I had looked into two other companies that offered a discounted system for a long term monitoring contract. What I found is that they were so bare bones that they didn't really have the protection I wanted and when I added those things in that I viewed as essential (like every door and window having a contact), the cost was more than any discount I could have possibly gained. I had sent two other vendors packing when I got their quotes so you can imagine my surprise when I found out my HVAC provider could do this. I was getting my Air Conditioner serviced by
The 2GIG security system
I chose to install many more features than just the door and window contacts and plan to do even more in the future. I had no idea any of these features existed in an alarm as things have come a long way since I was younger. I had them install leak detectors that will instantly alert me if one of my toilets, sinks, AC or hot water heater leaks. We also installed a monitored fire alarm and got a panic button for my wife to keep around that calls the police instantly. I skipped on the HVAC control as 2GIG doesn't have the humidity control ability yet but when they do, I will probably add it in. I did get a coded door lock for the front and a garage door remote/monitor so I can let people in and out when I am not there and also check remotely if I left anything unlocked. The system even has a setting that will track if I go outside a GPS range that it will automatically lock the doors. I haven't turned that on, but thought was pretty cool.
2GIG offers a video service as well as motion activated pictures. I did one of the motion sensors that snaps pictures and will probably add more. You can scale how "big" something is before it takes a photo. I had it set relatively sensitive when I first had the alarm installed and our Boston Terrier got out of her cage and set off the alarm. It is a pretty funny snapshot of her being a bad dog.
For the video, I upgraded to an entire system but most people would probably be satisfied with what comes on the 2GIG system. My next door neighbor has a DVR system and successfully used it to apprehend two guys who broke into his car in the driveway about a year ago. This was important to me so I spent a little more to get the separate system. These are all wired into the house and I am amazed how efficiently they got these up, especially since the locations were not easy to get to. It has its own app that I can rewind up to about a month and a half.
