secure alarm

If you’re not already aware by now, your jurisdiction may require you to obtain a permit in order to operate a professionally monitored alarm system. Before we could even find the right spot to place the base station, Ring notified us that our area Charlotte Mecklenburg required a permit for use. Ring gives you a seven day grace period to decide what type of monitoring you want and to receive a permit number. In some cases, police won’t respond to a call from a monitoring center without a permit number. Fines for false alarms could also be pretty hefty they reach up to $500 in Charlotte, for example. The plastic itself feels cheaper than its Nest competitor, but Ring claims the base station is “smash proof” it’ll still call authorities in a beaten state.

But let’s go over what it can do today, first. The very affordable $199 starter kit includes a wireless base station, a keypad for arming and disarming the system, one door/window sensor, one passive infrared motion sensor, and a Z Wave range extender. You can monitor the system yourself, but at the price Ring is charging for professional monitoring—just $10 per month $100 per year if paid annually with no long term contract—it would be foolish not to sign up for it. That goes double for people who already have other Ring devices, because it includes video storage in the cloud for an unlimited number of Ring cameras. Ring’s sensors operate on battery power, the keypad and base station come with AC adapters, and the Z Wave range extender plugs directly into an AC outlet. All three of those components have battery backup, so the system will continue to operate in the event of a power outage.

They’ve also been known to add in perks like free installations for low tier packages, and freebies like a Nest Thermostat with the right video setups. However, reading the fine print is important: ADT monitoring has some of the most restrictive contracts in the business. Most DIY home security providers offer monthly professional monitoring for agents to watch after your home at all times. When a home security system is professionally monitored, a specialist from the monitoring company is ready to respond when sensors are triggered. If any activity triggers the alarm, a professional will attempt to contact you and alert emergency responders to your home. The cost of professional monitoring may range from $10/mo. up to $50/mo. Depending on the home security plan and provider, you can opt for monitoring through cellular, broadband, or landline connection.
