The Best Home Security CompanyHow to choose.


While we have selected Frontpoint Security as our #1 pick…your priorities in selecting a security company may differ.  Any of our Top Alarm Companies are excellent alternatives.  And while there are a number of factors to consider, it really boils down to…


Monitoring Services

All companies that we review offer reliable security systems with around the clock UL Listed monitoring services that meet the highest industry standards.  In addition to standard intrusion monitoring, your system can be monitored for police, fire and emergency situations, flooding, and carbon monoxide, depending on the equipment which you include in your protection package.

Premium systems also may include cellular or internet monitoring options which enable you to utilize apps to monitor and control your system and any home automation features you have included in your system-from a computer, tablet or mobile device.


Equipment and Security Devices

Most security systems include a basic starter package which will include your control panel and keypad, siren, emergency panic buttons, 2-3 door window contacts, a motion detector, and perhaps a personal key fob or two.  Our top-ranked alarm companies have a wide variety of optional equipment available to meet your individual needs. Available devices typically include- glass break detectors, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, flood and low-temperature sensors, and surveillance cameras.

You will likely have to pay extra for many of these devices, although some companies allow you to incorporate these into your monitoring package.


Customer Support

In the event of an emergency, the response time with your monitoring service is critical. Top alarm companies all offer UL Listed monitoring services to respond to threats and emergencies detected by your system.  The best companies also offer customer support through e-mail, phone, and live chat services for non-emergency service.

While some companies require installation professionals to install and activate your system, some of our top-rated companies can monitor systems that you have purchased and installed yourself.  Other important considerations are whether or not you can take the system with you when you move and the length of the equipment warranty.
