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.
After that last post of mine the thought occurred to me of the three of us 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.
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.
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!!
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 f*ck out of the way. I'm taking over."
