Can the group recommend a monitoring service for a Ademco Lynxr panel
that has been working fine for many years? My service provider is going
out of business at the end of June 2020 and I need to sync up with
another service. I am currently paying 14.95 per month to monitor my
system, which has about 24 zones.

Call all your local companies and pick one.  Really.  I would personally  
not choose one with that is a dealer for a big national, but that's  
really up to you.

Of course this reminds me a little of some custom mold customers I get.  
"Will you make custom molds for me?  I used to have a guy that made them  
really really cheap."

"What do you mean used to?  If he does it really cheap why don't you  
keep using him?"

"Oh he doesn't return my emails or my calls any more."

"Ever consider he's tired of doing work for really really cheap for you,  
and maybe he is taking other work that allows him to make a living?"

CLICK!

Or maybe he's going out of business because he hasn't increased his prices  
along with his expenses.

sitting in rocking chairs out on the front porch, each with a 3 day growth  
of beard, feet up on the railing, a cup of cocoa and we're all just complai
ning the hell out of everything.  

HEH HEH HEH ---- Yessiree ---- dag nab it !

I've been working everyday.  I don't have to see a customer for months  
and be busy as heck, although I had two drop by yesterday.

I'm still trying to figure out what a chromogen is.  Is it a device  
where you drop in raw matter and it is converted at the atomic level to  
chromium?

Quit making up words you old curmudgeon.



I have little patience for people any more.

*** Work ***
Me:  "I only give discounts for quantity five (5) or more."

Them:  "How about a bigger discount for just three (3)?"

Me:  "Thank you for the opportunity.  I'm sorry that you are no longer  
interested in my product.  Please feel free to let me know if you change  
your mind."


*** Fishing ***
Me:  "There is a hazard to the left past that corner.  Hold right, but  
cut left brushing the corner to avoid damage to your boat and we should  
clear the hazard just fine.  If you want fish the corner first put the  
boat in reverse as the bow starts past the corner.  Do not allow the  
boat to drift to far down the channel to the right or you will get  
caught in a fast current and there is no place to turn around for more  
than half a mile."

Them:  "We are past the corner with the drive disengaged and drifting  
aimlessly."

Me:  "Get the fuck out of the way.  I'm taking over."

I totally agree with all of that except for the beard thing.
Never had one, don't know what it is like to have one.
I have said in the past that if I found a bottle with a Genie
inside and he granted me 3 wishes.  The first would be
"I would like to have a full beard for just a month."

Just want to the experience and then I am good!!!

As for the other things on the porch I would guess the stories
and complaints would be rather fun!!

Yup, you betcha!!

Jack,

Your first goal should be is to make sure your have the dealer programming  
code from your present dealer. If he goes away and you don't have the code  
you'll have to have a new main panel installed.

After that you should call around to some local, ( not national companies l
ike ADT, Vivint, or your cable or power companies) and do some shopping. Yo
ur present pricing is pretty low. Obviously, be careful about shopping for  
the lowest price when it comes to the security of your home and family. You
 want a company that's been around for awhile but not a big company where y
ou only become an account number in their file. Try to find a company where
 the central station is not across the country 10 states away.

Make sure the company that you choose is familiar with your equipment. You  
don't want someone to come to  your home just to get you as an account but  
who doesn't have the expertise to program and trouble shoot your system.
