New house with wired alarm system; Is there anyway to connect the alarm to call my cell phone if the alarm goes off? Or is there an inexpensive monitoring company out there that is recommended? I live in a master planned community that is gated and already has constant security driving around.
To pay $40/month to a monitoring company who takes an hour to respond to an alarm seems pointless.
1. Read every word of your alarm monitoring contract. Some of these lock you in to paying for several years and you need to send them a certified letter to cancel. They may own the alarm equipment. And they may have the key and the programming code.
