Took a risk with this alarm system w/o knowing much of the seller and the few technical specs provided. Well after receiving and testing a while it has met my expectations...especially for the price.
Some things to note which the seller forgot to mention. It comes w/ 2 horns which is essential for any alarm system (one outdoor for your neighbors to hear and one indoor for yourself). The installation instructions are sparse and seem hand made in a personal computer but it is clear enough so I haven't needed to contact them.
Of all the 30 plus components I received, 1 of the 5 motion detectors wasn't working. I didn't contact the seller to replace it since 4 is more than enough.
Programming the unit took less than an hour. Because all the units are wireless, you will need to replace batteries on everything which will be a real pain. The instructions don't say how long they last. But its better than running wires all over the house.
All in all, its everything I expected to provide a good deterrent from your opportunistic thieves. One of the reviewers here gave it only 1 star since it isn't foolproof. Well what do you expect from a $320 system? Yes, if a thief breaks a window and the alarm sounds, he can start searching the house for the keypad and horns and disable them, but I'm guessing they'd just split instead of taking the chance of getting caught (unless you live in the boondocks where neighbors will not here the alarm). You also get a phone call from the system that the alarms went off, so you can take appropriate action. Yes a pro will be able to disable it but i bet he can disable most of the other alarm systems out there as well...

I purchased the AAS-500 system, which appears to be the same as the 600, but with fewer sensors. The installation instructions were perfectly clear. All the door sensors came with the batteries already installed, which was nice. The motion detectors came with the (9v) batteries, and were easily installed. I got this system to replace a 1996 system from Radio Shack which had failed. A major difference with this system (in addition to the much better quality) is that the outside siren can be mounted without worrying about physically connecting it to the console.

Prior to installing sensors I read the entire instruction manual then made a list (map) of what was going to be installed, and where, and numbered each sensor per the instructions. I wrote the numbers on each sensor. I then activated each one and tested them, one by one to make sure everything worked properly. Then, I mounted each sensor per the map I had made. One of the door sensors failed to work. This is when I discovered that the magnet must be placed on the right side of the sensor containing the antenna. I removed the sensor and replaced the backing with one of the extra sensors and mounted it with the antenna pointing down. I should have tested this aspect before actually mounting it and ruining the sticky tape.

The motion detectors have a one page instruction sheet, which really does not need to be read. If you do read it, you will find it pretty choppy; very poor English.

In summary, this is an excellent product, very good quality, good instructions and a major step forward in terms of technology over the system I was previously using.

I purchased the AAS Wireless 600 as a cost effective method of protecting my property without the cost of a monthly charge and to get the components I really wanted. I got enough components to have some spares, should they be necessary in the future. The system arrived in a timely manner and I made a general map of where I wanted the components installed. I laid the system out on the kitchen table and labeled them so that I knew exactly where they were to go. The programming of the controller was extremely easy and the installation was straightforward. The system performs better than I expected and I am more than satisfied with my purchase. I really like the fact that the system will call my cell from the land line in the house and tell me that something has set the system off. The American Alarm System rewards customers for a 4 star or 5 star rating, but I am truly satisfied with system and recommend it to my friends and family. I think it is every bit as good as the expensive systems, without the monthly charge and contracts..

I read most reviews here prior purchasing this systems.
I bought this one to replace the current expensive system in my home that is inoperative recently !
First, Let's me conclude:

4* for the product
5* for the customer care

I am happy with the purchase and here is my wish list of improvement to make this Alarm system much more better.

a/ No close loop monitoring. The system can not tell what door (sensor)is open prior the Alarm SET. (You may think that the whole house is armed)
b/ Once you failed programming a sensor, you must repeat the process for all sensors again. It is very straight forward, but tedious and time consuming.
c/ The double sticky tape on sensor are useless, you have to use the good one; otherwise, sensors may fall (at night!) and the alarm will wake you up!!!
c/ Enable and Disable chirps sound the same, unlike the car's alarm. One chirp is ON, two chirps is OFF. SO you can't tell what state the Alarm is in.

Problems encountered:

a/ I have 3 sensors failed during programming, but 25 sensors are provided; I don't bother to get replacements.
b/ The systems went off by itself , just 3 minutes after ARMED. Remedy: Deleted and reprogrammed all sensors. So far so good

Customer care:

Sent email, got quick reply offering a Refund
Since it was installed, I decided to keep it give it a try

This system is very very basic one. However, with the price tag, it sure will do the job deterring intruder until he/she can find the Main Panel located !!!

Edited 5/24/2011
After 6 month, most of the sensors started dying (20 of them!!!), alarm went off in middle of the night. To pinpoint which one, you have to remove one by one, this is a very frustrated process. You will not want to arm it any more!
Save your money, get a better, more expensive one for long run. I re-rated 2 stars as of today.
