Do We Pay For Home Security Components?

Other firms, like Vivint, will allow you to retain your system components. You can pay for all of your components at installation, where you get to pay having a lower monthly fee. Or finance equipment at 0% APR over time. Here, your monthly service fee will be bigger until you own the equipment.
