I like Brinks...with motion detection, glass break detectors , and the reg window and door stuff
Who cares about some deductable? If you have a Brinks system, the BG always runs away once the alarm goes off. I've seen the commercials. :dancingbananaFYI, ADT is by far and away the top security company in the world. They do 92% of the government monitoring, they even monitor Brinks trucks :rolf, yeup they monitor Brinks. They have 7 North American Monitoring stations, Brinks has 1. If you have a loss during a break in, ADT pays 500.00 towards your deductable ADT = :dancingbanana Brinks = :thumbsdwn

I can make a call in less than 20 seconds!LOL, you're right! Oh by the way the actual time that it takes Brinks to call the homeowner is closer to a full commercial break 1:30 - 2:00 minutes while ADT is rated #1 under 90 seconds :deadhorse
The one time I forgot to turn the alarm off, not counting the 45 seconds to activate the alarm on the garage door opening, they called the home phone at about 45-50 seconds. I didn't hear the land line call as I was outside the garage at the truck [ and there's no loud alarm bell installed to scare an intruder away at the house per my request ]. My cell phone rang and caller ID showed it was Brinks within another 45 seconds from the time the caller ID on the land line showed they called after I checked the timeline. Total time after the 45 seconds we're given to shut it off once the garage opens to make the 2 calls [ to the house and then my cell ] was about 90 seconds.LOL, you're right!

If you don't mind can you PM or post the info? I'd be interested to know this!If your handy do it yourself. I had a company that was gonna install a wireless system in my house for free if my credit was good enough and I signed a 3 year contract. After I did some quick research on the internet I found the exact same products on line for about $350.00 and I even found the company they were going to use for monitoring. I could sign up directly with the monitoring company for less than $10.00 a month with only a one year contract and buy the system on line and install it myself. Just a though, as far as I know the residential alarm companies pass there monitoring off to a company that just does monitoring. If I was going to install an alarm system that's the way I'd do it, after the initial install you only hear from the local alarm company if you don't send them money.
