Pricing on a Home Security System

Ann and I have started to look at how much it would cost to get one of those ADT home security systems. Obviously you can do all sorts of things when it comes to designing and building a home security system, but we are wondering how much it would cost to get started on one and how much it is going to cost you to keep it on a monthly basis. The system is going to cost you some money up front. You have to pay for the stuff that goes in it and you have to decide what you are going to do. A lot of the systems that you can get are more like home automation systems than just pure alarm systems. For example you can get a system that allows you to see who is at your front door via a cell phone app. Then you could actually unlock the door with the app with you have the lock that lets you do that.

The question is how much is all of this going to cost you and what is it really worth to you. We are interested in having a basic monitoring system. It should tell us if some guy is trying to break in to the place or if the house has smoke in it obviously. I guess you have to worry about carbon dioxide and radon too, although that seems to depend a lot on what part of the country you live in. There are certain places where you have to worry about the presence of stuff like that and this is not one of them so far as I know. You do have to worry about all of the usual types of crooks and you have to worry about fire and especially smoke.
