For the Basic model, we have three monitoring options. Our Elite model requires our Elite monitoring plan.

Step 2: How Many Doors and Windows do you have?

Door and window sensors are the heart and soul of any alarm system.

Step 3: Add Motion Sensors.

Get an immediate alert when there's motion in your home or business and you're not there.

Reminder: Door and window sensors are more secure than motion sensors, as motion sensors aren't active when you're in the night or armed (stay) modes.

Most people have a motion sensor in the living room, near the door. You may also want to put motion sensors in other common areas, such as your garage, basement, family room, loft, office, or customer waiting area.
