I currently use Vivint. I'm not sure how it compares to other services in regards to cost and protection option but i have used them for about 4 years now with no issues and im confident my home is safe. Maybe you can research them as one of your home security options.
Thanks Melissa, I really like getting personal reviews on products. I'm looking for a system with cameras that I can monitor throughout the day and talk to my dogs. What's your favorite feature of Simply Safe?
