Ask the Expert 11.30.15 - How much does a security system cost?

Unfortunately, there’s no easy answer to how much a security system costs. If you buy from a local company, you’ll probably be looking at $1500-$2000 as the total cost of a basic home security system. If you add additional features, your total cost may be higher. From local to national companies, there can be a big difference in price based on the amount of money down, monthly monitoring charges, length of contract, and installation and other charges. Most local companies will charge you a down payment ranging from around $100 to $1000. Based on how much you put down, the amount of your monthly monitoring can change. The average cost for basic monitoring is around $20-$25 a month. Generally, the more money you put towards the system during the time of purchase, the less you’ll pay for monitoring during the length of your contract. Some national brands offer specials such as no down payment or a reward such as a gift card with the purchase of a system. You should be wary of these specials, as nothing is free - they’ll have to recoup their funds somehow, generally with higher monthly monitoring fees (around $40-$50) and other charges.
