No contract home security – is it possible? As with any serious purchase, when you’re looking for a home security system, it makes sense for you to look at several security system installation companies before making a final decision. Consumers have more choices than ever, and with that comes a lot of decisions that a homeowner needs to make. Two of the most basic choices to consider are: is your home going to be monitored and if so, is the monitoring on a contract?
MONITORED OR NOT MONITORED?
You can find two types of security systems: professionally monitored and unmonitored. In the former, when an alarm goes off, a professional monitoring company receives a notification and then attempts to contact you and, if need be, your local emergency services. An unmonitored system leaves all the work up to you. That means you need to be on call, day and night, during work and vacation time, and ready to determine whether police, fire departments, or other emergency services need to be dispatched. Then, you need to make that call yourself. It’s a big difference, and a professionally monitored system is fundamentally more secure than an unmonitored or self-monitored one.
CONTRACT OR NO CONTRACT?
Monitored systems also tend to have a service contract, which locks you into paying an often-pricey monthly fee for a set amount of time, typically one to five years. No-contract systems, which allow you to pay for monitoring services on a month-to-month basis rather than committing to a long-term arrangement, are usually only available on cheap DIY systems. Normally, if your system is a month to month, you pay more for the up-front installation of the hardware.
