Frontpoint is a highly rated monitoring provider, according to security system review websites SafeWise and A Secure Life. The price ranges from $34. 99 to $49. 99 monthly — a tad pricey, but the system runs on cellular technology, which means you don't have to worry about cut wires, loss of Internet connection or power outages. Depending on where you live, you could choose a local security company for a couple of reasons.

In some implementations, the server system 164 is a video processing server that provides video processing services to video sources and client devices 220. In some implementations, each of the video sources 222 includes one or more video cameras 118 or doorbell cameras 106 that capture video and send the captured video to the server system 164 substantially in real time. In some implementations, each of the video sources 222 includes a controller device not shown that serves as an intermediary between the one or more cameras and the server system 164. The controller device receives the video data from the one or more cameras, optionally performs some preliminary processing on the video data, and sends the video data to the server system 164 on behalf of the one or more cameras substantially in real time. In some implementations, each camera has its own on board processing capabilities to perform some preliminary processing on the captured video data before sending the processed video data along with metadata obtained through the preliminary processing to the controller device and/or the server system 164. In accordance with some implementations, each of the client devices 220 includes a client side module. The client side module communicates with a server side module executed on the server system 164 through the one or more networks 162. The client side module provides client side functionality for the event monitoring and review processing and communications with the server side module. The server side module provides server side functionality for event monitoring and review processing for any number of client side modules each residing on a respective client device 220. The server side module also provides server side functionality for video processing and camera control for any number of the video sources 222, including any number of control devices and the cameras. In some implementations, the server system 164 includes one or more processors 212, a video storage database 210, an account database 214, an I/O interface to one or more client devices 216, and an I/O interface to one or more video sources 218.
