The High Cost of a Monitored Home Security System
« on: December 12, 2015, 03:11:07 AM »

 "Due to the cost, I have torn out my home security system, stopped paying the monthly fees and even resigned from the Neighborhood Watch Program.

I have installed a Syrian flag on my front porch, an Iranian flag next to my flower bed and the black flag of ISIS waves from my roof-top.

The state police, city police, sheriff, FBI, CIA and Homeland Security are all watching my house 24/7.

I've never felt safer. "

If you think it 's bad - it's probably worse.

I had Brink's which became Broadview which is now ADT for the past 10 years.
It is hardwired to my land line. With the death knell ringing for landline phones I need to seek out alternatives. When Kasick signed the biennial budget he line - item vetoed 44 things. Requiring the telecoms to keep and maintain landlines in Ohio wasn't one of them. Now it is up to the FCC.  This month, a team to oversee the transition has formed.

I would need to pay ADT to upgrade my system from a landline and dsl to uverse and a backup smart phone.
I would need to pay AT&T for UVerse and to rent their equiptment forever.
I would need a back up battery supply good for 4 hours in the event of a power failure.
I would need a smart phone,  a monthly bill and insurance for the phone.
I would need Sputnick to pick up a signal to triangulate my home address in the event of a 911 emergency during a power outages lasting more than 4 hours.
I would need a new HDMI capable Tv and Roku player.

BOHICA.    :butt:

I may just go with the ISIS flag,  a couple of Dixie cups and some string... :shrug2:

Somewhat scary that someone gets rid of home security system and says they never felt safer...!  :perfect10:

Either cases, I feel that with some expenses going through the roof we do need to make cuts.  :holysheep:
