What about maintenance costs? ADT's monitoring includes a warranty. Any service within 90 days of install is no cost to you with residential monitoring. After 90 days, you pay only a $25 trip fee and parts and labor is covered. Beware of monitoring rates that save you a couple bucks monthly but leave you with service and maintenance costs. At $100 an hour and pieces of equipment costing between $89-$450 the cost of service and maintenance adds up quickly.

You can't put a cost on protecting your family but the price you pay for being broken into or having a fire is substantial. To learn more or set up a No-Cost In-Home Security Evaluation call us at 1-800-310-9490.
