Reputation and Credibility

 

Launched in 2015 by industry veteran, Ira Beer, SkyCover  is poised to create some serious noise on the DIY (Do It Yourself)home security scene. With more than 25 years’ experience in high level finance, operations and  management in the  home security industry, Mr. Beer founded SkyCover with a simple formula for success- provide premium quality, DIY name brand security solutions-at competitive rates…without requiring long term contracts. Based in Newport Beach, CA –SkyCover has the  executive leadership that is necessary to make this company a perennial Top 5 candidate and already enjoys an  A+ BBB rating.

 

Monitoring

 

SkyCover Security monitoring services are unique in that the customer has an option to either go month to month- with no long term contract …or  take advantage of generous equipment subsidies and lock in the lowest  rates with an industry standard 3 year monitoring agreement. Their UL Listed, Five Diamond Certified monitoring station provides 24/7 protection against intrusion, medical and wellness supervision, fire and environmental hazards. SkyCover offers a full range of monitoring options- all of which include  fully integrated cellular communication-starting at just $29.99. This eliminates the possibility of defeating the system by disabling cable or landlines. In addition, all of their monitoring plans include remote mobile access and control with their own SMARTLink mobile application and their SmashProof technology which will notify the monitoring station even if the system is destroyed.
