Hola. I've been an Iris user since last fall (2013) and so far haven't found a lot of use out of it. I have the safe & secure package and I ordered an aditional door sensor. We had someone break into our home via the garage door last year and that's what prompted this (after much research on self-monitoring security systems). I'm considering adding an outdoor camera so I can view the front door and garage entry area. Admittedly, I haven't played with the magic rules. So, maybe I should look into that before writing the system off as a novelty.
