8hrs last? rechargeable what?
when it says the alarm host battery lasts 8hrs, does that mean that we can only leave on vacation or away from the house for just 8hrs?? what exactly needs to be plugged in to a home regular phone line and/or the wall electricity (AC socket)? thx!

No. The battery lasts 8 hours in the event of a power failure or in the event that the thief cuts power to the house. The system runs of house power, so your vacation can be as long as you want.
as long as power is at your outlet, your unit runs on that. if power goes out, then it uses the internal battery.
the control panel needs a power outlet and it also needs a phone line.

Under normal circumstance the alarm system is plugged into a standard AC wall outlet for power. If your power goes out for some reason, the internal battery will take over and should last about 8hrs. Connecting the unit to a phone line is optional, the phone connection is used to dial preset numbers and play a recording in the event your alarm is triggered.
I read the answer to this question and it said that it means that if you had a power failure then the charge would last for 8 hours, but when the power came back on it would reset and charge itself again. So, I think you can be gone as long as you like. Hope that helps.
