I second that. He and Dave did an excellent job on our security system and camera system.

I think the best system is to not have anything worth stealing. But, I can see where a motion detector that turns on an outside light may discourage an intruder. If someone breaks in, call 911 and eliminate the middleman, because that is all the central monitoring people will do.

Cool Gov.Minnesota

I like the one that the past President of Minnesota had over his ranch entrance: "WE DON'T CALL 911"

I really don't understand what a central monitoring service, with a monthly fee, can do for you that you cannot do for yourself with a cell phone.

The SimpliSafe monitoring got the Sumter County Sherrif to my door in under 5 minutes not once but twice. One of those times two Sheriff’s Deputies showed up. Both were self inflicted false alarms but none the less they showed up quickly.

Default Home Security

Whoever breaks into your home will head to the master bedroom because that is where they will find money, jewelry , guns, etc. Install a motion sensor with a loud alarm. Once it goes off they will take off. Monitoring will only take place after they are long gone so it is a unnecessary expense.
I've had security systems for years and they can be a problem. In Boca Raton Fl I had 2 false alarms that the police responded to and then notified me after that I would have to pay for any more.
