George Orwell wisely said “ We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm”. In today’s unpredictable world, being safe is as important as being alive. There are very few places which one can call “home” and the Home Security Systems make these special places safe and secure for us. When it comes to buying a Home Security System, there are numerous options available. But when it comes to the safety of our loved ones, we all want only the best.
Some of the factors which top the list while deciding on a Home Security System to buy are Technology, Pricing, Installation, Customer Service, and Monitoring. Here are the top three companies which make some of the best Home Security Systems in the market.
1. FrontPoint Security Systems: The Better Business Bureau, which accredits businesses in the United States and Canada, has given an “A” rating to the FrontPoint Security systems. With some of the best and the highest rating by customers, the FrontPoint Security Systems are in fact the best in the market today. Not only do they offer a total money return 30 day guarantee, but they also give warranty on the equipment and smash and grab protection. They truly understand the individual needs of every home and fulfill them accordingly. The prices and the offers listed on their website www.frontpointsecurity.com are all transparent with no hidden fees.
The Control Panel used in the equipment is GE Simon XT, which is one of the best in the market. With a compact design that can fit into any place in your home, 24 hour backup battery, and a two year warranty, it is an extraordinary brain behind this entire system. It makes a glaringly loud noise in case of any intrusion and immediately calls the monitoring station. A 100% cellular monitoring is just the icing on the cake.
Installing the small intrusion detection sensors is literally just a sticker peel away. These come with a two year replaceable battery and detect motion on small and big openings. Cameras in this security system come with a live feed, which helps in monitoring break ins and even pets when you are away from home. Environmental sensors in this system detect any type of weather and temperature changes, from floods to freezing rain, from smoke to a full blown fire.
Although many websites and stores carry this security system, the best place to buy it would be their official website, which not only helps you with all the offers there are but also provides options and quotes depending on your requirements and liking.
2. Protect America Security Systems: Having been in the alarm security business for more than 20 years, Protect America is one of the best and the most loved security systems by the customers. They not only offer individual security pieces to customize according to your needs and budget, but also price match any competitive systems in the market. All their plans come with totally free equipment. Flexible bundling as per your needs, control through any android or apple products, and no activation fee make them one of the best systems to have for protecting your homes and offices.
Their official website www.protectamerica.com features all the equipments, the options in bundling and customising, answers to some frequently asked questions, quotes on the various options, any discounts or offers, and contact to customer service offices where representatives are open to help you choose the best option for you.
As with FrontPoint Security System, the brain behind this system is also GE Simon XT. Some of the other equipments they offer include door/window sensor, glass break sensor, garage door sensor, motion detector, wireless keypad, panic button, video camera, and touchscreen. The biggest advantage of going with this system is that you can choose the type of monitoring (landline, broadband or cellular), and customize the equipment by choosing one of the packages (copper, bronze, silver, gold, platinum) they offer. All the equipments come with a lifetime warranty. The best place to order these equipment would be their website.
3. ADT Security Systems: The ADT Home Security Systems have been in the business for around 130 years making them the oldest and the most experienced in the market. With a variety of packages and monitoring services, they are one of the most reliable companies today. With around seven million customers all around the world, if you are looking for a company with the most experience in this market, ADT Security Systems is the way to go.
Basic, Two-way voice, Cellguard, Two-way voice plus Cellguard, and ADT Pulse are the packages that they offer and one can always choose the one that fits their requirements, or get help in choosing the right one from the customer service representatives. The process goes something like this, you first call and make an appointment with a security consultant, talk about all the options available and decide the best customized one for your needs, and then the the equipment will be sent to your home or office with a consultant who will manually install it.
ADT Security Systems provide monitoring services not only for intrusion, but also smoke, fire, carbon monoxide, medical alerts, and two-way monitoring. The monthly monitoring fee varies with the type of the package that you choose. They offer both landline and cellular monitoring options. Some small disadvantages with this system is that you have to rely on a professional consultant to come and install it, you can’t do it yourself, plus since a person comes and does it, it involves a reasonable though small installation fee.
Some of the other features that they provide include remote access, storm safety management, wireless security, video surveillance, energy management, and medical alerts. So if you are one of those people who believe that old is gold, then you should definitely go for the ADT Security Systems. Again like the other two systems discussed here, the best place to order it from would be their official website www.adt.com.
