free home security systems

We had confusion on if I had a break in then whether or not I would have to fill out a police report, turn it in to them and they would provide a recording of all my cameras for whatever period of time I deemed necessary. The security measures are worthless I’ve spoken to numerous police officers. I was never rude and tried to treat each person respectfully. Any crook with a 3rd grade education knows that if you cut the easily “accessible wire” the system ceases to function. Also by the way trying to access the cameras remotely can be a joke in that most times you get a message that says “cameras not available” but I'm guessing this is due to poor 3g / 4g service. Plan on accessing real time camera feed via wifi access only. Do some research before you get any home security. Agreed, partially. I and my fellow installers like to make a very good point that after that two years your monitoring rate does increase $10. But it is still less than a comparable system with ADT. And if you've read the fine print on the ADT contract, after that three year mark, unless they manage to come out, add something and convince you to sign another 3 year contract.

home security comparisons

The equipment looks great and works great. Perhaps they weren't so good a while ago but now I don't see any big mishaps. Now just about all Comcast customers have access to their still fairly new security system. I only signed up for it because they offered it for $10 a month with my TV and Internet package for a one year contract. It's very toy like and seems like a joke because it's relying on your internet connection and tablet screen they give you. Only three door/window sensors were including with the plan along with a motion sensor. I live in a 2 story condo so this was almost perfect for downstairs but still left my kitchen window short of one. The motion sensor is the most important to me. Still, what makes me feel not secure is: knowing someone can easily cut my visable cable line on the outside wall they installed, custoner service is slow and horrible, and knowing that the tablet screen has connection issues from time to time that requires me to be home to reset it which defies the purpose of having the security system. The technician who installed the security system I had a bad feeling about from the start, I didn't trust him. Just before he left, he asked if he could use the restroom upstairs which is where the rooms are.

fire detection alarm

I think every company has their stories of technician no shows, false alarms, no responses etc. and I just tried to weed out the dumb people from the actual product. All in all I would say to let security companies be security companies aka ADT, Vivint and let internet companies be internet companies and don't get the two combined. My brother did get Comcast when he moved into his new house though and I saw the equipment, it did look good. These kits are typically but not always more affordable than a professional installation, while still giving you the necessary devices to protect any home. Plus, there are no long term contracts to worry about.
