"System works as promised. Installation and service were on-time and very professional. Cost was similar to systems provided by national chains but much more robust and a more secure system.

-Robert B.

"I chose the GE security system initially because I could install it myself, if install is really the right word. It was more of just place and set, which is" really convenient. I actually switched from another security company. I was a little skeptical of GE at first, but wireless actually works better, in my opinion. It took way less time to set up, and there are no wires, so it looks better as well. (I never really liked having wires open and visible.) The other thing I like better about GE is I could choose exactly what security system pieces I wanted. There are a lot of windows in my house, so I got some glass breaking sensors, and I also got the wireless camera, so I can keep tabs on my home from the Internet and on my cell phone. I really like this security system, because I can also arm and disarm my entire system by using my remote that attaches to my keychain. So I t have to worry about accidentally setting it off. The whole process was really easy to set up, from start to finish. Once I called , they got me going, and then it only took about 20 minutes. I m not lying! I know I sound like a commercial right now, but really, I mean what I say. It was easier than I expected, and I still get the security and peace of mind that I m well taken care of. The GE system is monitored by , so I get great equipment, and a great monitoring system. I t have any complaints, and I ve not had any problems, so in my book, GE delivers. Not to sound like a broken record, but with a security system, the one thing it should give you is security, and I feel like GE actually does that. If you couldn t tell, I m a big fan.

-Ben B.

How Much Does it Cost to Install a Home Security System?

Securing your home is important, but how much does it cost install a security system?

Angie's Answers

I second the original question (still unanswered). Speaking as someone who logged in today to try to find an attorney, I see this category as one that's exactly what I have my Angie's List membership for:

1. It's important that I find a good one
2. I'm not an expert enough to know myself who is a good one
3. The industry is full of advertisements and misinformation
4. I wish I knew what experiences other people have had

I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.

I'm not sure Angie et. al. want you to have a complete answer to this question. By re-subscribing at the Indiana State Fair in 2012, I think I paid $20.00 per year for a multi- year subscription. Maybe even less. At the other extreme--and I hope my memory isn't faulty about this--I think the price, for my area, for ONE year was an outrageous $70.00. And they debited me automatically without warning. I had to opt out of that automatic charge. I like Angie's List, but if some of the companies they monitor behaved the way they do in this respect, they'd be on some sort of Pages of Unhappiness. I'll be interested to see if this comment gets published or censored out of existence.

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.


You have to put your self in the shoes of a business that is in business to turn a profit of some sort. All businesses have different overhead which in turn decides what their bottom line would be on their services. I personally would not go with an unlicensed professional for this type of install. You are messing with gas, venting issues, electrical wiring{electric water heater} and updated code issues such as a drain pan and tempature and relief drain lines for heaters that currently do not have them. I do agree that there are some companies that are way out of line for their installs but most of these companies are the really big companies that have very high overheads  I would assume. Tank type water heaters have changed over the last several years and with these safety changes come bigger prices. The price of steel thanks to China is skyrocketing and tank type water heaters are made of steel. Most wholesale plumbing supply companies cannot match what the big box stores are selling at retail to consumers. I happen to think from research that heaters such as Rheem, Bradford White and AOSmith who have been in business forever make a better product than what you can buy in the big box outlets. You also have to take in consideration the location of the water heater that is being replaced. Is it in the house, basement, garage or attic. Most 40 and 50 gallon water heaters that are purchased in a plumbing wholesale store in Texas cost between 300-340 for a 6 year warranty heater with 6 year on parts and tank. Speaking of warranty. Most big box companies will take a least 24 hours to a week to get your warranty problem taken care of. Most reputable plumbing companies will give same day service if they installed the heater.

So lets break down a typical install at cost to a licensed plumber in Texas

Heater: $315, water shut off $6.50, water flex lines or unions to code $20, gas flex line and cut off to code $12, misc fittings $15, Total $368.50 Lets add a 35% profit which is some what low  for a business $129, Total 497.50

This doesnt  include permits, pan and drain or any venting issues. The vent must go from the heater to the outside of roof using double wall vent.

Cost of permit on average $60

Most plumbing companies allow for 3 hours of time for a water heater. This includes picking the new one up. Delivering out to house. Draining and removing old water heater. Hauling off old heater. Installing new heater up to code. Going down to city and pulling permit.

Average Labor charges for heater installs $400

That would make this install run without extras on any code issues $957.50

I just had a 50 gallon gas water heater installed in my house for $1200 but I needed a pan installed. I used a licensed plumber.




Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!

Home Security System reviews in Salt Lake City


I have always liked their service and I know I am safe with the monitoring. I find that when you need to speak with someone, they are able to answer all your questions and the customer service is very pleasant.

They were on time and courteous. They cleaned up after themselves. They installed the alarm system by all the windows and connected them with the door. They didn't follow-up on the paperwork, but overall it was a good job.
- Mohana R.

It has been working great, no problems. This is a very dependable company. We were told by my sister to use them. They also, have used this company and have been very happy, so we thought we would try them.

I have a great new system that is on pace with all of the great technology out there. I had cameras added, sensors for my garage doors, wireless updates (no need for a land line), integrated home locks (remote lock and unlock), and integrated thermostats.
I will be putting this system in 2-3 other spaces I have. The system just works, has a great ...More dashboard and web access. is amazing. He can answer all of your questions and does a great job in putting your safety first.
- Zeke D.

It took about an hour, which included my reading the instructions and taking the time to make sure I did it correctly. Very ! Because I had never used an alarm system and some of my motion sensor placements weren't adequate there were initially some false alarms (2-3). I had one of them focused on the stairs where my cat ...More ran up/down, so it would go off in the middle of the night randomly. They called me promptly and helped me figure out what the reason was, which took a couple of times. They were friendly and helpful as I tried to determine what the issue was. It didn't take long to figure out, so not a huge issue. I've had the system now for several months and have not had any problems with it at all, since the initial placement problem (my fault, not the system's). Great product and I would highly recommend Front Point to others looking for a good security system.
- Michele M.
