First off, ADT actually owns Brinks security, which is now all but history except for some commercial applications. ADT is not local, is simply too big for their own good. Service and getting out of contract (even when term is up) is terrible. 7
WIth AlarmForce, having their sign on your front lawn is an open invitation to bugulars. Thieves know how easy it is to disable an AlarmForce system, as all you have to do is unplug the ugly box right at the phone line at the wall (nothing to cut, just unplug it) and its useless, no VoX communication anymore, no "stop mr.intruder" it's complete garbage. Best to go with a smaller, yet still ULC certified, company that provides service and QUALITY alarm components (DSC components, for example, are the market leader by miles), if not why even bother? I've seen many companies that sell based on how cheap their monitoring is, yeah that's what i want CHEAP security!?!
Who cares about monitoring costs when you get most of it back from an insurer anyway? Especially with a good, reputable, local company.

    I'm going to have to agree with smart man that the Homeowner guy obviously has no idea what he's talking about and he must have the box on his kitchen counter or next to the front door LOL. and yes they have line cut protection to prevent cutting phone line and the box also has a back up battery inside so simply unplugging the unit will do no good to a burglar. I've had alarmforce for 5 yrs now and love it. I've never had a problem, tech was awesome, service dept great . A+ rating all around for them and i've had a few false alarms and they came over the 2 way voice instantly and the one time i wasn't home they notified the Police and within 3 mins I had the Helicopter in the sky circling my house with their huge light pointing down at my house and i rushed home to find 2 police crusiers also waiting in my driveway. I'm glad it was just my dog that set off the motion, but I was extremely impressed with their SUPER quick response to me and the police dept as well. I think Homeowner should think about what he is writing before he opens his mouth. You probably didn't pay your bill or something and now you owe them money and that's why you have a sour taste in your salty mouth.

    Yeah I'm so sure the copper chopper was deployed just for your home alarm. Who are you kidding?
