The Protect America monitoring center might secretly hate me, but I have to write and say that I love them. They have patiently (and quickly!) responded to every single false alarm at our house, set off by cats and kids and even a freak wind storm one time. And unlike the “boy who cried wolf,” the fact that our house has triggered so many alarms does not seem to make any difference to that response time. If we ever actually DO have an emergency, I know they’ll be there calling us in a matter of seconds.
