accessories to add. I think it would be good to put in my mom's apartment.
