Ring Alarm also has a siren and you can self monitor and still control your system remotely and all that jazz, plus professional monitoring is super affordable. I’d check out this review of Ring vs. Simplisafe
and let me know if you have any other questions!If you don’t buy the equipment outright, Vivint requires either a four or five year contract — a long time to commit, especially given that you only have three days from the date of install to cancel. Afterwards, you’ll have to pay out the remainder of your contract. If you may be moving in the near future, it’ll cost you $99 to take the system with you. You could alternatively renew your contract, but then
you’d be locked in for even longer.
