The great thing about today’s consumer landscape is choices.
Whether you’re shopping for breakfast cereal, living room furniture or even a home security system, there

including Bright House Networks in Orlando, began offering home security

decision. Just don’t rank it above all the other factors combined. Once you’re
comfortable with a company’s service, technology and reputation, then talk to a
consultant to find the best package to fit both your security needs and your
