Highlights

  • SafeTouch does its own monitoring
  • Technology powered by Alarm.com

One factor that distinguishes SafeTouch from other home security companies is they keep their monitoring in-house whereas other companies will farm this out to a third-party. Some like ADT and Vivint have their monitoring performed in-house as well. Moreover, SafeTouch claims its employees undergo rigorous training and licensing to ensure you receive the most responsive and best service, and you’ll be able to trust the technicians coming into your home. Along with responsive service, its security equipment uses technology powered by Alarm.com, who earns an A+ rating with Better Business Bureau for its great reputation. All told, if you’re looking for a home security provider with the best personal service, it’s hard to beat what SafeTouch delivers.

Equipment

8 out of 10

Highlights

  • GC2 Panel features next-generation technology
  • Cameras feature versatile capabilities

SafeTouch’s GC2 panel uses GSM radio to  support up to 60 wireless zones. This is great for when more sensors are needed, especially in a larger home, and it provides a more reliable communication system. Moreover, the system features integrated two-way voice options, where you can speak with a monitoring agent any time you need to. Meanwhile, SafeTouch Security cameras offer convenient capabilities that make home monitoring easier. Its 180° indoor camera uses infrared night vision and tilt/zoom options to provide crystal clear images regardless of outdoor conditions. And its wireless outdoor camera provides detection of up to 40-feet for a large range of vision. When comparing SafeTouch’s equipment offerings, you’ll find similar equipment with other providers as well.

Installation

6 out of 10

Highlights

  • Simple, professional installation
  • No money down specials sometimes applies

SafeTouch offers professional installation services after you purchase a plan. This is where they’ll come to your home and offer different options for installation, allowing you to choose the best options for your needs. When reading SafeTouch security reviews on the provider’s website, it’s apparent customers enjoy this collaborative process. SafeTouch installation costs between $99 – $199, depending on the package you choose. This is comparable to ADT’s installation costs, yet there are providers, such as those with DIY systems that don’t require an installation fee.

Trial Period

8 out of 10

Highlights

  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • Three-year contract option after the trial period
  • Offers a lifetime warranty on its equipment

If SafeTouch does not resolve an issue related to your installation, equipment, or service, you can cancel within 30 days. This is relatively standard compared to other providers like Xfinity. Arguably, ADT, who offers a 6-month money-back guarantee, would be better for you if you’d like an extended period. If you decide to keep SafeTouch Security’s services, you’ll have to enter into a 3-year monitoring agreement, which is standard among many home security providers. One stand out benefit you’ll find with SafeTouch’s service is the lifetime warranty, which is a rarity among security providers.
