Top Consumer Reviews (also known as TopConsumerReviews.com) is a web-based consumer reviews publication that analyzes and scores a broad range of products and services, like computers and home security companies. The company is based in the Midwest and provides a newsletter to subscribers rather than a magazine or physical publication, which is the typical model for consumer review organizations.

Top Consumer Reviews Home Security System Reviews
Protect America is the top-rated home security company reviewed by Top Consumer Reviews. For the past 5 years, Protect America has received a perfect, 5-star rating. Other home security companies that ranked lower than Protect America include ADT, FrontPoint Security, and Guardian Protection Services.
ADT subsidiary Broadview Home Security only received 2.5 stars. According to Top Consumer Reviews experts, Broadview (now a part of ADT) suffered from higher costs and a difficult installation process. The lowest ranked home security service graded by Top Consumer Reviews was Alarm.com, which failed to offer transparent information about its product while offering inconsistent prices to customers.
Due to the nature of the home security industry, Top Consumer Reviews focuses on home security services rather than on home security systems. Most home security companies offer many of the same home security system models, making monitoring and customer service more relevant to consumer interests.
