Monitronics Home Security Systems

November 27th, 2012

Monitronics is one of the three largest home security companies in the United States. The company offers a wide range of home security services, like fire protection, video surveillance, and more. Monitronics customers can be expected to pay a substantial amount of money upfront to cover installation, activation, and equipment.

Monitronics Home Security: An Overview

Based in Dallas, Texas, Monitronics was founded in 1994 and quickly became the nation’s fastest growing home security provider. Today, the company services approximately 700,000 customers in all 50 states. Monitronics is a traditional home security provider in the sense that they require professional installation and only offer hardwired alarm systems. To get a Monitronics system, customers will have to give their information to Monitronics and set up a time a security rep from their company can do an evaluation of their home.

If you go to their website, it displays their information, what they have to offer, and tends to look somewhat outdated. Monitronics offers various security for businesses, seniors, single parent homes, and residences across the country. Just like any other security company, but nothing really stands out.

Monitronics Home Security Review

Monitronics offers a wide variety of services but the simple truth is that they are not really ahead of times when it comes to the home security industry. The basic model of home security offers no room for innovation and their old school practices can be noticed. Their interactive options are not so interactive and seem to to be a lifetime behind other competitors like ADT, Protect America, and a few others. Although Monitronics has its flaws, it is still top security provider due to their good customer service and simple security  products.
