It's also disappointing that you can't integrate lighting controls into the system (having lights automatically turn on when the siren goes off would do even more to scare an intruder away). The system can, on the other hand, be integrated with a Nest thermostat. There is a Myfox IFTTT channel, but it's apparently not available to consumers living outside of Europe at this time.
Finally, the Myfox Home Security starter kit is expensive since it can monitor just one door or window, and it becomes very expensive if you want to monitor more and/or want to provide key fobs to more than a couple of family members.
