New Security System Installations
If you do not currently have an existing system, and require a system installation, Texstar will install a basic alarm system in your home for no charge with our standard 36 month monitoring agreement @ $24.95/mo + tax.
Your basic home security system includes the following:
- 1 Honeywell V15P control panel
- 1 Honeywell 6150 Keypad
- 3 Door contacts OR activate all pre-wired openings
- 1 Passive Infrared Pet Motion detector
- 1 106 db interior siren
- 1 Back-up battery
Should your home require wireless equipment, there may be additional costs involved.
It is Important to File Your Alarm Permit
To ensure that the police respond to your alarm dispatch, you must file your alarm permit.
If you live within the city limits of Friendswood, you will need a City of Friendswood alarm permit. The residential alarm permit cost is $36, and the commercial alarm permit cost is $72. The City of Friendswood may fine you if your alarm permit is not filed and you have a false alarm, so we want to ensure that this does not happen to our customers.
If you live outside of the city limits of Friendswood, but out in Harris County, then you will need a Harris County alarm permit. The cost is $35 the first year, and then $10 per year thereafter.
No Phone, No Problem
Don’t have a home phone line? No problem. Texstar Alarm Systems can install a GSM cell unit to transmit the alarm signals via the wireless network.
There is an additional cost involved for the GSM unit, but most times it is far more economical than connecting a home phone line just so you can have your alarm monitored.
But in addition to not having to have a phone line, if the burglar thinks they can get around your security system by cutting your phone line, they are in for a surprise.
A Monitored Home Security System May Lower Your Homeowners Insurance
Most insurance companies offer a discount for having a monitored home security alarm system. In most instances, the discount is 10%.
Some (but not all) insurance companies will offer an additional 5-10% if you add monitored fire to your system.
Contact your insurance agent regarding the discounts that you may have available.
