My current and previous homes had wired alarm systems built into them. The problem with the old wired systems was that there was no ability to remotely control them and no way to remotely see what was happening when an alarm went off, much less automatically capture video. An alarm going off required a manual check and resulted in more than one false alarm reported to the local police. So having the ability to personally control and monitor a system is a must for me.
The Skylink SK-200 is a dedicated security system starter kit. It is a proprietary system rather than an open system which means that all the added peripherals will need to be Skylink. This actually makes it easier for many people to install since there is no conflict between different system protocols. One app will connect all the components of the system which has a huge amount of expandability. Article Link
