This form allows you to price
out your own alarm system on line. This form is a tool which
you can use to calculate the approximate cost of the alarm
system you would like to have installed. You will also find it
helpful when comparing prices with other Alarm companies. The
actual price may be different from that shown due to many
reasons ie discounts, price changes, etc... however, it will
give you a good idea what to expect. The price shown assumes
hard wired devices, that your monitoring fee will be
$16.95/month + Tax and it includes the $180.00 basic package.
Most homes 2000 Sq ft
