said by IowaCowboy:It cannot be disabled by throwing it into the toilet or smashing it. If the backend server does not receive a disarm signal after a certain period of time after an entry delay starts or a perimeter zone is tripped an alarm signal is sent by the backend server to the central monitoring station.
Hopefully they'll follow Comcast and offer the Home Automation/Control offering without the monitored security portion.
For the security portion I prefer traditional alarm systems that are made by companies like DSC or Honeywell/Ademco and monitored by local central stations. The panel used by Comcast/TWC is known by security professionals as "toilet alarms" as they can be disabled by throwing the controller in the nearest toilet.
I am seriously considering the home automation offering by Comcast but I have my security through a local company.
