  2. Self Monitored – You would set up your Bend security system so it will notify you through your smartphone. This lets you call the police yourself, run home real quick or contact a neighbor. It may not be the quickest way to monitor your alarm system. However, it can cost hardly anything depending on your alarm system.

All you have to do is arm and disarm your alarm system, and they will watch everything for you.
