First, I should say as with anything when something is “Free” read the fine print. Often “free” systems mean compromising the quality of the equipment, technician, or a very high recurring monthly rate. Even at $199.00 for our Basic Package we are actually losing money up front. The equipment alone costs more than that, let alone labor(by employees, not subs), programming, and our Quality Assurance Program. The first concern is if you are going to invest in a security system get one that actually keeps you secure, and be careful you aren’t saving on the upfront costs just to pay through the nose on the “back end” costs.
