About Louisville

About Louisville

Known to the locals as America’s “biggest small town,” Louisville has plenty to offer in terms of big-city culture and outdoor adventure. With a gorgeous inner-city park system designed by Frederick Law Olmstead and a 100-mile loop of recreational parks encompassing the city, Louisville provides its residents with plenty of opportunities to get out of the house and enjoy the weather. And on rainy days, residents can explore exhibits at the Muhammad Ali Museum, Speed Art Museum, Frazier History Museum, or take a tour through the Louisville Slugger Factory or Churchill Downs, the world-renowned home of the Kentucky Derby. 

Don’t let concerns about home security prevent you from enjoying all that Louisville has to offer. Explore the best local home security providers in the area, and find the right one for your home.

Factors to Consider When Buying a Home Security System

Factors to Consider When Buying a Home Security System

  • Price & Contracts

    Are you looking to pay for your equipment upfront or finance over a period of time? You’ll also need to decide whether you want to commit to a contract or have the freedom to cancel your provider’s service without penalty.

  • Monitoring

    Choose between 24/7 professional monitoring or self monitoring. Both have its perks – with professional monitoring, a specialist is available around the clock to help, and with self monitoring, you’ll be in charge and can avoid a monthly fee.

  • Installation

    Want a professional to install your security system for you, or would you rather install it on your own? Most providers either require professional installation, DIY installation, or offer a choice of both.
