Home Security Monitoring

Best Home Security Monitoring Systems

There are several forms of home security monitoring that are available today. The three main types of monitoring are landline, broadband and cellular. Cellular monitoring is recommended as it is a 100% wireless technology. Having a cellular-based home security system can boost your security because there are no wires for an intruder to cut as there are with landline and broadband-based systems. The top three rated home security system companies on SECURITYPLANETTM offer their customers cellular monitoring services along with wireless home security systems from brand name equipment manufacturers.

Home Security System Cost

Home security and home automation services are more affordable now than ever before. For around a $1 a day you can have a home security company monitor your home for intrusion, fire, and dangerous levels of carbon monoxide 24/7. Not to mention that most insurance companies will offer up to a 20% discount to homeowners who have a home security system with active 24/7 monitoring services. The basic home security monitoring plans range from $20 to $30 per month. These plans will provide basic monitoring services and most carries who offer several monitoring packages will offer landline monitoring at this level. The next step up in the $40 to $49 price range you can get mobile access features and cellular monitoring. Most people opt for the mid-grade plan as it provides the most value.

Home Security Customer Service

Home Security Customer Service

At SECURITYPLANETTM we heavily weigh a home security company’s customer service record. There are a few aspects involved when investigating a company’s customer service record. The first item is to look at the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and see if the company is accredited. The BBB will also provide ratings for companies on a scale of A+ to F. Stay away from the low ratings. It is quite similar to highschool, if you get a D or lower, you’re failing. The BBB also tracks the number of customer complaints in the past 3 years and 12 months. This alone doesn’t give you the entire picture because some companies are a lot larger than others so the number of resolved complaints might be higher but the number of complaints to customer ratio might be a lot better. We look at all of these aspect plus a few more when rating companies on customer service.

Home Security System Safety & Reliability

All of the home security system companies ranked on SECURITYPLANETTM are highly rated when it comes to safety and reliability. There are a few aspects that we look at regarding this category. First is the quality of the home security equipment. Is it brand named equipment and has it been thoroughly tested are questions we ask. What is the average response time to dispatch the police or fire department are questions you should ask the home security company you are considering. Each home security system company’s response time might vary slightly but they all will have an accredited central monitoring station that is staffed 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Home Automation

Home Security and Home Automation

Home security and home automation now go hand in hand. The same control panel that is used to secure your home can also be used to control the environment of your home including temperature, lighting and turning small appliances on and off. This adds another layer of convenience to a home security customer’s lifestyle. Forget to turn the iron off? No problem, just remotely shut off the power outlet from your iPhone while on your way to work. We do however recommend waiting until you get to the next stop sign before using your phone.

Home Security Mobile Access

Remote features from the iPhone, iPad and Android devices are the far most popular features of home security systems today. They are the favorite features of consumers because there is an app for almost everything and home security is no exception. Customers have the ability to remotely arm and disarm their home security system from the mobile device as well as configure their home security system to send family member text message notifications when certain events occur in the home like the kids arrive home from school or the backyard fence gate was just opened. Additionally, customers who take advantage of the home automation features can remote control a homes environment or stream video from a wireless home security system camera strategically placed inside or outside of the home.
