About Our Home Security System Company Reviews

Learn about how we created our home security system company reviews

We review individual security systems, but we think that it’s important to review the companies that offer the services as well. While some home security system companies may offer great home security systems, they may lack in other important areas like customer service or support. Our experts felt that providing company reviews is just as important as reviewing the individual security systems offered by each company.

Here are some frequently asked questions about our home security system company reviews:

The company you choose for your home security system is just as important as the price, equipment, and quality of the security system itself. We see some security system companies offer great solutions, but the company itself has many issues. We feel that the reputation of each home security system company is an important factor that consumers should research before making a decision.

Help consumers research and choose the best home security system company
We’re dedicated to helping consumers choose the best home security system company and we know the importance of that mission. The stakes are high when it comes to keeping families safe and we know that consumers rely on our recommendations to make decisions. We review the best home security companies and provide information that can help you choose which company you want to do business with.

Help consumers save time while searching for the best security system companies
There are lots of resources for finding security system reviews, but most review sites do not focus on the company. Home security system companies offer similar services, but some excel in things like customer service, support, and innovation. We help consumers quickly find information about the company in our security system reviews, which you won’t find on other security system review sites. Our experts focus on only reviewing companies that have a track record of serving customers with the best home security solutions.

Help consumers save money when choosing a security system company
Each company has different pricing when it comes to their home security system, but our experts know which companies are willing to work with potential customers on price. In addition to our security system reviews of each company, we provide helpful tips and strategies to save money while finding the best deal. Saving consumers money makes our service unique and proves that we’re always looking out for the consumer’s best interest.

Our process of reviewing each security system company is very similar to the way that we review the individual security systems they offer. We actually conduct both reviews at the same time, but focus on a few different things. Our company reviews are primarily focused on the history, innovation, and customer service. Our experts want to make sure that consumers are choosing a company that is going to be in business for a while and is going to continue to offer great solutions in the home security industry.

Secretly shop and review the best home security system companies
When we conduct our security system reviews, we secretly shop at the best home security system companies. We pose as consumers and actually interact in the purchase process from each home security system company. The process allows us to see what companies claim, pitch, and live up to. We ask the questions that consumers should be asking and put together a review based on the findings our experts document through the process.

Create a comprehensive review of the top security system companies
After conducting research as consumers, our experts write the most comprehensive security system company reviews. We include all the information that a consumer would need to know to choose, buy, and find the best deal on a home security system. Our reviews are detailed, but not too detailed that it’s overwhelming for the average consumer. No other site offers security system reviews like ours and we’re committed to keeping it simple.

Vote to choose the best home security system companies
After identifying a list of the best home security system companies, our team votes to decide which ones get placed on the site. There are several companies that we reviewed that are not found on the site. Only the companies that got unanimous votes are listed on our site and that ensures that we are only recommending the best home security companies to consumers. Our listings are not decided by a listing fee or payment from any company. It’s our experts agreeing on which home security system companies are the best solutions for consumers.

Our home security experts are the ones that pick our list of the best home security system companies. They conduct their research during the review process and determine what companies are offering the best overall solutions for consumers. Our experts are familiar with the leading home security system companies and only choose the companies that are going to continue offering great solutions.

Hire experts that have years of experience dealing with security system companies
Our experts know each of the home security system companies that we review very well. All of our experts have been in the industry for years and dealt with these companies over the years. We have unique experience dealing with these companies and know exactly what the pros and cons of each company are. Very few security system review sites have expertise to make recommendations on the best home security system companies.

Our experts conduct the reviews of the best home security system companies
We’re one of the few review sites that actually have home security experts conduct our reviews. Our experts purchase home security systems for consumers and document their experience. Our experts are not professional writers or internet marketing experts. They are all home security experts that know how to properly review a home security system company.

Remain unbiased while creating our list of the security system companies
Our home security experts develop our list of the best security system companies, and they are all committed to remaining unbiased throughout the process. The team is dedicated to serving consumers and does not favor any company. Our recommendations are purely based on the quality of the service each home security company offers. Our experts are not paid and do not work for any of the companies that we review.

Every couple months, our experts follow up to ensure that the information in our reviews is up-to-date and accurate. The team follows up with customers that have purchased systems from each company and asks them if the information on our site is accurate. The process is time consuming, but keeps our information relevant and helpful for consumers.

Quarterly updates on our list of homes security system companies
Every few months, our experts come together to make sure that the information in our reviews is up-to-date and accurate. We also follow up with customers that have purchased systems from each company and ask them about their continued experience with the company. The process is time consuming, but keeps our information relevant and helpful for consumers.

Constantly monitor each of the best security system companies
We constantly monitor the best home security system companies that we review on our site. If they change pricing, change their strategy, or release new services, we list that information on our site. Our list of the best security companies is small enough that we’re able to keep track of the companies throughout the year.

    Is there a way I can chat with one of these security companies online or through email? I don’t get to use my cell phone during the day at work and most of the time the sales office is closed by the time I get home and get settled. I would really like to knock out my research and make a decision fast. If these really are the best security companies I would hope they tailor to the digital world!

      Hi Jason!

      Yes most security system companies will allow you to chat with them online or via email. If you visit the companies website there should be an area for a Live Chat session or an area where you can email them. All of the top security companies like FrontPoint Security, LifeShield, and Protect America have this option. If you have trouble finding ways to get in touch with them please let us know and we’ll do our best to help. Thanks!

    Do any (or all) of these top security system companies offer service in Ontario, Canada? I live in the Toronto area and have had a hard time finding a good security company. There are a few local Canadian security companies but I haven’t been impressed with them so far. The companies here offering wireless security systems seem pretty good and I wouldn’t mind giving one of them a shot. I also have some questions about exchange rates etc. Any advice for a Canadian homeowner looking for a solid new security system?

      Thanks for coming by security system reviews. Yes most all of the best security system companies on our list provide service in Canada. We do know that FrontPoint Security, ADT, Vivint, and Protect America all service Canada.

      As for exchange rates etc. that may differ by which security system company you choose service from. You should call the security companies you are interested in to ask them about exchange rates and how this may effect your monitoring rate. It will likely have no effect on the up-front cost for security system equipment.

    I have to say the top security system company reviews were perfect for me. I read ALL the security system reviews here before picking my top two and calling. I ended up purchasing a security system from FrontPoint Security. I have to say my experience could not have been better. The consultant helped me “build” a system that was perfect for my house. I was a little weary that someone could help me with sensors and whatnot without ever seeing my house, but it made me a part of the process, and helped me understand my own home’s security better than any could simply tell me. Now I’m aware of the possible problem areas around my home, and I’m glad they are secure. FrontPoint really is a top security system company with one of the best security systems. It’s wireless. Check. It’s easy. Check. And FrontPoint’s customer service is on point. Double Check.

    As for the customer service aspect, I had a damaged sensor when I got my system (wasn’t FrontPoint’s fault). I called them when I was installing to ask about getting a replacement. I was thinking it would take another few days before I received it. FrontPoint sent me a new sensor overnight, and it didn’t keep me from installing the rest of my sensors and activating my system. I just popped the sensor in place the next day and called FrontPoint to have it checked. All good. Seriously love the ease of the system and my wife LOVES the home automation stuff. She keeps messing with me turning lights on and off and stuff while I’m home and she’s at work or out with her friends. She’s a funny one! If you’re looking for a new home security system take a look at FrontPoint. They say not everything is for everyone but I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t be happy with FrontPoint.

    Is there a chart of some kind I can use for comparison? Something that I might be able to print so I can show my wife? She is not very computer savvy, and I’m not the great either. We need a new home security system pretty badly. There have been some major burglaries in the neighborhood of late. I have looked at the reviews for many of these home security system companies but it’s tough to break it all down to the wife (she is young at heart but old in mind!). A chart that I can print would be very helpful if you have one. If not I will do my best. Thank you for the effort.

    All of these security companies seem impressive! What a tough choice! Are there any significant differences of FrontPoint, Protect America, and LifeShield? As far as the security company reviews it appears the main difference is the up-front pricing, while monthly monitoring could be higher with a couple than another. As far as cost goes it seems all of these companies are right in line with one another. Are there any other major differences not shown in the security system company reviews I should be aware of to help make a decision? Thanks!

      Hello! FrontPoint, Protect America, and LifeShield are all very reputable security companies, you’d have a tough time going wrong with any of them. As far as price they all come out to about the same over the contract period. It will basically come down to which company you like the best. We would suggest calling FrontPoint, Protect America, and LifeShield to obtain a valid price quote and ask questions. This is the best way to narrow down your search and select a great security system company!
