Before buying the ADT security kit with panel and sensors, I had thought that I could attach the panel to the wall and it would run on batteries for lengthy (one week or more) periods of time. That appears not to be the case. The batteries appear to be more of a 24 hour backup and should be plugged in with power as much as possible.
The question is, what is everyone doing in their setup for plugging in the ADT Security Panel? Are you wall mounting it, hiding your wires and recessing the outlet while recessing the panel itself or are you doing something different? My wife and I are trying to decide the best way to make the panel look aesthetically pleasing as possible.
