With regards to, so-called “FREE” home security systems area, I am reminded of the parable of the wise king who desired to give his subjects the wisdom of the ages. He called all of the scholars within his kingdom together and told them he wanted to gather the wisdom of the ages. They worked for a year compiling a great work, volumes and volumes of the best wisdom the kingdom possessed. They presented it to the king and he was impressed, but he said it was too vast, that his subjects would not be able to read it all and asked them to condense the wisdom. They worked and argued and lastly got the “wisdom for the ages” down to only one book. The king, again was impressed, but said it was still too long. They worked even harder and got the wisdom for the ages right down to a chapter, and then to a page, a paragraph, and finally to merely one sentence. The king considered that one sentence and finally proclaimed, “You’ve done it! This is actually the wisdom of the ages.” That sentence; “There ain’t no such thing as a FREE lunch!”
In terms of home security systems mansfield, in spite of what companies claim, “There ain’t no such thing as being a FREE lunch!” Sure they tell you that your home security system is free of charge,(and worth $850) but lets look at the facts. First, what type of quality can you really expect to get for under the cost of an iPod? And, for that matter, what amount of security are you able to get to your family for $100? We’re referring to protecting your home, and family and I’ve had customers within the Scranton area obtain a second quote on the $99 home security system. Rather than studying the quality of the panels and the design of the security system, they were comparing prices on FREE-$99 systems. You have to wonder that which was his family was worth to him.
Before I go any further permit me to add a disclaimer, and i also tell this to all of my customers; “Your home burglar alarm system you really can afford is always a lot better than the main one you can’t afford.” That is certainly to say, any security alarm system is preferable to none at all, since a burglar doesn’t really know what you might have. If you’re over a fixed income or money is extra tight go for the $100 system, just be certain you have the system and you’re not getting an basic level panel. Since that is out of the way lets take a good look at merely what you’re getting for “FREE” or $99.
Anytime someone offers a “FREE” home security system you are able to take it towards the bank it isn’t free, and you don’t own it. First of all, they often hide a $99 installation fee to enable them to advertise the house burglar alarm system as “FREE”. The largest secret about so-called “FREE” security systems is the fact that in 9 out of 10 offers you don’t own the protection system. It is actually what is called, a leased system. They don’t let you know it’s a lease, but question them in the event you own the panel. Ask, “Should I cancel my monitoring will your company remove or disable my home security panel?” The strategy behind a leased burglar alarm system is if you attempt to cancel your monitoring they will likely threaten to accept the system out of your home (leaving a big hole with wires chilling out). You could have spent $1000.00 on additional devices to safeguard your home, but when they remove your cpanel those security items are worthless. Which means that your saddled with a security alarm company you don’t want and can’t afford.
Which brings me towards the monitoring. The place where these businesses make their funds is on the back-end in the sale, the monitoring fees which you pay each month. You might have saved just a little on the so-called “FREE” security alarm system that you still paid $100 to possess installed, so you don’t own, but you’ll pay an added $75-$100 more each year for the FREE security alarm system. Through the lifetime of the panel you would have paid $1,500-$2,000 for any very low-end, basic level security panel. This technique of selling low-end (a good way of saying “cheap junk”) home security systems has turned out to be quite effective as shown by a number of the sxwkex names in home based security. Most of the big names in home security, such as the biggest names, got there by selling cheap or “FREE” home security systems and charging higher then average monitoring fees. Of course, typically, you are failing to get any better monitoring for your investment. (I’ll must discuss the variations in the monitoring variations in monitoring companies in a another article.)
Finally, exactlty what can you anticipate paying for a quality home security system. Within the Scranton, PA area, you can get a good wireless panel as well as a perimeter security alarm system for $one thousand-$1,500. As mentioned before, you can get the fundamentals for $99 and when you get a great cpanel, you can add devices to it down the road. I needed a Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barron’s (now a Yankees farm team) pitcher purchase 7 window devices every year for 3 years until every window in his home was protected. A number of my customers take their taxes to upgrade their system. If you have an excellent panel then you can certainly always add to it down the road. If you’re beginning with junk, then junk is perhaps all you’ll have. Because the quote goes, “It’s like putting lipstick over a pig, its still simply a pig.”
