Home alarm monitoring

Currently looking for another home alarm monitoring company. Not happy with current provider/billing practices and won't respond to billing inquiries.

Current provider is in London, ON.

Any suggestions other than the big players?

What about Alarm Force or Think Protection?

Interesting. I see Think Protection was founded by Joel Matlin who founded Alarm Force. My concern is we would likely have to install an entire new alarm system if we migrated to one of these companies and that would be costly.

Does anyone know anything about "The Alarm Monitoring Centre"? They advertise great rates, but I wonder about quality of service.

Are you talking about The Monitoring Centre?

https://www.themonitoringcenter.com/

I have a friend who has used them for years. Seems OK. I will switch to them if ADT ever increase my rates. Currently I'm getting good enough rates from ADT not to bother with the hassle of switching.

Here's a previous older thread:

Thanks everyone.

It appears, The Monitoring Centre (TMC) doesn't service the area we are in. So I think I will try another independent alarm company in London (Alarmtech) to see what their rates are.
