Is there anything available on the island similar to an ADT actively monitored home/biz alarm company?

I agree - there is no one to respond in a predictably timely manner. I have installed a security system that calls a sequential list of phone numbers when an alarm is triggered. The system tells you what caused the alarm - and it continues to call the list of programmed numbers until someone acknowledges the alarm. Of course I could program the system to call the police, however I have not done that,due to lack of confidence in a timely response. Outdoor lighting plus a yard dog are very good things as well.

You can get motion detectors for your home that trigger an exterior alarm that is loud enough to wake every neighbor within a couple mile radius and hopefully scare away the burglar! People would be running to your home just to shut the thing off. wink

Thank you for the replies.
I have a cctv system ready for installation that will trigger an email to a set distribution list with a .jpg photograph attached which shows the scene at the moment the alarm was triggered. It's backed up to a remote hard drive that can be hidden and secured.

If the alarm is triggered, I can deploy a counterinsurgent strike immediately. My strike team is comprised of me - armed with a flare gun, wasp spray, noise makers, a rock if I can find one, threatening words and an unfortunately high-pitched scream if the situation escalates. Iím trained and not afraid to use any of the above.
