You have 3 main choices we could imagine. First, you can self-install the equipment with our assistance to keep costs low. The Napco system is fully battery operated and sticks up on the wall, so it's simple for people who like to self-install. Second, you could hire our technicians to install it, if desired. The third option is to hire a local alarm installation company, and we can assist them remotely if needed.
Absolutely! You can even turn monitoring on and off depending on needs or budgets that month. Our systems are designed flexible, so you can change at anytime. If monitoring, we just require a 30 day notice to cancel. All systems have a base cell radio fee each month, even if only self-monitoring. The system can't reach your app, if it can't reach the internet. Each system is dual path communication, so you can plug in ethernet but it doesn't require it due to the cell radio as the primary communication method. The radio fee is roughly $12mo on any system.
