According to my local police department, most burglars are in the house less than a minute..

Not taking into account the added benefits of Alarm monitoring like medical emergencies, and fire, I'd still pay.

And incidentally; about robbing a house in under a minute....

I just ran from my front door, up the stairs, into the master suite, directly to my wife's jewelry (which is NOT where someone would normally look) back down the stairs and to the front door.

35 Seconds.

Unless you know EXACTLY where what you are looking for is, and skip the rest of the house, you ain't getting squat off me.

Nope...sorry...but for the peace of mind, safety of my family, and the insurance discount, I will continue to pay for my monitoring.
