Not ready for prime time

Not by a long shot. You need to go to their site and read the community forum reviews before wasting money on this system. The alarm "sounder" wouldn't wake a sleeping child, there's no way (other than turning on your phone, unlocking, launching the app) to tell if the system is armed or disarmed. There's no "immediate trip" in home mode, you can't add anything other than their hardware - their ZigBee choice (ZigBee with a proprietary stack) doesn't support any 3rd part hardware (unlike the zillions of zwave devices - what were they thinking) and if you lose cloud connectivity you lose your alarm system plain and simple. The only positive is their design and packaging is gorgeous - as an alarm system this is useless. Oh, and the app is buggy. Stay away.

New version crashes (updated)

Newest version keeps having popup that says upgrade is available (even though one isn't because I just upgraded to the newest version) then immediately crashes and will not open unless I delete and redownload then ignore the popup. Please come out with a patch to fix this bug. Otherwise the app is great when it worked before this update. 5 stars then but a patch is certainly needed.

Updated review: I see that with the new update you can now update the app without having to formally download it through the App Store. The issue seems to have been resolved as of now but hopefully I will not have the crashing issue in the future with the forced updates anymore. Overall the security system I love and the app is very intricate and streamlined in appearance. I have already recommended it to many friends.

Scout Alarm Fan

The Scout Alarm app is beautifully designed. A lot of thought went into the iOS app to make it integrate so well with the scout alarm system. Even though the scout alarm system was dreamed and built via crowd funding and a team of 6, they have certainly delivered. Any issue I have is promptly addressed and fixed by their support staff. New feature requests are considered and built if determined to be necessary to the customer base. I really like my scout alarm system and I am happy I have backed them for almost a year now waiting for the system. The iOS app works great with the system and I would recommend the system to anyone wanting an alarm system they can install themselves, feel secure, and not have to hire a professional to fish wires all over your house. Thanks Scout Alarm and keep up the good work!
