ADT has been around for years; in fact, it’s the oldest home security company in existence. In the 1800s, it was known as the American District Telegraph Company; nowadays, it is known as a highly reliable home security company. As such, their high quality products can be on the more expensive side. They prefer to do professional security system installation for their customers to ensure that the system is set up correctly and functions according to the homeowner’s desires.
Alarm Force is recognized for having good customer service and an ethic for hard work. It’s also more affordable and provides free professional installation with a very fair price for contracted monitoring services.
Broadview, formerly Brinks, is well known for its home security systems. These are durable and reliable and expensive. Customer reviews run generally middle ground about their customer service.
FrontPoint is usually at the top of home security reviews. They sell only cellular security systems now, which are easy to install and the most reliable of wireless systems. Their prices are also very affordable for what you receive. Customers are consistently pleased with their monitoring services.
Guardian also pleases customers who purchase from them, perhaps because they provide free professional installation for their security systems. They also have a great selection of products to choose from.
Lifeshield does not outsource its security equipment but makes it all within the company. Thus, customers know that this company really knows its products and can make them work. They’ve been marked as one of the fastest monitoring services of all security systems, and the Better Business Bureau gives them an A. Their prices are competitive on today’s home security market.
Pinnacle is new but growing, so it still has time to prove itself. But that means that the reviews are few in number. Still, of those available, the products are well-liked and the customer service is mixed.
Protect America is known for providing affordable security systems and services like free home security products when you sign a contract for monitoring services. Customers respect them for their good customer service.
Protection 1 is accredited by the BBB with an A+ rating. One of their highly valued services is that they have many overlapping central monitoring stations, which makes homeowners within the overlap range doubly covered. It’s their way of providing an extra guarantee for customer satisfaction.
SafeMart also does very well in home security reviews and provides the shortest monitoring service contract, which makes many customers happy to know that they’re not locked into something for several years.
Vivint really pushes the sales aspect of home security, which turns some customers off. Nonetheless, their products are high quality (and expensive) and utilize all the best new technological developments to keep them running.
