If you are my fb friend you might have read this but last night (Friday night) 4 armed, masked me broke into a house in my neighborhood. They entered through the basement (apparently managing to get the lock open without doing any damage to the door) and then barged into the main floor with guns drawn. There were 3 residents home watching TV. They made them lie on the floor and then forced them into closets. They stole jewlery and other valuables staying in the house for about 45 minutes. This is an almost identical home invasion to one that happened exactly 2 weeks earlier about 5 miles from here. Nobody was hurt in either incident but it's still fvcking scary!
We have a very old securty sytem in our house but honestly have no freaking clue how to operate it. I'd like an updated system and I want it monitored. The catch, we don't have a home phone and don't want one. Are there any companies out there that work without a home phone? How much does monitoring generally cost? Do most companies install a system for free if you sign a monitoring contract? I know I've seen commercials for that but wasn't sure if that was common.
I really apprecaite any help you girls can give me!!
