Home Security Systems Consumer Reports: Best Reviews

October 2nd, 2012

Home Security Systems Consumer Reports

Consumer Reports is one of the most respected products review and consumer protection publications on the planet. Every month, Consumer Reports publishes a magazine that reviews products from a number of industries but not home security. Consumer Reports avoids reviews of home security products because the performance of such products often depends on the security service supporting it.

Home Security Systems Reviews

Finding quality home security systems reviews online can be difficult. The most widely available security system reviews can be found on third party review and shopping websites. Consumers should not give too much thought to reviews on these types of websites. Most reviews on shopping and third party sites are generated by angry customers and aren’t necessarily representative of the quality of a given product.

To find quality reviews for home security systems, interested consumers might want to check technology concentrated Internet forums. Users on tech forums discuss a wide range of products that, occasionally, will cover home security. These discussions will focus largely on the actual alarm system rather than the supporting service.

Best Home Security Systems

To find the best home security system, customers will need to balance the specific security needs of their home with a monthly budget. Most home security companies require a 3-year monitoring agreement with every home security system. Some companies, like ADT, charge for equipment and still require an extended monitoring agreement. Protect America offers customers a FREE wireless home security system when they order a monitoring system. Wireless home security systems are also easy to use and can be customized to fit the needs of any home.

Home Security Systems Consumer Reports

Customers looking for reviews of home security companies can find those across the web. The most negative reviews for almost any home security company will be found on third party review sites, like Yelp and Angie’s List. Many companies offering home security systems in Consumer Reportscollect customer testimonials, good and bad, and display them on their own websites. Protect America offers thousands of testimonials, which allows customers to form their own decision based on positive and negative feedback.
