As a matter of fact….Link Home Security has a 98% customer approval rating , and their parent company, Mountain Alarm, has not had a single BBB complaint filed against them in the last 12 months!

Is Link Interactive DIY System Easy to Install?

 

Having been around the security world for a while, I have been on “ride alongs” and watched (and helped…sort of) installers drilling holes and fishing wires. Consequently, I’ve learned lots of creative profanity as seasoned professional technicians expressed their frustrations when things didn’t go smoothly…or they had to wait on hold for what felt like an eternity (45+ minutes or more) waiting to field test communication lines and activate systems…after having to enroll and program each individual sensor.

Thankfully, technology has improved…and Link Interactive takes care of 90% of the process before the system is shipped out.  My test system arrived at my front door pre-programmed and ready to go,  via Fedex,  3 days after the order was placed.

 

What’s in the Box?

 

Each of the components was clearly numbered, and was already programmed into the system.  In addition, there was a folder that contained:

  1. List of Components and Zones
  2. Link Interactive Quick Start Installation Guide and One Page “cheat sheet”
  3. Alarm.Com Activation Instruction/Password and User Code
  4. Alarm.Com Quick Start Gide
  5. Comprehensive 2 Gig User Guide
  6. Window Stickers

Everything was clear and concise…with tech support and activation numbers clearly visible.

The system comes with all the components already programmed and “enrolled” in the system.  This is the most time consuming aspect of “installing” a system.  If you were to pay for “professional installation”, the majority of the time the installer is in the home involves enrolling and testing the system and activating and testing the cellular communication module.

All of these things are taken care of by the folks at Link- before it is shipped out.

All that was left for me was to mount the devices…perform a walk test and call in to activate!

Link even prints a QR code right on the box that you can scan with your cell phone and will take you right to a video demo if you are unsure of anything!

Getting Set Up with Link Interactive

 

In addition to the video mounting instructions, there are  written 2Gig instructions in the box and e-mail, chat and phone support are available as well.  The door sensors are most easily mounted using the enclosed 3M mounting adhesives.  Which are surprisingly secure.  There are also mounting screws available.

The motion detector has both a wall mount and corner mount bracket…and can be configured to screen out pets.

The 2 Gig Go!Control Panel can be either wall mounted or set up on the included desk mount.  It has already been equipped with rhe cellular antenna and the power supply was attached…so it literally just needs to be pligged in to a standard power outlet.

Once all the devices are mounted…one needs to “walk test” the system- to check that all the components are communicating properly.  This is very simple process…as the 2Gig user interface is very intuitive.

  1. Press the “Home Button” on the Control Panel
  2. Enter Security, Menu, Tool Box
  3. Enter Code (Temporary Code is 1111)
  4. Select System Test
  5. Then Open/Close or activate (walk in front of motion sensor)  each of the sensors and listen for voice confirmation

Don’t be shy about contacting customer support…as they are friendly and knowledgeable. I was unsure how to test the glass break sensor and the combination smoke/heat/freeze sensor…and found “Stephanie” pleasant and very helpful.

She instructed me to vigorously jingle my house keys right next to the sensor (Bingo!)…and that I needed to depress the button on the smoke sensor for a full 15 seconds to test all three elements of the smoke/heat/freeze sensor.

Helpful tip:  As this will activate a rather piercing siren, she suggested that I wrap it up in my jacket.  My LL Bean fleece worked admirably…and my eardrums appreciated her advice…

Once I completed the “walk test”….it was just a matter of calling in to activate the system, so that it is monitored.

Managing your Link Interactive Security System with Alarm.com

 

OK…your Link Interactive Security System is set up and active.  The 2 Gig Go!Control Panel’s color touchscreen control panel is very user friendly and a breeze to navigate.  (an you have a comprehensive user manual with all the details of the million and one functions and features-should you wish to spend a rainy day exploring more advanced functionalities)

Perhaps the most exciting innovation in the alarm industry over the past decade has been the development of mobile applications that allow you to monitor and manage your security and home automation system from an internet connection on your desktop computer,  tablet or mobile phone.  Alarm.com provides arguably the best platform on the planet to remotely control and manage your system.

It is compatible with Windows and Windows Phones, Apple IOS, Apple Watch, Pebble, Android and Blackberry….and is very clearly laid out and simple to set up. You can customize Scenes (a series of events…such as turning on light when the system is armed) and set up notifications when events occur…such as arming and disarming the system.

Just download the Alarm.com App from Itunes or Google Play….enter in your Link Interactive credentials…and you can control you system from the palm of your hand…from anywhere in the world with an internet connection!

Ease of Installation Summary – Link Interactive 2GIG System

 

So…in a nutshell…Yes, the Link Interactive system is easy to install.

More importantly, it is also easy to use.  The touchscreen has a very intuitive menu and icons that make it easy to navigate. And the Alarm.com  app makes it simple to control and customize the system while on the go.

But…don’t take my word for it…Link Interactive is willing to let you put them to the test with a No Questions Asked, 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.  Give them a call and see for yourself…You’ll be glad you did.

Why should I choose Link Security?

Why should I choose Link Home Security?

 

Experienced in the Evolution of Home Security!

One of the unique attributes of Link Interactive is the fact that they are one of the few companies that can offer the best of both worlds-combining the 60+ years of experience in the traditional local, professionally installed and monitored home security system, with a nationwide offering of the latest, cutting-edge, state of the art wireless equipment for the modern age do it yourselfer.

Let’s face it….the home security and automation market is exploding…and there are new DIY products hitting the market almost daily.  But Link Interactive has evolved with the times-and is one of the few companies that has successfully combined the old school, traditional, professionally installed security model with a more current, streamlined business model that appeals to the Do It Yourself market.

So what does that mean to you?

Essentially, with Link Interactive, you are getting your cake and eating it, too. Top of the line equipment…supported by a company with  60+ years of actually installing and servicing that equipment.  Need help?  Would you rather get support from a call center employee reading from a  manufacturer supplied trouble shooting script…or someone trained by service technicians with years of real world field installation experience?

Custom Capabilities

Lnk Interactive Custom Equipment Infographic

Because Link Interactive has extensive experience in both wireless and hard-wired installations…they offer a wider array of products to customize home security systems to meet the demands of unique installations that don’t necessarily conform to standard pre-packaged installations.  (In Link Interactive Leads the Way with Innovative Sensors and Solutions we discuss this in greater detail.)

While the trend in the DIY home security is to offer basic pre-programmed kits with magnetic sensors that are mounted with industrial 2-sided tape…not everyone is amenable to having transmitters mounted on their custom mahogany entry door.

What if I don’t want transmitters mounted on my doors?Link Interactive Home Security System Review-Entry Door

Unlike many strictly wireless DIY companies, Link Interactive offers custom security solutions for the more ambitious DIY’er. In addition to the standard and mini door/window contacts offered in most wireless security system packages, Link Interactive offers a variety of alternate options to protect entry ways.

  • Embedded Contacts- A recessed contact which is embedded into the door frame with a magnet inside the door
  • Plunger Style Door Contacts-A one piece plunger sensor that is concealed in the door frame

Both of these options are easily installed by the DIY homeowner who is a handy with a drill…and a little bit of expert advice from the folks at link Interactive…who have been installing them in the field for years.

System Takeovers

What if I already have an extensive system?

There are many homeowners out there who may have spent thousands of dollars on a professionally installed, custom home security system a few years ago- but want to take advantage of the technological advances in home security and automation systems-without breaking the bank…again. (and in many cases, you may even reduce your monthly monitoring costs)

Link Interactive has you covered.  With their TAKE Super Switch, you can convert up to 8 zones per module(and up to 4 additional modules can be accommodated)  and monitor them individually with the 2GIG Go!Control.  And, in addition to the component you get an hour of tech support as well.

This gives you the best of both worlds…With Link Home Security  you can integrate old world, hard-wired craftsmanship with the latest interactive and home automation features of one of the most technologically advanced systems on the market!

Do I need a permit to install Link Security in my home?

 

 

Is it essential to procure an alarm permit to connect a Link Security system?

Strictly speaking, you don’t need a permit if the system is not professionally monitored. On the other hand, since your Link Home Security systemis going to be remotely watched with the intention of utilizing emergency response services, lots of local municipalities would require a permit.

In most cases, this involves very simple registration in conjunction with your city police or sheriff’s department combined with some sort of moderate service fee. You will likely also be asked to give you the company name, address and phone number of the Link Security and Mountain Alarm , as the monitoring station,because, technically the two organizations are actually different.
