    I take it there may be a subscription model for this then? I wouldn't mind paying if they could guarantee it to be 100% reliable but then again I'm sure they'll have some sort of get out clause and with their current attempt at push messaging it hasn't been a great advert of their ability.

    The model hasn't been released.

    there are free systems out there that work.

    I find myself asking this question, do I sell my customers more equipment that might not work in 6 months times and get excuses and no fixes.

    have to say its sad that i don't really care about Texecom Connect until they fix there existing app.

    lets be honest, it hasnt worked for someyime and the apparent we will fix it isnt happening, instead we are expecxted to pay out on new kit to get the bot so oldone fixed.

    I was once told by Texecom the method for the notifications was going to be the same, so i don't have high hopes.

    Hi Paul Texecom published on there forum today that Texecom Connect notifications will carry the disclaimer not a guarantee!

    That means until its proven reliable we wont be offering it.

    LOL not surprising though, they have to cover their own asses.

    So in your experienced opinion then for the average house (not mansion) what is the most failsafe and as reliable as possible way to be advised of an alarm status without breaking the bank? A GSM dialler as long as you get good signal coverage or is there anything better? cheers.

    without paying for a monitored alarm system your options are limited.

    Don't forget the problem in the main part with the Texecom system isnt signals getting to the server, its getting from the server to your device.

    I would always say, its better to have more than one coms unit/method in case one fails. In general next to ip coms, the gsm is probably the next cheapeat option and it will allow remote control on most systems by sending commands.
