    I was doing a rough wire electrical inspection in a gutted house.
    one that's worth $65,000 and there putting in $125,000.
    a three floor unit with two out door baloneys. one on the second one on the
    third.

    I find five wires for the alarm system all on the first floor.
    One to the front door contact, One to the front door area horn, One to the
    front door area for a PIR, one to the back door.

    No key pad upstairs, No PIR up stairs, No smokes.
    No contacts on either door upstairs.
    And they call this a system.

    Ah Sounds like a typical "Free" installation. Some people just don't get
    it, you get what you pay for.

    That's Probably why the word "baloney" poped up too.
    It's synonymous with "free"

    We had a customer who *only* had protection on the air conditioning vents on
    the roof. This was dictated by the insurance company. No sensors anywhere
    else. Not on doors. No motions.

    Everyone at the alarm company thought this was silly of course.

    Well darned if some "highly intelligent" burglar didn't drop down through
    the A/C and get caught!

    We had a burglar like that hit several stores in a row, had to be an inside
    job since you'd have to know if you could get out of the ductwork...I filled
    my client's metal ductwork with several pounds of carpet tacks and contacted
    the airhandler access hatches on silent burg zone (trouble by day, silent
    alarm by night).

    ouchy!
