Protect America in the Community

Why get a home security system?

You can’t always be there to protect your home, and thieves are counting on it. Most burglaries occur during the daytime when no one is home, and the average burglary costs over $2,000 in stolen property and damage. Home security is a way to stay connected to your house and take comfort in knowing it’s safe no matter where you are.

Protecting your family

Your family is what makes a house a home. They are your most precious asset, and home security is an excellent way to protect them. Our security systems accept multiple programmable codes, including those that alert your smartphone when used – perfect for children.

Safeguarding your business

The flexibility of wireless technology allows our systems to secure any structure, including businesses. Protect America security cameras integrate seamlessly, record to cloud storage in event of alarm and are viewable live on a smartphone at any time. Austin businesses are the foundation of our community, and they deserve protection too.

Peace of mind

Knowing your home is defended from burglary 24/7 is priceless, but when you add fire protection, medial alert technology, and the ease of home automation – you’ve created real peace of mind.
