Wireless home security system reviews and ratings for home security systems are a little complicated. When researching ratings for home security companies, it’s important to distinguish between ratings for home security monitoring service and reviews for home security systems. Many reviews for home security systems will actually focus on the service provided by a particular home security company.

Another important distinction when looking for the best rated home security systems is the difference between wired and wireless home security systems. Wired home alarm systems are typically offered by large home security companies that require installation from an expensive technician. Self-installed wireless home alarm systems are available for considerably less money. Some companies, like Protect America, even provide equipment for free when customers sign up for a monitoring solution.
