Here are some rules to abide by when looking for a home monitoring company:
1. No contract. If a company requires a contract, scratch them off your list and move on. NEVER sign a contract with a monitoring company. This means you'll have to actually pay for your equipment, but going the other route (with a contract) will cost you much more in the end. Companies who offer free equipment are simply subsidizing the cost of that equipment by locking you into a contract and overcharging you for monitoring service. There is a lot of scum in the home monitoring industry - stay away from them. Keep it simple and save your money: no contract.
2. Cost of mid- to high-teens, no more than $20 per month. There is no need to pay more than that for monitoring.
3. Monitoring station is UL-approved. This insures your monitoring will be done by a high-quality monitoring station.
4. Make sure whatever monitoring service you go with also offers smoke and fire monitoring. Most of us get a monitoring service to respond to a break-in, but we have a much higher chance of being hurt by smoke or fire than by a burglar. Make sure your service has smoke and fire monitoring.
After many years of research, this is the best monitoring company I found and the one I ended up going with: SimpliSafe . They meet every single one of those requirements above (they're rolling out their smoke/fire detectors in about one month). Their monitoring costs $14.99 per month, no contract. Their equipment is self-install and the costs are very cheap compared to other monitoring companies' equipment costs. It's extremely easy to install yourself - literally just peel and stick on the wall.
