Installing an alarm system is a must these days. I decided to go with N&E b/c they are a family owned business and monitoring station they use is local and just as dependable as a big corporate company. They also mounted my flat screen and Bose surround system (they are Bose certified dealers)with NO VISIBLE WIRES!! The company has been around sense the 70's and the family is as nice as can be. I highly recommend this company!!
