Default Shopping for alarm monitoring provider

OK - So my 3 yr monitoring contract is completed. Although i am ok with my current provider I though I'd throw this out to see if anyone has monthly monitoring costing and provider suggestions.

Thanks in advance..

i'm switching to the monitoring centre once my contract is up. $10/mo with 6 months free, just have to pay to reprogram the current system. the longer you stay the more you save. i used them before - quite satisfied.

Hi.. My original contract was with VOXCOM who was bought out by Enbridge Home Essential Services

The 2 way feature works, we had a couple false alarms with the fire detector, and at one time I got a call on my cell.

It can be very easy to disable for anyone who thinks a little bit about how they are installed.

google time homie.

i doubt you'll get greg giving a tutorial on how easy it is to disable a specific brand of alarm - that would probably get that specific brand of alarm's lawyers involved...
