We have ADT and they say it's cheaper & easier to go wireless.

Certainly easier for them ;-)

Do you seem to have more problems with false alarms, 'missed' trips, etc. than you would expect with a wired alarm? Heard about a lot of problems with wireless alarms a few years back, wondered if they got the problems fixed.

A few years ago, no one would have thought a jammer for a wireless alarm was feasible. Of course, that was before the days of crooks installing cameras and touchpads on ATMs. Sadly, it doesn't take an electrical engineer to aquire a jammer for a wireless alarm anymore. Not sure how common that would be, though, and how great a threat.
