Alarm System

I'm looking for an alarm system that has door/window monitoring with keypad and local alarm but not monitored remotely. It needs to be able to announce when a door is open. Basically a local alarm system.

Most basic systems will do what you want. External monitoring is not required with a system you install.

Monitoring is generally required with most alarm services since that's where they make their money. Heck, they often give you the alarm for free to tie you into their monthly monitoring fee.

Hello: Dean

Links in the "Related Ads" on the right side of this page has at least one and maybe more alarm systems to meet your requirements. One might be the SimpliSafe system. Self install and no requirement to have it monitored.

A web search displays additional local companies in your area which may be willing to sell their systems retail without a monitoring contract. Search around the web and also check the links to the lower right. Links often refresh each page visit here. First time visit has the links you'll want mostly.
