And coming home to more of the same. I got the call from the monitoring company and sigh.
I guess as time continues to spin faster, I forgot that the first thing I did when I bought this house six years ago was to throw the ADT alarm to the curb. ADT did not know what to do when I asked them if the hardware here when I bought the house was theirs or mine. They decided that it would be abandoned in place, secure in the knowledge that they would not divulge the installer codes. Heh. I did the equivalent of a Ctrl-Alt-Del to it and reprogrammed it. Just to make things more interesting I added additional stuff to it both wired and wireless.
So now it is telling me that my backup battery is failing. OK I should have seen that coming. No big deal. That was one of the first things I did after I brought it back to life.
I do hate to come home and deal with technical problems though. I would much rather contemplate upgrading the entertainment system to this:
Integration with the old stuff will require some thinking on my part.
I will not be buying one of these though!Read the reviews, they are funny as hell (Well to me anyway)!
