Monitoring service? I bet you won't choose it.
Hardly the monitoring service providers (or companies) can make sales increasing in 2014. In the one hand, they are experiencing huge competition from "DIY" system from their competitors. On the other hand, the high running cost is killing their profit, this not only push more and more users to choose the "DIY" system, but also lower the service's quality.

Prefer the accurate detection alarm system
High false alarm rates definitely are one of important factor make users don't install alarm system or uninstall the system. Solving or decreasing false alarm rates become one of important responsibility for security equipment manufacturer.

Adopting high quality detection sensor to ensure the accurate detection can decrease false alarm rate significantly, especially for those families with pets.
Pets can cause lots of false alarm, especially for passive infrared sensors (PIR motion sensor). Traditional passive infrared motion sensor can pick up movement both from human and pets. If the protection area with pets passby, you'd better choose pet-immune motion sensor or not install PIRs in there.
Video verification is the one of strategy for reducing the consequence of false alarm. Wireless alarm can work with IP camera for smart protection and monitoring. The IP camera not only can allow users to watch video footage in real time over smartphone remotely, but also can allow user to make alarm verification, once an alarm is tripped.
