Can I have my security system send me emails or texts when my spce is violated but not send calls to the police?

Re: home security

Yes you can, but it will take some effort to set this up.  Configure all your sensors as interior sensors (which you can do). Then set up a rule to email or text when any sensor is triggered (you may want to do this for each sensor so the mesage will identify the sensor) when the alarm is set.  Then when you leave and set your alarm, set it as "stay", that way no sensors will trigger the alarm call, but you will receive the emails and texts.
