keypad placement, entry delays, and key fobs

    Hello again. I've been thinking a lot about keypad placement, entry
    delays, and key fobs.
    I have ocd and I would go bonkers worrying about accidentally pushing
    the disarm on a key fob after I go out the door. So I've decided to
    keep them in house.

    My next concern is entry delays. A lot of people like 30-45 second
    entry delays. Thats way to long for someone to be in your house before
    a alarm. I think anything less than a instant alarm is to long for a
    stranger to be in your house especially after reading that a lot of
    intruders come right through the front door.

    I know a key fob would be great for solving this kind of problem but
    as I said before I don't like to carry them out of the house. We enter
    through the garage or the front door. I was thinking of installing a
    5828v in the garage but was wondering what the operating temps on
    these are? Our coldest winter nights are -10 and hottest days go to
    around 105.

    For the front door which is usually only used for entry I could put a
    5827. Only problem is there is no feedback from this keypad. I could
    just tell my girlfriend to enter the code 2-3 times to make sure it
    works and just keep her phone on in case of a false alarm.

    Has anyone else been successful on using a no entry delay system?

    First, the buttons on the fobs have to be held for about two seconds so
    accidentally activating them is harder than you think. Also, you only
    have to be careful until you are 150-200 feet from your house, then they
    generally won't work anymore (it's not impossible for them to get more
    range but not by much).

    A system with no delay is a noisy pain in the ass and I strongly
    encourage you not to do it that way. You can set it for instant or max
    if you ever desire, but for day to day use the delay.

    The 5827's are crap (my opinion only - okay, mine and all the other guys
    I work with)

    How about only one delay door...the garage to house, and make it a shorter
    delay?
