We have some very nasty neighbors, and while we don't expect everybody to be friendly, we don't expect anyone to be an asshole either. We actually are worried they will break into our place while we are away, so we would like to hire a security company to install a security system and monitor our place. Any recommendations?

You might not need a monitored system, there are many choices out there. I have a non-monitored system at my office, it's on a motion sensor, and the footage goes to the cloud every day for seven days. Next Monday data will override the previous Monday, and so on. While it's not monitored, it's good for what we need. Check COSTCO and AMAZON for prices. (WARNING! Naked women don't come to our office!) :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have a monitored system at home. Works the same way with a motion sensor, and it notifies both the security company and the police if there is an intrusion. Check with Alert Hawaii and ADT Home Security for prices, they are the two largest companies providing this kind of service in Kona.

My car has been vandalized three times at the condo where I live, and I asked the AOAO to let me install a security camera in my carport. They didn't approve it, but I have it monitored anyway. While they don't care about my car, I do. It's a wireless camera feeding the data to the cloud. Works pretty much the same way as the system at my office.

Avoid ADT. I got them when they bought out Brinks. Lots of false alarms with shoulder shrugs as to why. If you get called for a false alarm, their service is rude as hell. They're also kind of behind the other service as for equipment. Plus, when I cancelled at the end of the contract I couldn't get a straight answer out of them. They kept changing their mind as to whether I owed them money. They came up with $35 finally and were quite obnoxious about it.

When I went to Comcast (yes, that Comcast) it was like a light went on. New fangled equipment and the service on calls is polite as heck. Only draw back is they want a "truck fee" when they send someone out and you have to be pretty hardcore to get them to waive it.

This industry has evolved big time, you can get security cameras hidden in light bulbs, clocks, etc. We have a system that automatically calls the police if there is a break-in. (I always wondered if the police would respond to such a call.) There are many options to chose from, and I think these security companies eventually will go out of business.

I was too embarrassed to ask what 'cloud' was, but the RING explains it! Thank you! :!:

If your neighbor is an asshole than no security system will help, get a gun.

I don't necessarily agree with Paniolo, not all assholes are violent. I would be more afraid of the mentally unstable ones, like the ones sitting in their cars communicating with UFOs, or the paranoid ones, like those who think the whole world is out there to get them. Of course if your neighbor is all three, than don't get a gun, get a cannon! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Any Secret Service agent worth a damn, keeps a roll of aluminum foil in his desk. It's got to be aluminum, not tin. There's a difference.

It's not one neighbor, it's the whole family. All of them fit into one or more of those categories. Maybe it's time for me to get an AK-47. Oh, that could be illegal. Maybe a sword. :whdat:
