For $150 per year for a 2,500 sq.ft. house with fire protection, alarm protection, swat (if you have an intruder), and annual inspection included. Because they are a local company they will take all the time you need to learn the system, they inspect your system automatically, and they answer any questions you might have. Each year they set up an appointment with you for an annual review. They check all the fire alarms, the system, change the batteries, and test with the fire department and the police. What wonderful service!
