    do you think a home security system is worth the money?

    We have been offered a free home system by a popular company. They say they offer 2 free systems in an area that they are trying to sell to. We decided to take it and we have 3 days to back out and get our money back.
    We paid extra to have some upgrades.

    We got a $10 break from the monthly charge. It is going to cost us $40 a month to have the service hooked up to EMS/police. I know some people have home security without monitoring. What do you think?

    The neat thing is if we stay with it for the 3 years once we move we can kepe using the system and they will install a new system in the home we buy for a minimum charge. That is provided we never back out on the system in 3 years or let time lapse after that

    I have ADT and love it. I had it insatlled when I was 24 after an old boyfriend wouldn't leave me alone. I feel so much safer and wouldn't be without it.
    Also, most Homeowners ins. will give you a discount if you have it. My discount is 25% wich pays for it and then some!

    My main reasons for having it was safety of the children. I don't want anyone getting out w/o me knowing like little Sam. I can see my dd doing something like that.

    I think they are a good thing. We don't have one, but we've thought about it several times. Our neighbors have ADT and had a few extra window signs so we put them in our windows. We just want burglers to think we have a security system.

    If you shop around you can get a good deal. I think I paid less than two hundred dollars (7 years ago) and pay like $24 a month. As I said you should be able to get a deduction in your Homeowners Insurance too.
