What is the difference between local monitoring and in-house monitoring?

In many cases, Gillmore Security can monitor existing alarm equipment. Please call to schedule a complimentary inspection to see if Gillmore Security can monitor for you.

I have pets, is that a problem?
Gillmore Security standardizes on equipment designed to ignore certain pets. Newer technology allows for your pets to move freely throughout the house.
