Frequently Asked Questions About Security Systems with Professional Installation
Are security systems with professional installation recommended over self-installed security systems?
This really depends on your needs and what you’re looking for in a home security system. A security system with professional installation is better if you don’t feel like you’ll be able to properly install your system. On the other hand, a DIY security system may be the better solution if cost is your main concern, as most of those options are less expensive.
What can I expect to pay for my installation fee?
Not all providers who offer home security systems with professional installation require an installation fee, but it is typical. You could pay as little as $99 for installation or much more, it all depends on the provider and the equipment that needs to be installed.
What could I expect to pay for professional monitoring?
Professional monitoring typically ranges anywhere from $30/mo. to upwards of $55/mo. for providers that require professional installation.
What should I expect to pay for home security equipment?
Home security equipment can range anywhere from $99 to upwards of $2,000 depending on the package or equipment you choose to purchase.
Which is the best home security provider with professional installation for me?
This will depend on what you’re looking for, but here’s a good analysis of each to help you with your decision. Choose ADT if you’re looking for a provider with longevity in the industry and you want a long trial period. We would recommend Vivint if you’re looking for unique equipment and don’t mind paying more for your equipment. If you don’t want to pay anything upfront for your equipment and would like to have a locked monitoring rate over the life of your contract, we’d recommend Protect America. Choose Xfinity if you’re looking for a security camera with artificial intelligence, and you want to be able to watch your camera footage on TV. And finally, if you’d like access to Bluetooth arming & disarming, then we’d recommend Guardian Protection.
