My home owners insurance saved me 10% with this alarm system. I had it for over three and a half years and only had one problem. I was once called at work to go to my house because the alarm had sounded and the police were on their way. I had to drive over 15 kilometers in heavy traffic, and drove like a madman. When I arrived there were two police officers with guns drawn wanting me to open the door to my house. Needlesss to say we deduced that a burst of wind may have tossed the curtains, which set the movement sensors off. It made sense seeing there was no other explaination. A technician came to check the system and slapped me with a $80 bill, and did nothing! That's when I decided to drop the monitoring. My insurance went up, but it's still less than I paid for monitoring. If it makes one have peace of mind, then there is no price for security. I would highly reccomend it!
