Default Cost of Monthly Security System?

I am under contract to purchase a home () and it has a full security system installed in it.

Do any of you have security monitoring on your homes...and if so, what should I expect to pay per month for it? On ADT's website, all I can find is where they offer install+service prices...but the system, a newer one, is already in place.

Also, is it worth it in regards to insurance premium discounts?

The cost is pretty reasonable. My power company is an electric co-op and they offer security for under $20/month. When we 1st bought our house, we had ADT and I wanna say it was around 25-35/month.

I pay 57/quarter...pretty cheap. As an aside I also put a wireless lead on my liquor cabinet to protect my booze when the boys are older, lol.

Default Re: Cost of Monthly Security System?

Cost of security monitoring varies wildly (sometimes even within the same company) I have seen a small local company handle monitoring for as little as $10 a month, the kicker is that he only offers that on systems he installs, and his system will cost you more "upfront" because he isn't recouping a large portion of his costs on inflated monitoring costs...from what I have seen, you should expect to pay $25-35 a month for monitoring (month to month, no contract) however if you are interested in a long term contract you will be able to find it between 15-20 a month with promotional pricing

Has anyone set up a security camera system on their house? I'm thinking of buying one to watch for miscreants who might wander into my yard.

As a fellow Gamecock, I am here to help one and all! I own a security company in town. Have for almost 8 years. We sell and install residential and commercial security and do a ton of cameras. You may have seen some of our many cameras on campus! Please ask me anything you may want to know. Thanks!

My brother needs a job. He'd probably hang out at your house when you're not there free-of-charge if you give him access to the food in your fridge.

We have installed many residential camera systems. You may pay a little bit more than the junk you find at SAMs ect. But I refuse to sell/ install junk. We both would be wasting our time. Pm me for any questions. Thanks!

I think he was referring to the fact your post was either fatfingered badly or the autocorrect made it very difficult to understand. I had to read it several times but what I believe you were saying is

One of the neat things about having a good camera system in your home is that we can set it up for remote viewing and will connect the dvr to your tv. If you hear or see something outside you can just grab your remote and take a look! If your away we have smart phone apps that are amazing!

I'm just tired of all the fake door knocking/ telemarketing ADT reps that lie to customers that give good security firms a bad name! We are the real deal. If anyone on Cockytalk needs help just pm me and I will take care of you!

to carolinafan13
is there a monthly cost for the ability to remote access your system/cameras? are they accessed thru your (or a manufacturers) servers/host, or are they directly accessed by the client device?
