    Xfinity, we love it, the app lets you monitor cameras from your phone and turn alarm off to let someone in. I hate Verizon but love this service so much.

    yorp127:  we lock the doors, that’s really it. We live in a very small rural town and break ins aren’t really a concern. Plus we live in a very quiet neighborhood. If all else fails we have multiple shot guns, hand guns, rifles, and knives in our closet in case someone were to break in during the night. We don’t really worry about it though.

    We use ADT I live in a college town where there are alot of home invasions and burglaries so we have four cameras outside one at our front enterance, one at the garage, one outside of the master bedroom window, and one outside of the living room window. We basically have all of our enterances covered and for good measure we have a camera that is activated by movement in the livingroom. I also have locks on my closet. We use the ADT app to monitor our home when we are away. My Fiance has been a victim of a burglary so he is very particular about our security.

    yorp127:  We use Slomins. We live in a totally safe area but I feel a lot better when we go away or are at work, knowing that we have a security system. We just have doors armed and a motion sensor in the living room. No complaints here – though they make you sign an insane contract (5 years) but we have no plans to move anytime soon.

    We are about to order Simplisafe! We live in a really safe area but still want an alarm system and don’t want to spend a fortune on it since it’s more just for peace of mind. It’s totally month to month with no contract- LOVE that feature.

    Doberman security system.

    We have a security system but I never used it, so I disabled it. As a matter of fact we ended up getting robbed by one of the guys who installed it; how’s that for irony? He stole a bracelet and an 18kt tie tack that I’d had made for my husband. Apparently he’d done this before. It kind of turned me against alarm systems in general…

    ADT and 2 German shepards. Good thing too, when I left for work today the front door mat was moved, looked like someone was looking for a key…. Creepy s**t happening in our area lately
