How much did you pay for an ADT system?

I was given a price quote for an ADT home security system. The price I was quoted was: $100 per glass break detector $150 per smoke detector $75 per door or window contact $299 for the 'wireless package'--1 keypad, 1 keyfob, 2 contacts, 1 motion detector The service would be $35/monthly. What have others paid for their security systems? Are these prices negotiable? I think they seem fairly high; is there a way to just buy the basic ADT package and add on things like glass break, smoke detector, etc., purchased elsewhere? Thank you for any help!

They will then sell your account to a company that actually monitors your system like ADT or Monitronics. These companies usually only sell during... More
