Hello,

I am about to install all new windows in my house, 24 of them, and will need to address the switches in the windows. I have magnetic switches in there now. Will a plunger switch work in the window? I will drill into the sill to install the switch but I don't want to drill into the window to install a magnet. That's why I'm thinking a plunger switch.

there is no system avail that outperforms sonitrol but monitoring costs're the real $$$ for the industry,,, sonitrol has active audio - monitors actually HEAR what's going on in the protected area & compare to ' stored audio ' thereby defining what tripped the alarm,,, active audio is then sent to police,,, no false alarm fees, either,,, as most everyone knows, police don't respond to most home alarm systems ( unless its their neighbor or family member ) cause they're tired of false alarms.

yes, there're costs for installing & all systems are post-incident as're the police,,, if you've REALLY got something to protect, it is absolutely the best available,,, its so good adt owns a couple franchises,,, no financial interest other'n a VERY satisfied user.

EDIT NUMERO UNO: 1 digital control panel, several ' glass breaks ' & tuned motion detectors, no window/door switches, dble battery backup, cellular dispatch, 1 large dog, 1 ithaca 12ga, 1 snub .38spec, 1 .357ruger, lots of insurance, & window decals.

It's quite usefull at night, It does give you peace of mind that you know your the only one inside your home. Make sure your telephone line outside isn't too visible to anyone or a criminal can cut your phone line with a quick snip and you might not even realize it until it's too late

Four times since 1982 I have gone through the house in the middle of the night with a .38 and a flashlight looking for the source of a noise.
I hoped I'd find somebody, the wife hoped I didn't. She got her wish.

33/mo = 396/yr.

Future Value Annuity Calculator

for 10 yrs @7%/yr means ADT makes $5854 on your money.

Do you have homeowner's insurance? How much is your personal property worth? How much to build a secure room in your house?

Burglars are not robbers; robbers confront each time, burglars hope to never confront.

If you can delay the guy one minute he'll go to the next house.

Your local police will supply the crime report for your area; you've already paid for it, you might as well get it.

Fear, Uncertainty & Doubt sells a lot of stuff to a lot of people.

You don't need to pay for monthly monitoring service; you can install a call box that can automatically call 911 or your local police department and play a recorded message. Prior to using this method you simply contact the police and they'll give you a ARR (auto recorded response) number to include in your message. I've used this method and when my house was broken into in 2007 my audible alarm didn't go off due to an error on my side BUT did contact the police, who arrived to catch the burglary red handed.

Also, monitoring services have a call DELAY since they will contact YOU first prior to the police. This gives a burglary easily 10 to 15 minutes before police will respond. Don't believe me, test your alarm one day and see how long it takes till the police arrive, you'll throw up.
