Moni Security Profile

Today's Date: October 17, 2019

Formally known as Monitronics, MONI is a professional alarm monitoring service that has built its reputation on fast, effective alarm response. They have over 1 million customers across the US, with highly ranked customer satisfaction and an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau.

MONI recently partnered with home security company Nest to offer an integrated, end-to-end security solution. With Nest’s state-of-the-art security equipment and MONI’s 24/7 professional monitoring, you can have added peace of mind knowing your home is fully protected.

Getting Started

There are three simple steps to getting set up with MONI. First, you’ll need to purchase your Nest home security equipment. Equipment can be purchased through MONI or directly through Nest. Pricing will be the same either way – see below for more information on pricing and equipment.

Next up: installation. Nest’s equipment is self-install, and you’ll receive detailed step-by-step instructions to guide you through installation. If you find setup to be too complicated or you just want to save yourself some time, you can also search for a Nest Pro (aka a professional Nest installer) to do it for you instead. Nest has thousands of installation partners across the country, so you should be able to find someone near you with ease.

Once you’ve purchased and installed your Nest home security equipment, you can sign up for monthly monitoring through MONI. They offer different rates depending on whether you want to sign a long-term agreement or pay month-to-month. As soon as you’ve signed up, you’ll receive an email that will let you activate your monitoring plan.

Plans

MONI offers flexible professional monitoring plans, giving customers the option to choose between month-to-month or longer-term agreements. Currently, their rates are $19/month with a 3-year agreement or $29/month for month-to-month.

These plans cover 24/7 professional monitoring services by MONI but do not include the cost of equipment. Professional monitoring means MONI’s Alarm Response Center will be signaled if an alarm is triggered by your security equipment. Their trained response team will work quickly to determine the nature of the alarm and notify emergency responders if needed, proactively following the situation and staying engaged until the alarm is successfully resolved.

Equipment

As we mentioned before, MONI has partnered with Nest to offer premium home security equipment with its professional monitoring. Nest has a wide range of security devices to choose from, but the most popular option MONI recommends is the Nest Secure starter pack for $499. This includes the Nest Guard, two Nest Tags, and two Nest Detect sensors (with required batteries included).

Nest Guard: The brains of the system. Nest Guard acts a home base from which you can arm and disarm your security system, as well as a loud alarm and motion sensor with battery backup. It has three security levels (alarm off, home and guarding, away and guarding), a keypad for passcode entry, and a panic button.

Nest Tag: These handy devices provide an easy way to arm and disarm your security system without a passcode. Just tap your Nest Tag on your Nest Guard as you exit and enter your home to tag yourself in and out. You can give one to family members, neighbors, friends, dog walkers or anyone you trust. You can also easily disable a lost Nest Tag right from the Nest app.

Nest Detect: These two-in-one sensors can be stuck on doors, walls or windows. On a wall, they detect motion. On a window, they detect open/close. On a door, they can detect both motion and open/close.

There are multiple convenient ways to arm and disarm your Nest Secure system. Use the Nest app on your smartphone to arm and disarm from anywhere, tap Nest Tag on Nest Guard as you come and go, ask your Google Assistant to arm for you, or enter a passcode on Nest Guard’s keypad. It’s up to you.

All equipment comes with a 2-year limited warranty.

Pricing

With MONI, you pay a monthly fee for 24/7 professional monitoring in addition to the cost of equipment. Monthly monitoring ranges from $19/month for a 3-year agreement to $29/month for month-to-month.

Equipment starts at $499 for the Nest Secure starter pack, which includes 1 Nest Guard, 2 Nest Detects, and 2 Nest Tags. You can add an outdoor security camera for an extra $100. Extra Nest Detects are $59, extra Nest Tags are $25, and you can purchase a Nest Security yard sign for $19. Free expedited shipping is also available.

Equipment can be purchased upfront or financed for as low as $21/month for 24 months with 0% APR (based on a purchase price of $499). Monthly payments can be made over 6, 12, 18, or 24 months.

All prices are subject to change.
