These connections work similarly to your cell phone plan and are more secure than traditional Wi Fi or landline connections. But it’s important to note that
even if you’re doing the monitoring yourself, you’ll still be charged to keep your system up and running. Brinks Home Security is well recognized for offering professionally monitored security systems. These systems offer the flexibility of either professional or DIY installation. As a partner with Nest, they also allow
you to choose between using their own equipment or Nest Secure equipment and monitoring. If you choose Nest Secure, Brinks will provide the ongoing staff and support for that system. Choosing Brinks comes at a premium price, but they do offer financing options for equipment at low or no interest. The monitoring itself is low cost, and it comes with a 2 year warranty although some options also require a 3 year commitment. There are steep early termination fees, but if you go with Nest Secure, there is an alternative month to month plan. Protect America delivers the home security system equipment to your door and allows you to handle the installation and setup yourself. The company says that setup should take less than an hour.
