So, what happens when the power goes out?

If you're inquiring about the security of the keypad deadbolt, it's powered by its own battery. In the event of a power outage, it won't be able to send you an alert if someone enters the correct code and unlocks the door, or if someone repeatedly enters an incorrecto code (suggesting that someone might be tampering with it). If the lock's battery fails, the keypad goes dead; but you can still lock and unlock the door using a conventional key.

If the power goes out, then of course the rest of the system goes dead with it; but that doesn't introduce any more of a security vulnerability than a power outage would cause otherwise.

I can't compare the two, but I am aware x-10 has similar systems that require no web subscription.  They also appear cheaper and easy to use.
