How much is the equipment?
Well that is a good question. If you lease the basic ADT, Protection One, Matson, Oasis, Security First etc… It will probably cost you $99.00 - $299.00 and you will have to sign a multi-year contract. That will cover the basics, you will never own it and if anyone offers FREE, remember free isn’t free.
Our difference is you OWN-IT from day one!
ALARM MEN STANDARD PACKAGE:
Includes: one (1) alarm control, one (1) interior siren, one (1) keypad, two (3) door/window sensors, one (1) motion detector, battery backup, transformer, telephone connection, and all installation for $299.00
If you want to protect additional areas they will cost you approximately $50.00 per location (doors/windows), $65.00 per location (motion detectors), listed price is for hardwired devices.
How much is it to take over an existing burglar or fire alarm system. If we can program the system there is a $49.95 activation fee (Gas is getting expensive).
If we cannot reprogram, it will cost you whatever the wholesale cost is of the panel. Most burglary panels cost between $120.00 - $300.00 and you will own it.
Right now most all alarm company contracts are leases and the control panels belong to the installing alarm company. With us you will always have the ability to manage who monitors your alarm system, because you OWN-IT!

I checked on Pinnacle Security yesterday and the deal over the phone was pretty good; Alarm panel with cellular $299.99 $41.99 a month, and ONLY A 42 MONTH CONTRACT! Hmmm, $1,763.58
