Home security system recommendations in MD?

Not the best place to ask, but I figured I would try

Anyone have any recommendations for home security? I am getting tired of paying for my existing home security when the provider has yet to come and give me a tutorial the 2 years I have lived here (even after several phone calls). I pay $26.50/month and would like to stay around that rate.

I have ADT. Happy so far. They explained everything to us in person when we got the system installed. If you are a member of USAA you can get a reduced rate.

System works great! Had the fire dept show up during my kid's Halloween party, cause the fog machine set off the smoke detector. A little embarassing but the kids thought it was great.

I pay a discounted rate for USAA members and I think it's like $19+ per month maybe??? but not 100% postive though. If I recall correctly the install was free but I had to sign up for something like a 3 yr contract, again this was a program special for USAA members, not sure what the standard retail deal is.

Brink home security is the best alternate, and you should try this.

I installed a DSC System, not one issue in 16 years. Monitored by Protection One. They always call 1st before the police to prevent false alarm costs assessed by the county. Which most jurisdictions do now.

So do you think protection one can use the existing system in my home? Their prices seem reasonable.

Yes, Protection One is my monitoring company. I pay $24/ month which includes maintenance of my system. If what you have has some age to it you may want to conceder that too with the monitoring. Protection One will monitor whatever alarm system you have. I think ADT and Brinks, now Broadview may require their system installed. Protection One is the second largest alarm co. in the USA. Please feel free to PM me with your questions.

Security systems if installed in your home could prove to be of additional benefit as it will help you feel secure from burglars and thieves. It is loaded with the latest hi-tech features to suit the home security needs of a person and you could even avail them at great deals online.

Can I expand on the question a bit?

My wife and I are trying to decide between getting an ADT home security system, a system of surveillance cameras, or both. Here are my thoughts. I think that we will be just fine with an alarm system. There will be sensors on most windows and doorways that will warn you of an intruder. My wife thinks that we should get a bunch of cameras and that will deter any kind of burglar. I think cameras will only capture the crime and do no good. The police will only see the video after the fact. Or, we could get both and really have a heightened sense of security. Any thoughts/feedback? Sadly, I cannot talk her into the firearms pictured above!

i was looking at the 500 but i think im leaning towards the 590. I had some fun with an ar-15 yesterday, thats a great gun, but when the gun show comes here in a month im going to get one of the mossbergs with some goodies on it.
