Alarm System Monitoring.

There are three monitoring options which depend on your current alarm status:

1) If you have an alarm system in your home and we can program it for our central station your monitoring cost is just $16.95/month with a 36 month contract. We will test all of your existing doors, windows, etc... making sure they are in working order for no additional cost. In most cases we can determine whether your equipment is compatible over the phone and the re programming takes less than two hours.  This option does not include the installation of any equipment nor does it include service to repair your system if it  is not presently working.

 2) If we need to install new equipment so your system can communicate with our  central station your monitoring cost will still be $16.95/month with a 36 month contract. We will install a new basic control panel, 1 keypad, and backup battery for $99.00(any additional equipment needed will incur a cost). We will test and connect all of your working existing doors, windows, etc... for no additional cost.  The Installation of this new equipment usually takes less than four hours. This option does not include the installation of any equipment (other than that listed above) nor does it include service to repair your system or any part of your system if it is not presently working.

3) If you do not have an alarm system in your home we will install The Basic package for $180 ($300 for wireless) plus tax and your monitoring cost will be $16.95/month plus tax with a 36 month contract.
