How much does it cost to have a basic home security system installed?


NEVER SUBMIT........ to evil

a decent, reliable, system would start around $500 for a small apartment...... $1,000 to 1,500 for a moderate house... Plus monthly monitoring service.... there are a lot of cheaper ones.... many do-it-yourself.... no monitoring service... that can be hooked into your internet..... but to make the cheap systems really effective protection... which most find out they will have to upgrade to get.... you will end up paying more than you would have if you had put in a decent system in the first place....... DO A LOT OF HOMEWORK before you buy anything...... not on YA

That totally depends on how good or bad the installer is. Some will install a $100 system and charge $1500, others may install a $500 system for less than $1000... If you have a friend who is good with wiring and electronics, you may be able get a good system installed for little above the parts cost.


That depends on what system you choose.


The installation is generally free. The monthly bills are about $50.
