How easy was installing your system?
My house had Honeywell Tuxedo Touch keypad with Vista 15p control panel pre-installed from previous owner. Alarm Grid Team helped me to understand the installation and add the iGSMV4G dual-path communicator to complete the installation. The installation was done with help from tech over the phone. The technician was very knowledgeable and walked me through each step with patience.
How did you end up picking Alarm Grid?
Being an Engineer, I wanted to understand the installation and functioning of the alarm system. Alarm grid provided me an opportunity to add sensors on my own and perform basic programming for my home automation system. This is tremendous advantage in contrast with other companies, who have astronomically high costs for initial installation of the sensors.
Do you feel safer as a result of Alarm Grid monitoring your house?
Yes, combining self-monitoring with central station monitoring, I have a peace of mind for my home protection. I also have 4-5 additional sensors, which provide comprehensive protection to my house. Combination of wireless motion sensor and wireless glass break sensors, provides great advantage over having only one sensor.
How much money did you save by installing this system on your own?
Honestly, there is no comparison on that. I avoided hassle of having to deal with pushy salesmen from other companies who promise low price on monthly payment but charge high amount on installation charges. The cost-savings will be significant compared to any other home security company you pick.
Do you enjoy the home automation aspects of your system?
I do have Home Automation package with my total connect package. This has significantly improved my lifestyle in addition to saving money. The automated light control through app as well as by automatic schedule significantly enhances the way you live.
What do you like most about your Alarm Grid monitoring?
My favorite part of Alarm grid is that the company empowers customers to offer customized system at very reasonable cost. The staff is very young and energetic, which makes installation and support quite easy process. Offering of total connect service is also the part I love about Alarm grid offerings.
How has taking advantage of the homeowners' insurance discount benefited you?
Yes I have taken advantage of homeowners’ insurance discount available to central station monitored systems. This basically pays of the additional cost of Central station monitoring. In addition, I feel safer as there is somebody else looking after my safety.
