last security system i had was the Fortress Alarm System.
but it was crap, all sensors were wireless, which is fine,but it never alerted me if a battery was low or dead, 25% of the time i would open the door and forget to turn off alarm and it didnt even come on.
it had a sim card in it and it called/texted when alerted, but it called / texted one number at time, so by the time it texted and called one person it was like 2 minutes wasted.

im looking for something reliable for a business.
would need 1-2 motion sensors (1 for office 1 for shop)
8 door sensors
the main system
would like it to connect via wifi and sim (so the call has a backup)
also would like it to notify me when batteries are low on either of the sensors
and would like to know if there is a door open (i.e. if a door not closed, system wont activate, or will warn me)

The alarm side of this forum does not get much traction.

See this thread for a few recommendations.

I hardwired 16+ devices (window/door contacts, glass break detectors, Bosch Tri blue LED motion detectors) and purchased a DSC 1832 system.
Re-enforce your front door would be my first step and rather economical: new security strike plate with 3" long screws type of thing.
