Installation was approximately $1300. and yearly monitoring fee is approximately $250. They took the time to do a thorough assessment of our house and presented options to us without insisting on unnecessary expenses. The alarm was installed as planned, the worker took care to run wires in a tidy fashion and to consult with us on where best to run the wires. Holes drilled into the walls were inconspicuous and the entire process took less than a day. The monitoring service has been excellent. The system has been running for a number of years - no complaints.
