I have been asked so many times if we do alarms, its sad how much we have turned away. For the record I am licensed and can legally install all low voltage items.
I am partnering up with an independent tech who does alarms and A/V. He is going to get us started and do all the installs etc. Probably be a financial loss in the beginning but I look at it as an investment. He is familiar with Honeywell and 2GIG
If you had to start all over, which panels would you use for residential and small commercial? We are considering 2GIG and Honeywell as they seem common and our sub knows them. I pass ADI daily (honeywell) and Tri-Ed (2GIG) is about 45 minutes away, so inventory should not be an issue. I also saw in another post Nellys is carrying 2GIG. I have some expeience with them, and they seemed like a pretty decent company to work with.
As far as monitoring companies, I am looking to partner with one that can do intrusion AND video monitoring or at least verification. Any suggestions? I know I need to review the list of monitoring companies IPVM published
