Combine Ring Alarm with your Stick Up Cam or other Ring devices, and manage your home security from one central location - the free Ring app.

£215.98 in store Costco. Slightly cheaper than online.
Given the recent allegations about Ring from an Amazon employee and the discovery that their doorbell and camera apps contain all sorts of trackers and other stuff, I'd be thinking twice about using them to provide a security system.

I like the idea of these but the keypad is hideous, looks like it's made of Lego, wouldn't have that on my wall.

I guess this could be a risk for those crazy enough to add voice activation to their alarm, if the Alex device is within shouting distance [shrug]

way better to have a standalone system that can send a message to your mobile via a mobile network sim card.

Such a solution does not rely on mains power (battery backup) or an internet solution (wifi going down / being jammed)

No. Requires a PIN number.
No external deterrent, most crims just cut the telephone line from outside your house if they are worried about things like these.

You'd be better buying a dummy alarm box with LED, this will put them off and they will just go to the next house.

You focus on an Amazon employee snooping on your garden shrubs at 3 in the morning...the rest of us will focus on the genuine peace of mind the Ring cameras and alarm provides.

How many people actually bother to investigate an alarm going off at a neighbouring house? They may take a quick look out the window, but then they'll go on to other things.

As for cutting the phone line, you have two safety measures: 1) if you have the Ring plan, it will switch to the cellular backup; 2) if you don't have a plan and the line is cut, you'll at least have some sort of warning that the alarm is not online.
I need to know if I can buy whichever alarm system and then somehow having it communicating directly to the police with some kind of priority response. Does such a service exist?Or ADT/Verisure and alike are the only alternatives?
And if a service connected directly to the police doesn't exist for us poor mortals, is the same kind of service available with ADT/Verisure etc as a standalone option without paying them for any camera installation and so on?
I just want to build my home security system the way I like it, having notifications and that kind of service available at the cheapest price from the most reliable source.

I don't get why you say relies on wifi when it has the sim backup? I have a ring doorbell anyway so the cost isnt too bad especially considering you get and extended warranty on all your devices

Not really bothered about Amazon looking at my cameras - I have similar web connected security system(s) at home.

What's concerning is the amount of third party trackers in the Ring apps sending data on what's happening in your home to companies without your knowledge or permission.

What about a quad sim 4G router with auto switching of signal and a UPS so if someone pulls the power or internet it’s still got cellular backup x 4 with automatic alerting back to the owner to advise multiple sims have stopped working?
