Our Expert Opinion

“Monitronics’ basic package is very similar to our basic Essential package. The $99 up-front fee for professional installation is the same and their monthly monitoring service is $2 less per month.

To save $2 per month on your monitoring service, here’s what you don’t get from Monitronics:

  • 3 fewer door and window sensors – crucial for adequate coverage of most single family homes
  • 1 fewer remote – fine if you live alone, but if you have a partner or spouse, you’ll have to decide who gets the remote
  • No 180 day money-back guarantee
  • No $500 theft protection

Monitronics also only gives you a 90 day equipment warranty, whereas we provide you with a lifetime equipment warranty (certain restrictions apply).

These two basic packages are very comparable in price, but for $2 extra per month, I’d recommend ours.
