Its just wires or wireless for the install, so find out what panel and components they are using. If its the same one, go with price.

…in alarm systems? I’m about to get one for the house I live in and ADT is charging like $524 just to install. In addition to their monthly fee.

I know that Slomins has free installation and a similiar monthly fee. Although they want you to sign up for a 5 year agreement as opposed to a 3 year agreement with ADT. I also know of a guy who sells Guardian Home Alarm systems. Is there really a difference when they all provide central monitoring?

I just signed up for one for my house…I met with 3…and honestly, I went with price.

I have slomins, but I had extra stuff installed so I did have to pay some installation fees, but in the end I’m happy. And yes the 5 yr. agreement sucks, but I’ll live.
