If you’re thinking about choosing a home security system without monitoring versus one with monitoring, it’s probably to save yourself the cost of a monthly subscription fee. It’s important to assess your priorities for home security and the time you have. For self-monitored systems, it is your responsibility to contact emergency personnel in the event of a crisis. On the other side, monitored systems have experts keeping an eye on your home for you, calling necessary parties to come help in the event of an emergency.
When you self-monitor your home, it’s important to have a plan if your alarm sounds, as well as how to turn off the alarm. You are fully responsible for contacting 911 if you need emergency services. It will potentially be cheaper to self-monitor, but it will also require more time and effort to maintain the safety of your home.
If your system is monitored, the alarm company steps into action when your alarm is tripped. They will contact you to check in, and either turn off the alarm if it is a false alarm, or dispatch necessary emergency teams.
