What Sets Smith Thompson Home Security Apart?

The folks at the family-owned Smith Thompson Home Security company know what it’s like to be a burglary victim. When founder Mark Thompson’s father died in 1978, his family returned home from the funeral to find their house in shambles and their most valuable possessions stolen. Armed with personal experience and a desire to help other people avoid a similar loss, Thompson and his team have built a first-rate home security company, earning a 5-star rating on Trustpilot and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Smith Thompson serves the Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, Texas, areas, with home security monitoring starting at just $16.95 per month.

Our take

The Wireless + Standard App option includes everything in the Wireless Monitoring package and enables you to control your home security system from your smartphone.
