Vector Security: Our Pick for Customized Home Security
Headquartered in Pennsylvania, Vector Security serves over 385,000 customers. One of Vector Security’s biggest drawbacks is that they don’t offer home security solutions nationwide. They only provide service in Alabama, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland/Washington, D.C., Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. They’re expanding across the country, but if you’re located outside they’re coverage areas, you’ll have to consider a different provider.
You can choose between three packages with Vector Security: the Essential Security Package, Home Automation Package, and Connected Home Package. Their professional monitoring starts at $39.99/mo., but you have to provide your zip code and speak with a Vector Security expert to get a quote and equipment pricing.

How We Based Our Provider Ratings
PriceEach provider’s score is based on the affordability of equipment and professional monitoring services. Providers whose pricing on these two factors are lower received a better score from us. We know a security system is an investment, but it shouldn’t break your budget.
Stand-out FeaturesEach provider’s score is based on the innovative equipment offered like smart home products, smart home integration, security cameras, mobile apps and other features. Providers with more stand-out features receive a higher rating from us as we want you to have the best technology.
EquipmentEach provider’s score is based on special qualities of the products offered like cellular monitoring, hazard monitoring as well as smart home products. Providers who offer optional equipment receive a higher score. We believe that holistic safety services are beneficial to our readers.
InstallationEach provider’s score is based on clarity of how the home security system can be installed and access to support. Providers receive a higher score if the installation process is clear and customers have access to professional installation services or online guides.
Trial PeriodEach provider’s score is based on trial period, coverage and ease of service cancellation. Providers who offer a longer trial period, have great coverage terms and an easier cancellation process receive higher scores. Consumers should have enough time to test whether a home security system meets their needs and expectations.
