New gift account

I’d like to purchase a QolSys system from Surety as a gift for my son and his wife. I’d install it and then have them set up the monitoring under their name.
Is this the best way or should I just have them order the equipment from Surety and I’ll just reimburse them for the cost of the equipment?

The main thing to consider is the monitoring plan should be purchased by whoever will be managing the system and paying the bill. That way they can see the billing info and System Manager when they log in.

You can always purchase the equipment yourself and then just don’t set up the free month of monitoring that comes with it. Instead, have them purchase the monitoring plan separately under their own login.

It’s slightly simpler if they buy it all themself and you reimburse for the equipment but it doesn’t really matter either way. Whichever you prefer is fine.
