People on the net are generally more informed. We can see that at $220, the alarm is a good value.
The general public may not know the features that the alarm includes, and the lack of technical/mechanical expertise required for installation :).
If the salesperson mentions the alarm during the sale, the customer may simply think the salesperson is simply trying to sell them unneeded add-ons that they make more commission on.. and are therefore more inclined to not even listen to all the details.
