Shop & Compare...The choice is Clear

The Monitoring Center is committed to providing Security + Savings. We welcome the opportunity to compare our Installations, Products and service plans to those of our competitors.

We are the only security company that separates the cost of alarm monitoring from the cost of your alarm system.

With TMC, you pay for your alarm system up front and you retain 100% ownership of your alarm system. As illustrated in the comparison shopping below, none of our competitors step up to the plate and deliver ownership of your equipment until the end of your 3 year term. This spells "leasing your equipment" NOT "a free alarm system". They just keep charging you the combined rate month-after-month, year-after-year. You have already paid for your alarm equipment and your monthly monitoring rate should now drop down to the cost of monitoring only ... but it does not drop. In fact, more often than not ... they increase their monthly monitoring rate.

TMC will always deliver High Quality, Low Cost alarm monitoring. Monitoring which is purchased in one year blocks giving our clients the freedom to choose.

  • No Hassles
  • NO over-charging
  • NO long term contract
  • Just affordable...dependable...full-service alarm monitoring 24/7
  • Whew!!! What a relief

The tables below compare TMC's pricing to the pricing of our competitors. As shown in the first table, TMC's monitoring-only rate is ONLY $9.99/month, which is 60% to 70% less than any of our competitors. Please take the time to calculate your savings and see just how shocking the amount of money you save over the course of several years can be. Moreover, as shown in the second table, if you need an alarm installation, we can install a complete alarm package for starting as low as $249.00. Please visit our Products sections to make full comparisons.


  • Once the system is paid for our customer retains full ownership of their equipment
  • We install only universal equipment such as Honeywell, Resolution, or DSC which can be monitored by any alarm monitoring facility. TMC customers never lose their total FREEDOM to choose alarm providers...
