Protect America has done it again. Our home security system products and plans have earned top billing with major consumer review outlets such as PC Mag, and In the latest surveys for home security systems on the market in 2018, we consistently ranked in the top 10. A close look at our innovative products, flexible monitoring plans and customer-obsessed service will give you a glimpse of our recipe for success in this competitive industry. At Protect America, we keep our hand on the pulse of customers as well as the latest tech trends that we can incorporate into our equipment. Here are just a few instances where Protect America has stayed ahead of the curve by implementing some of the top home security system trends of 2018 as published by Consumer Reports.

Do-It-Yourself System Set Up

Advancements in technology have birthed a whole host of robust home security camera and motion sensor equipment. A couple of side benefits of these new products are their relative ease of installation and use compared to the previous generation of home security products. This trend is particularly attractive to tech-savvy Millennials who are always on the lookout for more cost-effective home security solutions that can be customized to fit their unique home configurations.  While standard DIY home security systems include components that are installed and also monitored by the consumer, Protect America offers services that add value to a broader range of home security users. We know that all of our customers are not technicians, so we provide guided installation help over the phone for our plug-and-play home security systems. Most systems are installed within an hour. More importantly, Protect America delivers 24-hour a day monitoring for its systems which detect, record and warn users about security breaches. With our monitored systems, you can decide whether to alert law enforcement or simply cancel the alarm. That’s strong protection in an uncertain world.

Wireless Home Security Equipment

The proliferation of wireless home security equipment is one of the main reasons why the demand for DIY home security systems is on the rise. The new wireless systems often come with a compact base station, a keypad command center and a series of small sensors and cameras. This kind of set up eliminates the typical bunch of cables that are associated with video equipment as well as the need to have strangers to enter your home to route those wires. Many of today’s consumers desire products that can scale to their short and long-term home security needs. A wireless system is great for those cost-conscious consumers who have downsized to a smaller home or those who want a secure living environment in an apartment or condo. Protect America combines the versatility of two-way voice capable, wireless home security equipment with a crackerjack monitoring service.

Integrated Smart Home Systems

Home security is serious business, but it does have a fun side too. It seems that consumers can’t get enough of mastering the latest home tech products that make life comfortable and more convenient. That’s why it’s no surprise that a major trend in home security is merging security equipment with smart home electronics. With so many emerging products, it’s hard to keep up with all of the smart home systems reviews.

According to Alex Hawkinson, CEO of Samsung SmartThings, affordable smart devices put home security within reach of nearly everyone.

Common smart home tools that interface with our security systems include automated:

  • Door locks
  • Thermostats
  • Lighting

Our integrated smart home security systems can be activated and controlled through your smartphone or Alexa, Amazon’s voice assistant.

Comprehensive Whole-Home Coverage

While there will always be the occasional, lighthearted story about the bumbling burglar who gets caught trying to enter or exit a home through a narrow chimney because he saw it done on T.V., most home invasions are anything but funny. Home security is about protecting your assets and more importantly the lives of your loved ones. That is why more people opt for all-inclusive home security systems that cover their properties inside and out. Protect America’s response to this demand is a high-definition security system that includes cameras and motion sensors that are designed for indoor and outdoor use. Our customers aren’t the only ones who love our monitored cameras and cloud-storage recording capabilities. Insurance companies in many areas have granted home insurance discounts to owners who have monitored, comprehensive home security systems like those that are available at Protect America.
