Security Force Inc. is a home security company that caters to residents and small businesses in North Carolina. Their headquarters is based out of Raleigh and they have been in business for about 10 years. The company caters to a wide range of home security needs including burglary and environmental factors. Security Force Inc. is a locally owned and operated company, catering to a small service area. While they seem to have very little feedback on review sites, their prices at a glance seem unreasonably high for what they can do. Let’s take a closer look at what Security Force Inc. has to offer.
Pay More for Less?
At Security Force, you will pay for your equipment upfront. It is a little difficult to understand what your cost will be by looking at the company’s website. However, Best Home Security Companys lists the cost of equipment with a lifetime warranty at $199. Then you will pay an additional monthly feee for professional monitoring. Their professional monitoring starts at $42.99 a month. A bit pricy for a base package.
At Protect America, we do not believe in charging you for your start-up equipment. Instead we offer you one of five different home security packages to choose prom, depending on your budget. Then we provide all your start-up equipment for free! For monitoring in our Copper package starting at $19.99 a month, there is a package for every price point!
Most people choose to have their security system connected to mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. If you choose to have mobile service, you must pay $270.00 up-front to have the cellular component installed. You then pay $42.99 a month for the length of your contract. This allows you to monitor your home from virtually anywhere.
Equipment and Contracts
At Protect America, we can provide you with the same equipment as well as smart phone integration if you choose our cellular or broadband monitoring plans. Our SMART Connect app is easy to use and free with these two options! If you have Z-wave door locks and appliance modules, you can even control your lighting and lock your doors with our app. There’s no additional cost to upgrade your monitoring. The monitoring itself for broadband or cellular will cost you $41.99 with the Copper package at Protect America. That’s a little less expensive than Security Force on a monthly basis, and you’ll save hundreds in start-up costs.
Protect America uses a standard 36 month contract. However, if you sign up with Security Force, you might be locked into a contract for even longer! Their contract time ranges from 36-72 months. That’s twice as long as what Protect America provides! Let’s just say you need to move mid-contract with Security Force. What happens when you move away from their service range?
Local vs. National
With so many choices, equipment and services, deciding on the right home security company can be a tough decision. Our goal is to empower people and make it easy to choose the right decision for their home and family, whether that’s Protect America or not! A common misconception about home security is that going with a local alarm company is better. Many think that since there is a home security company locally, there is a local monitoring facility as well. In reality, when you sign up with a local home security company they install it, and it ends up being monitored by a national monitoring facility.
