    Great Product. Siren is weak. You will probably need ( to purchase) a good siren for outside.

    This is a good system. I prefer hardwire over wireless. The only con is the siren, its weak. You may need to purchase a better siren.

    My system works great. Had a few bugs at first since I converted over from a hard wired alarm system that was 35 years old. The tech help is very good if you don't mind spending an hour waiting to be picked up. You must also purchase a PK5500ENG keypad. This makes life so much easier. I think that the vendor should increase the price of the package by $40 and include the better keypad instead of the one they now use. JR

    With out being able to use a 30W siren the whole system is virtually worthless. Every home needs to have a 30W siren. The one it comes with which is a 15W siren is not loud at all.

    The system worked ok for 16 months and after that the main circut board went out. So now just in time for Christmas when theft is high here in Houston( Lucky enough I have a back up Cookie my pitbull ) I need to purchase a circut board or move to a different system.

    Using only the installation manual, owner's manual and programming worksheet, (all included and also found online) sucessfully installed a complete DSC 632, 832 and 1832 system in the past. The programming was the most challenging part but I just sat down and figured it out with no assistance... Now, am also putting this system into an outbuilding. It's good to hear from others on here that capable tech support is available but I'm independent. Like to figure it out myself. It's just a matter of carefully reading and following the instructions. Used only LCD keypads, hardwired systems and loud sirens. Put in a system BEFORE the horse gets out of the barn (you have a break in). You can always get local technical assistance if needed.

    this is the fourth system I have purchased over the past ten years and I have never had one problem with any of the system. I purchaed one for my parents as well and they love it. 5 stars for sure. I will soon be building me another home and I will no doubt be installing this system in it as well.

    I purchased this unit on Wednesday with two day air and received it Friday afternoon. I started the installation on Saturday and completed on Sunday. Installation was a breeze, but when I attempted to program the system with the enclosed instructions, everything came to a screeching halt! I have less than 20/20 vision and the 6 to 8 font didn't help at all. I called tech support on Monday morning and Freddie had my system up and running in less than five minutes. If not for the shabby programming instructions, the Kit32-Power5 receives five stars easily. If you are a former hostage to A**, I highly recommend this unit as a replacement for the Brinks 4000A.

    Great price for a system with so much room for expansion. To make programming easier, buy an additional keypad with alphanumeric text - helps tremendously! Great system, I couldn't be happier!

    This is a Very good system. I installed one in a home I built 10 years ago and had no problems. We recently purchased a new home and I installed one in our new home as well. I love the reliability of this system, so much so I just purchased one and installed it in my parents’ home. Great system to build on. You can add endless features to this system.

    Great system, impossible to program from the manual. I still give it a five star rating because the programing is a non issue, just call tech support. In 10 minutes, on the phone it was up and running.

    I bought this system to replace a malfunctioning, 20 year old.This system is 1000 times better that the old. Install was easy but the programming, not so. A quick call to the tech support and Freddy had it up and running in just a few minutes. The fast shipping is nice but the customer support, it can't be beat. These guys are the greatest. Thank you.

    First of all Home security Tech support is AWESOME. Their shipping is fast. This alarm is easy to install/program. You cannot beat the price and quality of this alarm. Installed it in my parents custom home they just hand built. All windows and doors hard wired, installed 4 key pads. I bought all cabling, window/door sensors from Home security store. Alarm works Great! Tech support will tell you exactly how to program everything.

    I just finished installing this alarm, if you are worried about programming or wiring email tech support, they are truly the best. My experience with them has exceeded my expectations. In other words go ahead and get ambitious with any alarm, you will have great support. I even got the programming done for me, telling you tech support rocks!! email is always fast.
