.. although after seeing how easy it is to takeover a zwave device i wonder because there was just a report of how they turn them off before they enter the home
Really, how easy is it to take over a zwave device prior to entering home? I don’t remember reading about that. Post a URL link.
However it would be nice to have the remote siren sound just like the go control siren.
I wonder are there any sirens that sound like the go control? probably not but I figure i would ask…
As for sounding sirens sounding like panel, there are some that do, but Everspring and Fortrezz are not one of them to my knowledge. Perhaps the Resolution…?
My concern like YoYo’s was to not lead the intruder to the control panel
To do this properly you unplug the panel speaker, and you use wired/wireless siren(s), BUT you will lose 2way voice capability (but that should not be a primary concern for those who want to hide the main panel location).
In my case, it doesn’t matter. Main panel is installed properly center of home off the main level (I have three levels). To get to it, an intruder must pass multiple perimeter and interior PIR/Image sensors and cameras (both regular and infrared), and ascend to another floor of the home.
Alarm will trigger at central station regardless, and by the time they even get to the main panel they have already been captured on multiple video and imaging devices.
All levels have secondary panels (TS1, PAD1) as well.
Soon as panel alarms for either perimeter or interior sensor, lights on floor levels activate illuminating home.
