Home security
« on: May 11, 2021, 05:02:54 PM »
Looking for a Security system monitoring company that folks have been happy with.
I called today to get a key-fob reprogrammed for a Ademco keypad, and was told 130.00 per hour min, 1 hr, + 40.00 trip fee. Iíve been using these guys since 1995. Ouch.  :yike:
 Iíll start looking for a good YouTube video.

Monitor your own house.

Security companies are going to be a thing of the past. Most Le agencies won't go to alarms anymore.

I have a multi camera Arlo system that I can live stream and is also motion activated. Records as well.
Way better than a standard alarm system.

We have a Ring system and are happy with it. I also have a half dozen hidden trail cams around the place.

I had the same experience with a security company here in Spokane. $40 dollar trip fee........ their office is 3 miles from my house. I told them to pound sand and asked them if they wanted to pick up their equipment from the porch or should I just throw it in the trash? So many other options available now days.

I bought Wyze cameras... They are for indoor use, but you can purchase a cover for them and use them outdoors. They are relatively cheap, and the app for your phone is free. It records video, has a microphone, etc. You can also look at live video on your phone when you are away. I got all of my stuff online, but I have seen them at home depot as well. As a backup, I have 2 large dogs, a gate, and a hardened chain with lock.... :chuckle:

I have a combination of simpli safe for some stuff and Arlo for the rest. Both are super easy and much cheaper ways then a company installing.

Old school... Our dog will eat ya and might weigh more than a thief as well.  Also other covert measures in place.  A good sign helps too, like one involving owners use of firearms maybe??   I feel a good relationship and "lookout" agreement with neighbors is HUGE as well.
