    Recommend me a home alarm system

    Stupid website - 3rd time I've tried posting this now!

    Right, currently have a blink camera system outside the front. Only installed a week ago but already I've captured someone little **** trying to open my car and get in the garage. We've recently moved and the alarm system doesn't work.

    I'm after something with door sensors (will need about 5), remote activation and deactivation (either keyfob or app based) some sort of android notification, IFTTT support and a loud external alarm.

    Have looked at some yale systems but none offer IFTTT support, and although the cheaper 6200 looks good value, door sensors and key fobs cheap to add, theres no way of adding autodial or alerting me by phone.

    The fortress system gets you a lot of kit, but again no IFTTT support and autodial might not work in UK.

    The honeywell system no remote keyfob, no android or IFTTT support (which I thought was strange)

    Last one I've looked at, and the most promising so far although no external alarm is the iSmartAlarm. Currently £152 on amazon with a months wait (although seems to have been under £100 last year), has IFTTT support, easy to upgrade but has no external alarm, although adding satellite alarms outside might work? Failing that probably cheaper to just buy the yale 6200 system as well...

    Any others worthy of consideration, or own any of the above?

    My only experience of house alarms has been gained through here. My alarm started failing last year and thanks to the people on there I got mine working again.

    Thanks, been reading through several posts, looks like the Pyronix system is well regarded and offers far superior encryption to the ismart and honeywell etc.
