The Positives

  • Ackerman has been around for over four decades, making them one of the oldest home security companies in the United States.
  • Ackerman offers a large swath of products which means customers don’t have to pick from several security vendors to protect the whole home or business.
  • They have a fairly inexpensive base rate of just $19.95, which includes basic burglary, fire and medical monitoring. 
  • They claim to have a guaranteed response time, which no other company has.
  • They don’t charge people with equipment from other companies for a switch over, as long as the equipment is compatible.
  • Has both internet and telephone based services. This is great news for customers that still have their land lines.

The Negatives

  • The biggest negative is that they are very vague about their contract details, only claiming that they don’t have any long term contract commitments. This could be spelled out better in their information packets, but they keep potential customers in the dark until well into the negotiating phase for the service.
  • Guaranteed response time sounds great on paper, but the details of that guarantee are also not specified in their informational materials.
  • They are an East Coast company, which means they only offer services in a limited area.

Final Verdict

Ackerman provides an affordable service that is pretty standard for the industry. They are much cheaper than the other national brands like ADT or Brinks. Although they don’t have all of the bells and whistles other companies might offer, they are a good value for the most basic of home or business protection.  They have been in the business for a long time and don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.

Since their footprint is very small, the value diminishes when a customer moves out of the areas they serve. And since the area is very sporadic, with just a single southern state (Georgia), and a smidgen of New England, this can be a tough company to choose overall.
