We are looking at the 2Gig system but I have a question about Crash and Smash. The most logical place for me to mount the control panel is in the utility room off the garage. If someone broke in from the garage door and set off the door alarm - it would take literally seconds for them to locate and smash the control panel.
I understand how the system sends an alert and would be unable to disaram the alert if smashed - but how fast does that initial alert register? I know this is a cellular system - but is like opening a phone call to create the initial alert or is it more like a cellular ping? I am concerned if it is like a cell call due to the amount of time it takes to initiate - the panel could be dead before it makes the first alert call.
