We have ADT and they say it's cheaper & easier to go wireless. They put sensors on the doors, then a glass break alarm in the center of the main floor. No more having to wire all the windows. The basement has a motion detector in case someone breaks in the window there and doesn't set off the main floor glass break. We keep the basement door closed all the time - so the dogs don't set off the motion detector.

Well, since that's the easiest for them to install, would you expect them to say anything else?

OK - so the glass break goes off. How do you know what window, in what room, broke? Or how about if someone leaves a window unlatched? No breakage at all to set off the alarm.
