Monitronics has invested millions of dollars in to their monitoring technology in order to provide reliable, uninterrupted security monitoring services. Monitronics is certified by the following experts:
- Underwriters Laboratories
- Electronic Security Association
- Central Station Alarm Association
- Security Industry Association
- National Fire Protection Agency
Monitronics has a solid average response time of 20-seconds coupled with a redundant central station located in Dallas, Texas.
While there are a minimal 500 complaints from customers online most deal with equipment not functioning correctly, incorrect billing for service calls, and not responding when alarms sounded. In addition, finding important information can be somewhat of a grueling task. Potential customers must call in to learn about pricing, installing, cancellation policies, activation fees, etc.
Monitronics customers have the option to have an alarm, without monitoring. The security system will provide a basic level of protection, but will not call for help if there is a need. However, to maximize the protection offered by a home security system, additional monitoring is suggested.
Monitronics provides 24-hour monitoring services. As soon as the alarm is set off, Monitronics operators will jump into action. The operators will notify local authorities immediately and have them sent to your home.
Even after calling authorities, Monitronics operators will continue to monitor the situation. In the event of a fire, carbon monoxide, or medical emergency, you can trust the same processes will take place.
Monitronics Monitoring provides the following services/certifications:
- Redundant Alarm Response Center
- 24/7 Backup Monitoring Center
- Each CSAA-Certified operator has 96+ hours of training and 8 weeks of mentoring
- Monitronics Alarm Response Center has Five Diamond Certification from the Central Station Alarm Association
- Starts at just $39.95 per month

Monitronics monitoring can also switch your current security system over to their monitoring services if available. Upgrades are also available to your hardware or enhance your security system with extra features if offered.
