I’m a Frontpoint customer looking to replace an intermittent/unreliable Simon XT.
I have just a few questions!
First I’m trying to figure out if the fault truly lies with the panel, or if the sensors are playing a role also. All sensors have fresh batteries, but doors within 15 feet of the panel are not reporting reliably. Generally speaking, do GE sensors have a good reputation for implementing supervisory signals? I ask because the Simon XT has not alerted me to any of these problems, thus far.
Based on the answer to #1 - Would I be able to reuse my GE door/window/garage door sensors with 2gig or Qolsys?
Cellular reporting with Frontpoint / Simon XT / Alarm.com is terribly slow. SMS and Push Notifications take 30 seconds or more to arrive. I see that new panels are beginning to implement WIFI. Has any manufacturer (2gig or Qolsys) taken advantage of this to bypass the slow cellular network when a WIFI connection is available?
Also, do you offer discounts if I post a Youtube video demonstrating Simon XT Crash and Smash reporting? lol
