A good home security Austin TX company will have 24 hour monitoring 365 days a year. This may seem like an obvious statement but it is amazing to see how many security companies do not provide this type of service.
A company that provides good quality monitoring will be able to give you a fast response if there is ever an alarm triggered. Do not leave the safety of your home and valuables to the protection of a company that has a port monitoring service. True, they may offer a slightly lower monthly rate to monitor your home but is your safety worth it?
