Hello,

Merry X'mas to y'all.

I am shopping for my first home alarm system for my new construction and my first home. The builder's construction comes with the home security equipment provided by a company called "Fortress Security LLC" based on Arlington, TX. Eventhough, I have the equipment installed, I have not yet purchased monitoring services from Fortress Security because of some online comments (rip off reports while google on this company) on this company being same as Monitronics International home security company. Now, Monitronics does not seem to have a good history while checking on BBB (www.bbb.org) review. So my questions are:

1) Does anyone have experience with Fortress Security for home alarm system and appreciate any suggestions on them. Also, appreciate if you could share the pricing of Fortress Security compared to ADT or Brinks?

2) Also comments on whether this company is same as Monitronics is greatly appreciated and will help in my decisions for choosing a monitoring company.

Thanks

We have had both, ADT and Brinks, and they have been very good. Never had any problems and they were reasonably priced. I don't know anything about Fortress Security though...Sorry.

No security system quite beats a large dog that likes to bark at strange noises.
