x10 DS7000 system has once again saved MY possessions this past Thursday...that makes 3 times in the last 2 years that my x10 has been triggered by attempted break-ins. My cell phone and my wife's have always been called. This time my cell phone was called, system reset itself, triggered again, called my cell phone again...that's when we called the police and they found where the attempt had been made.
One time a branch from a tree fell against our window where we had the GB10A glass break sensor...window didn't break but the alarm was triggered.
Call me stupid but I have total confidence in the DS7000 system...as a matter of fact, I have 2 - DS7000 set-ups because I needed an additional 10 sensors.
Every window has x10 door/window sensors (with Sentrol Glass Break sensors wired in series with the d/s sensor), there are also 4 motion sensors, 5 GB10A sensors, 4 power horns, 2 motion flood lights and controlled lights to be activated by them.
I also wired an outside alert horn (one of the horn discs from an old console), that when I set the alarm from outside...I can tell it has been set.
Perfect system...hell no...however, it has proven itself to me...and after 3 1/2 years (SAME COMPONENTS except for 1 failed console) ...I'll keep using x10
