Honeywell has been manufacturing home security systems for over 60 years. The bulk of their systems are sold to local dealers and alarm installers. As a homeowner, you’re likely to purchase one of these systems at a high markup through your local alarm dealer, or need to sign a three-year alarm monitoring contract for $30-60/month to get a system installed.
