Home Security for your office?

Posted on August 26, 2011

I’ve learned one thing from Clark Howard: that signing with a larger Home/Office Security (Alarm) company is not a great decision. Not only are the costs 33% higher on average, but they require contracts with automatic rollover provisions. Clark’s advice? Sign with a smaller company that does not require a contract and they’ll typically have lower fees. I recently decided to change to EMC for my home security as their cost is $16.99/month with no contract, vs. Ackerman for $25.99 and a contract. Unfortunately, I have to wait until May until I can give Ackerman 60-days notice that I am canceling.

Take it from me: Do not sign a contract with a security company.
