Broadview Home Security??
The Alarm Companies that advertise will sell you a Alarm system for 0 $$ and all you get is one Control panel, two door contacts and a motion sensor. For extra they will sell you one smoke detector. Did you also know that the dialers in the systems are set to do Rotary Dial because they are so cheap they cannot get touchtone digits to go thru every time. So lets see here about timing, alarm goes off, it takes the dialer 20 seconds to dial the 800 number to the Central station that is all the way across the USA from where you live, assuming that AT&T's long distance is working. It then takes another 8-20 seconds to log onto the Alarm Receiver and transmit the code, then add on the time it takes to get into que at the Central Stations monitoring persons computer, add more time for them to figure out what is displayed, then go thru the call list and begin to start calling people, among which the Police are not first. Add this all up and you have a 6 minute Commercial TV break for advertising before any action is taken. My alarm company can respond in less than a minute cause the call went Touchtone, was received by two Central Stations that have 15 people on consoles and they will call back in less than a minute with two rings to my phone or they dispatch directly. False alarms are my issue that I pay to the city. Fortunately my system is very good and does not cause false alarms. False alarms are the worst call for a Policeman as they will go Code 3 to your location after they get the call maybe 8-20 minutes later if they are not tied up on something more major. I also just added 4 Day-Night cameras and a recording system into my house to augment the alarm system. Did you re-enforce your door frames from Kick-Ins?? I did.
Good Luck with your alarm system.
