”One element that has helped home security companies continue to thrive in the face of the DIY movement, Ward said, is monthly monitoring charges. “Recurring monthly revenue is where a good number of security companies get the majority of their revenue,” he said. But Defenders doesn’t have that luxury. In its arrangement with ADT, the latter gets all the monitoring revenue. A different modelDefenders is focused on its own goals, Boyce said, not fretting about the competition or changing landscape. The installation market is robust, Bateman said, adding that “companies with really good reputations and great stories to tell like Defenders can really benefit from all the mass advertising done by some of the new entrants—DIY and traditional. … It raises the awareness of the entire security and home automation industry. ”Boyce said he has four fundamental reasons for believing Defenders will continue to grow no matter the competitive landscape.

While we see the Honeywell Lyric LCP500 L Security Controller as a hit with great new features, there is a glaring negative we see as well. If you signup for AlarmNet for Interactive Services and possibly Total Connect 2, you are sort of “locked” to your selected dealer for monitoring services. You can still change dealers at any time of course but it will require a factory reset defaulting the panel which blows away all existing panel settings and zone configuration. Honeywell has decided, and just for Lyric it seems, to make dealer “takeovers” of monitoring accounts very difficult since they now require the new dealer or DIY homeowner to reenter/reprogram all wireless sensors and more into the controller from scratch. If you start with a good monitoring vendor this will never be a problem, but we have an issue making it so burdensome for users to switch if their dealer service levels fall or their pricing is no longer competitive. If you don’t buy the equipment outright, Vivint requires either a four or five year contract — a long time to commit, especially given that you only have three days from the date of install to cancel. Afterwards, you’ll have to pay out the remainder of your contract. If you may be moving in the near future, it’ll cost you $99 to take the system with you. You could alternatively renew your contract, but then you’d be locked in for even longer.
