Home Security Categories We Rate

  • Price

    We don’t believe you have to break the bank for adequate home security, and we rate providers accordingly. We look at equipment costs, monitoring price, and contract length to help determine our ratings.

  • Standout Features

    Are there any features that help a provider stand out from the rest? We look for features like smart home capabilities, remote arming & disarming, home environmental monitoring devices, and more.

  • Equipment

    It’s important to know your equipment options before choosing a provider. We rate providers based on how easy it is to learn about their equipment offerings.

  • Installation

    It’s important to know which type of installation your security system will require. We check to see how easy it is to find information regarding installation and if there are any fees involved.

  • Trial Period

    Need 30 days or as long as 6 months? Find a provider with the appropriate trial length for you, giving you enough time to test out your security system and make sure it fits your needs.

  • Home Automation

    Put light, lock, thermostat, and garage door control at the touch of your finger tips with smart home devices. If voice control suits your fancy, look for security systems that are compatible with smart hubs.
