fire alarm system companies
ADT is an established security company that offers equipment tied to a subscription based monitoring service, most of which will require professional installation that the company can provide. Like Brinks, ADT pushes for a three year initial contract, which afterwards is renewed monthly, but unlike all the other firms listed it's not very transparent about pricing. While other companies are happy to offer a single fee per product/package, ADT pushes on custom
sales for custom packages, which means it’s difficult to make a direct price comparison. Frontpoint Security sells itself on ease of use, with a DIY home surveillance and security kit based on free standing sensors that don't require any wall mounting, drilling, wires, etc. However, the equipment is sold as part of a contract term package, and pricing will depend on the period committed to upfront. Plans cost between $34. 99 to $49. 99 a month, with the cost of equipment discounted to $99 if you commit to a three year contract. Like its rivals we’ve just mentioned, Vivint offers a combined equipment and monitoring service package, with everything run through a cellular network with backup batteries. However, Vivint SmartHome is something of a premium option, requiring a five year term and monthly prices that can stack
up. Even so, some argue that you get what you pay for, and Vivint certainly has a strong reputation in the security industry.
