The plans and packages provided do NOT include the cost of the equipment required to take full advantage of the features. In order to use the security functionalities of these packages, we have a range of products to choose from that will be required to meet your needs. Pricing on equipment will vary according to customer needs. You can expect equipment costs to start at $300 for a 3 bedroom home, this is for basic security service.

Adding home automation, video monitoring and other features offered by our service packages will require compatible devices. Equipment pricing will be discounted depending on length of time for payment. We may be able to re-purpose some old equipment from other providers - call for more information. Below is an example of what you could pay allowing TechKinect to protect your home.

It is important to understand that this is a simple example and will only apply to a very specific customer. Product availability, costs and compatibility will vary. 

Ex. Mike has a 3 bedroom home with 2 entry doors, 1 garage, 1 desired motion-detection area, and has 4 windows in his home. Mike will need the following components for his interactive security system to work according to his needs:

  • 1 Basic Security Panel $125

  • 1 Garage Tilt Sensor $50

  • 1 Image Motion Detector $50

  • 2 Contact Sensors $80 total ($40 each)

  • 4 Glass Break Sensors $200 total ($50 each)

Mike will expect to pay $505 in equipment costs for this system. Mike makes a payment of $205 at the time of installation (includes a discounted installation fee) and breaks up the remaining cost of $355 over the next 2 months for payments of $175 each month.

 

Lets say Mike wanted to sign a 24 month contract, he would be eligible to split his equipment costs over the course of his 24 month contract. Lets assume Mike went with Home Basic plan @ $25 per month. Mike would owe $100 for installation and he would pay $22 per month ($505 / 24 months)  PLUS his $25 per month for his residential service plan and professional monitoring. This would be a total of $47 per month with a 2 year agreement. 

TechKinect can be flexible with your situation. Long-term contracts and equipment costs over $400 may require a soft credit evaluation. Contact us to find out how we can help you.
