Cove Security System vs SimpliSafe - thoughts?

Hi All,

I've had SS for 5 years and have found it to be reliable.  I'm purchasing a home and looking elsewhere given the customer service of SS decreasing significantly.  I tried to call the other day to deal with a keypad that died and after waiting on hold for 45 min gave up.  

Does anyone have any experiences with Cove Security?  The only downside I can see is that you can only have one keypad, and no integrated camera.

Any thoughts??? Thank you!

And I don't think you can have any external sirens, and it looks like the thing which sends the alarm signal and the siren is the keypad, which means that it is easily findable and destroyable.

Nest (Google) is getting out of the security business (Some sort of agreement with ADT)

I know a couple of people on Vivint, they seem OK with it.

But the only two I personally trust, are Ring and SimpliSafe.  And each have their own set of issues.

PS:  I forgot about Arlo, but I don't know, it's SO camera-centric, that I suspect without a really fast internet connection, it might underperform in an emergency situation.

NONE of the systems are 100% ideal.
