In terms of, so-called “FREE” security alarm 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 in his kingdom together and said he desired to gather the wisdom of the ages. They worked for a year compiling a fantastic 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 discussed and lastly got the “wisdom for the ages” down to just one single book. The king, again was amazed, but said it was still too long. They worked even harder and got the wisdom for the ages down to a chapter, and after that to a page, a paragraph, and finally to simply one sentence. The king looked at that one sentence and finally proclaimed, “You’ve tried it! This is truly the wisdom of the ages.” That sentence; “There ain’t no such thing as a FREE lunch!”
In terms of home security systems mansfield, despite what companies claim, “There ain’t no such thing as a FREE lunch!” Sure they let you know that your home burglar alarm system is free,(and worth $850) but lets discuss the facts. First, what kind of quality can you really expect to get for under the buying price 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 property, and family and I’ve had customers inside the Scranton area get a second quote on a $99 home security system. Rather than exploring the expertise of the panels and the appearance of the protection system, these were comparing prices on FREE-$99 systems. You have to wonder what was his family was worth to him.
Before I go any more let me put in a disclaimer, and i also tell this to all of my customers; “The home alarm system you can afford is always much better than the main one you can’t afford.” That is certainly to state, any security alarm system is preferable to none whatsoever, just because a burglar doesn’t really know what you have. If you’re on the fixed income or money is extra tight go for that $100 system, just be certain you own the device and you’re not receiving an low-end panel. Now that that is certainly out of the way lets take a close look at just what you’re getting for “FREE” or $99.
Anytime someone is offering you a “FREE” home security system you can bring it to the bank it isn’t free, and also you don’t own it. First of all, they usually 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 in 9 out of 10 offers you don’t own the protection system. It is actually precisely what is called, a leased system. They don’t let you know it’s a lease, but inquire further in the event you own the panel. Ask, “If I cancel my monitoring will your organization remove or disable my security alarm panel?” The strategy behind a leased burglar alarm system is if you try to cancel your monitoring they will threaten to accept the system from 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 control panel those security products are worthless. So your tied to a security company you don’t want and can’t afford.
That can bring me to the monitoring. Where these companies make their money is on the back-end from the sale, the monitoring fees that you simply pay each month. You could have saved just a little on the so-called “FREE” security alarm system that you simply still paid $100 to get installed, and that you don’t own, but you’ll pay an added $75-$100 more annually for the FREE security alarm system. During the lifetime of the panel you will have paid $1,500-$2,000 to get a very low-end, basic level security panel. This method of selling low-end (a good means of saying “cheap junk”) home security systems has became extremely effective as shown by a few of the sxwkex names home based security. Most of the big names in home security, such as the biggest names, got there by selling cheap or “FREE” security alarm systems and charging higher then average monitoring fees. Needless to say, generally, you happen to be not receiving any better monitoring for your money. (I’ll need to discuss the variations in the monitoring variations in monitoring companies in a another article.)
Finally, exactlty what can you expect to pay for a quality home security system. Inside the Scranton, PA area, you can aquire a good wireless panel along with a perimeter home security system for $1,000-$1,500. As mentioned before, you will get the basics for $99 and when you get a great user interface, you can always add devices with it in the future. I needed a Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barron’s (now a Yankees farm team) pitcher purchase 7 window devices every year for three years until every window in his home was protected. Some of my customers get their taxes to upgrade their system. In case you have a great panel then you can certainly always add to it in the future. If you’re starting with junk, then junk is perhaps all you’ll ever have. Because the quote goes, “It’s like putting lipstick on a pig, its still just a pig.”
