AutoPay Your Bill

What is autopay?

Auto pay is a feature in which you set up a recurring automatic monthly payment for your monthly bill. We automatically withdraw your payment every month using the debit, credit or checking account information provided to us.

Is autopay free?

Yes, setting up auto pay is a convenient way to ensure your bills get paid monthly and it comes at no additional cost to you.

I just enrolled in auto pay. When will my first automatic payment take effect?

During autopay set up, you can decide which day of the month works best for you for the recurring payment. We recommend not picking the last 3 days of the month.

How do I set up autopay?

To set up autopay, simply call us at 844-735-3285 and one of our customer experience specialists can sign you up and choose a date that’s convenient for you. To set this up, we will need a payment method such as a debit, credit card or checking account information.

How do I disable autopay?

Cancellation Processes and Policies

What happens when I want to cancel my contract?

Do you have a copy of your original agreement? If not, we can provide one for you.

You simply need to notify us in writing and return all of the equipment that was installed in your home. If you are cancelling before the initial agreement has expired, payment arrangements for unexpired months must be made prior to your account being cancelled.


Why do I have to give 60-days’s notice?

During that time, we must receive all equipment installed in your home to ensure it is not still active and sending signals to our monitoring center. During this 2-month period, monthly service fees are payable and auto-pay will be cancelled at the 60-day notice period. However, the faster we receive the equipment back the faster we can process your cancellation and stop billing.


Why does my notice have to be written?

Select Security needs proof that it is indeed you who are cancelling the security system services, and not someone else.


What forms of written notice do you require?

We accept an email with your name, address, city, state, zip code and customer number with the subject “Please Cancel My Service.” The email address that the cancellation request comes from must be the email address that we currently have on record for you.

We accept a written letter from the address that we currently have on record from you, requesting service cancellation.


What if I don’t use/have/remember the email address that you have on record?

If this occurs, your request will be escalated to the Customer Support Supervisor on duty, or to the General Manager.


After my cancellation has been confirmed, what do I do with my old security system?

You must remove the equipment and ship it to our office. Please use the following address:
ATTN: Select Security
