Locally arm my home without monitoring
For personal reasons, we decided to cancel our monitoring with ATT Digital Life yesterday. I was under the impression that my equipment would still function locally (ie. I could still set an alarm for my house & an alarm would sound locally if someone came in, just wouldn't be "Monitored"), but have found out by a supervisor named "Alex" with ATT Digital Life that it cannot. First of all, is that true? If so, that's POOR! I have all this equipment that I bought with ATT to put alarms on my home that is completely useless unless I pay the monitoring fee?!
I will tell you that I've had ADT in the past and was able to use my equipment locally,even if we didn't opt for monitoring. So, if what Alex told me is true, guess who I won't EVER use in the future for home monitoring?!!
