Suggestions for diy alarm
Anyone have suggestions for diy alarm? I'm currently with a brinks system costing $25 a month. Looking for something cheaper and smarter. Would need to integrate with Google home.

I'm not even against self monitoring, with a local audible alarm, just looking for suggestions

With Ring Alarm there is no point in going unmonitored anymore, it’s $10 a month or $100 a year. You also get unlimited cameras for that price.

Hang some tin cans and pie plates from a string, and rig that up like a trip wire.

Contemplating changing out an older Bosch wired system to a new wireless one. I have 20 windows and doors to replace sensors on but I have read that rarely do burglars enter thru windows and that these sensors are not needed. No window sensors would save me about $300. Worth it?

Simply Safe is $15 a month. Not sure if it integrates with Google Home, though. Look into that

Saving only $300 doesn’t seem worth it. If you are going through the trouble to install an alarm system, I’d probably just go ahead and put on the window sensors. You’ll prob feel really stupid if you upgrade and then get robbed thru a window because you saved $300.

You can convert your wired system to a "smart" system that you monitor yourself through smartthings.

Check out Konnected.io You use the same wired sensors already installed and just rewire them to a new board which connects to your home's wifi. You can then replace your keypad with a tablet or your phone and control it all.
