About 10 years ago I wanted to start a subscription based automation company with a buddy of mine, but we didn't have the start up capital to do it. I was a loyal Comcast customer for over 20 years. About 8 months ago I switched from ADT to Xfinity home security. 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.

The price you pay for monthly monitoring depends upon which method your system uses to connect. Rural customers often pay more for services. With Protect America, they pay less than other customers, because the landline monitoring package is the cheapest option available. ADT remains one of the most traditional home security brands on the market, but the company has updated its packages with a Pulse line of smart home devices. They’ve also partnered with other brands like Nest and Samsung SmartThings, so it’s easy to find what type of home security system you’re looking for. They’ve also been known to add in perks like free installations for low tier packages, and freebies like a Nest Thermostat with the right video setups. However, reading the fine print is important: ADT monitoring has some of the most restrictive contracts in the business. Most DIY home security providers offer monthly professional monitoring for agents to watch after your home at all times. When a home security system is professionally monitored, a specialist from the monitoring company is ready to respond when sensors are triggered. If any activity triggers the alarm, a professional will attempt to contact you and alert emergency responders to your home. The cost of professional monitoring may range from $10/mo.
