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?

10 Questions to Ask Your Home Security Provider

The security of your home is important. Ask these questions before you make a hire.

, Alarms

You return home from work to find your door forced open. "Surely not a burglary!" you exclaim to yourself.

Alarms, , Electrical

Dear Angie: How often do I need to replace my hard-wired smoke detectors? And who should I hire to do this? Our 15-year-old system has five detectors. A few are chirping, and it doesn’t stop even when we replace the batteries. – Michael G., Benbrook, Texas

In considering residential security improvements, most people think in terms of locks and alarms.

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 Chandler


Basically they give you a couple sticker pads and sensors and have you put them on your door. They send me a broken panel, so a new one had to be sent to me but it never arrived. When I called to complain, the nasty lady gave me an attitude accusing me of lying and how it has been sent to me and I should have it. And when I tried to cancel the service, they said I owe them over 700 dollars since the contract doesn't end for another year. This is just a scam company. don't bother.
- Jae J.

Just as expected. Bill explained the entire process before starting and made an additional security recommendation.

home security monitoring via phone land-line provided by
Chandler Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
for approximately 15 years. About 2 years ago I asked
Chandler Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
to upgrade the system to use wireless cell phone technology to link back to the monitoring system. Instead of replacing the old 20 year old control panel
Chandler Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
Chandler Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
-rigged a combination of other boxes (wireless router, etc) to the old control box. The end result was a wall full of boxes interconnected together that looked really bad. When I called the customer center to cancel the service since I was relocating out of state I got the go-around treatment from one person to another until I finally got a person that was very rude from the beginning and threatening that termination of service would be received with a huge termination bill. All of this for a system that should had never be installed to begin with. what was clear was that
Chandler Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
only cared about making money anyway they can. The monthly service charge after the upgrade was almost $60 per month. Now in my new house I have another provider that does not require a multi-year service contract, when the upgraded the old 20 year-old system they removed the old control box and replaced it with the latest technology hardware and it only costs me half of what

was charging. I will never use

ever again and will not recommend them to anybody.

The whole deal was confusing. The merchant did not want to deal with my questions because I bought this on Angies list. When i got the system I tried to set it up and it did not work so I called them and was on the phone waiting for a real person for 20 minutes. They did a test and the base station did not work so I had to wait 2 days for them to send me another, Then I had to return the inferior one. When I received the new one it did not work because it had not been programmed before they shipped it to me. Then I had to call them again,
To this day Im not sure that a test was done because what the instructions in the book and the countless emails and over the phone instructions are all DIFFERENT
They are also big on trying to upgrade you and referring a friend, I get at lease 2 emails a day from them and it is so CONFUSING
- Joann Q.

The system is easy to install and very affordable,
There have been break ins in our area, so we are glad we were able to purchase a system
without contracts and thousands on installation and monitoring.

was very thorough. He explained everything in a clear, easy to understand and detailed manner. Great job! Thank you!

Chandler Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
has amazing customer service. We did a deal for a package through Angie's List, and they worked with us to personalize it to our needs. I was able to set up the system within 30 minutes, and just made a phone call to begin using it. So easy!
- Ashley P.

We have used
Chandler Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
for the past 5 years and moved service twice to new homes. In the industry, alarm contracts are bundled together and sold like commodities. Since these type of contracts all get the same quality of service from a third party, I try to find the most budget friendly provider. This monitoring service is on par with other services. Customer service is great. The owner is very knowledgeable of current security trends and technology. I've been very happy with the service.
