Some notes/reviews and a way to add additional sensors and such on Amazon:

People STILL have landline phones? Gave that up back in 2005. Would love this alarm, yet it looks like one has to have a landline to even set it up. Bummer


#6

Additional window door sensors are costly. $25.00 a piece


#7

this seems like a easy way to put an alarm on a workshop in backyard or in a travel trailer in driveway as long as wifi is reachable and available. But also while camping in trailer using a mifi hotspot.

Does this have to have a phone line?


#8

This sounds great! Now, where do I buy this “land line” of which you speak?


#9

At Ooma!


#10

How much are additional sensor ? Where can I purchase them ?


#11

I think that price is about right. I have an AT&T digital life system and extra window contacts are sold in 5 piece bundles for $150. You would think by the nature of their construction that these things would be cheaper.


#12

Actually, if AT&T wasn’t charging me $25+/month for just local service (8 calls per month, 10 cents a minute after that!), I’d probably still have a landline.

Still the most reliable method of communications after a natural disaster, and living at the end of Tornado Alley, it’s always possible we’d see a destructive storm. While you can see landline circuits be overwhelmed, it’s not going to happen as quickly as a cell phone tower will, and so long as you have a regular (non-cordless) phone, you can call out, even if the power is out.


#13

All,I see is the system


#14

Sarzanini did mention reviews, which is where you’ll find things like “then purchase additional sensors separately. The motion detector is currently $30 and the window/door sensors are currently $25.”

Manual:

Questions I have:

  1. Does the W100 require a PSTN landline to setup or operate, or can it be setup and operated via wifi only?
    (It appears to me that it does not require a landline, but does not specifically state that)

  2. Do the smartphone apps indicate the armed / disarmed state of the alarm?
    In other words, if the system is armed, and I did not arm it, can I view the state of the system from a remote location via wifi?
    (It appears to me that it might, if not from the main page, it might from the sensor page)

  3. Is the 18650 backup battery user replaceable?
    (Manual states 12 hour backup on installed 1200mah battery…so a 3400mah battery has got to be more better!)

  4. Can the system be set up as a silent alarm, with the siren deactivated, and notifications still be sent to the smartphone app?
    (It looks like siren can be turned off, and there is even a mention of a volume control)

  5. Is there a limit on the number of smartphones that may be connected to the unit?

Does anybody have one of these, or can staff find out these things… I’m sure I’m not the only one with a question… Especially #1 - PSTN?


#16

I assume that this system will not work with ATT Uverse phone service. I am sure that the PSTN connection is optional, but I would want an alarm system that can handle a non-analog phone system.

Actually, my current alarm system which is 15 years old calls out on my Uverse phone (VOIP) no problem, so not sure why this alarm system would not work with Uverse phone (but manual specifically states that this alarm system does not support digital phone network).

Also wonder how long the window/door sensor batteries last, too. The sensors require 2 non-rechargeable button type batteries. My current alarm system uses rechargeable AAA batteries which require somewhat frequent replacement depending on where the sensor is located (such as a entry door that gets used a lot). Too bad this system uses the more expensive non-rechargeable batteries.


#17

I think the manual says the PIR sensor uses AA batteries, the door sensor uses the (2032?) lithium button cells.
The button cells may last a long time (depending on door use), as it would only have to send the base station a signal when the door opened or closed, otherwise, I am guessing 0% drain in standby.

In for one, I guess!


#18

“The landline is the primary alert and notification method but if the line has been compromised, the alerts are sent out via WiFi.” From Amazon.


#19

A little late for the woot, but the manufacturer replied to my email… I am posting now so perhaps the next time it comes up in woot, some of the questions may be answered.

Here is also a video on the setup:

Answers below are from Arno, a sales rep.

  1. Does the W100 require a PSTN landline to setup or operate, or can it be setup and operated via wifi only?
    A: Of course you can use wifi only and operate it. When an intrusion is triggered, the system will push a notification to your smartphone first, and then make a phone call to you via PSTN. If no PSTN, you will not be able to receive emergency call. That is the difference.

  2. Do the smartphone apps indicate the armed / disarmed state of the alarm?
    In other words, if the system is armed, and in did not arm it, can I view the state of the system from a remote location via wifi?
    A: Sure, download the free apps from app store or google play by searching key words " smanos". Pls try and check it out.

  3. Is the 18650 backup battery user replaceable?
    A: We suggest not, any disassembling may cause damage to the product.

  4. Can the system be set up as a silent alarm, with the siren deactivated, and notifications still be sent to the smartphone app?
    A: Sure, get the W100 app and turn off the volume.

  5. Is there a limit on the number of smartphones that may be connected to the unit?
    A: No limit

No, you don’t need a landline you can use it with WiFi only or stand alone.
