Default Home Monitored Alarm Systems

My wife is on this kick to get one. I have an existing home. So it needs to be retrofitted. I have two adult dobermans that roaming the house during the day.
So I need one that Is pet friendly. The garage is a MUST for being monitored.

Experiences good /bad?
Installation estimated fees?
Monthly cost? (monitoring)

I would like it linked to my cell phone too with video.

Home security alarm system ... I went with ADT ... about 125 dollars a month. Must say they don't kid around when they think there's an emergency. They're right on it.

I went with SafeMart. You can buy all the stuff online and install it yourself. The monitoring is with Alarm.com. I pay $480 per year all at once. I spent $2400 on the window and door sensors for 20 windows and doors, two cameras, motion detection, water sensor, temp sensor, a couple of wall outlets to control lights, and a thermostat.

All battery powered, wireless.

Pros: save money
No wires or drilling
Fine system
No installer in your home
Support was great
Its awfully easy!!!!
You can arm the system with or without motion detection, a must for dogs!

Cons: you have to do it yourself
And you gotta have patience
Adding the remote cams to your WI FI is tricky

Whatever a good system costs, it's worth it.
