Security Systems of America has been privately owned since 1972 and provides custom security solutions for residential and commercial properties. While they are experienced in the industry, they are a small company that charges higher prices for limited equipment.


Security Systems of America serves a regional area and focuses on cellular monitoring. Cellular monitoring is the most expensive option, which is not what every family needs. While cellular monitoring is by far the safest and most reliable type of monitoring, it also doesn’t always work with every home. For example, if you live out in the country with little to no cell phone service – the chances that your home security system will monitor your home well with cellular monitoring is very slim. For this reason, Protect America offers 3 types of monitoring for every home.

Security Systems of America focuses on cellular-based systems and provides a basic package that uses GE Concord equipment. The initial costs are $199 for installation and activation and anywhere from $29.95 to $49.95/month for 36 months which includes 24/hr monitoring. With this package customers receive the following equipment:

  • 1 main panel
  • 1 key fob
  • 1 motion sensor
  • 8 door/window sensors
  • 1 Siren

At Protect America, you can get monitoring for as low as $19.99 a month. Additionally, Protect America promotes self-installation. Self-installation = $0 installation fees. You don’t have to worry about taking time off work to meet a technician at your home for a lengthy installation. Instead, a technician will guide you through a DIY install of your home security equipment – for free! Upon choosing Protect America, your customized package and easy-to-install equipment will be shipped to you… again, free of cost!


Customers should be aware that if you look online Security Systems of America has an online special that requires $99 upfront instead of $ 199. This deal can only be achieved if you order a system through the website. However, note that at Protect America, we provide free start-up equipment with zero installation fees! We’re so confident that our current Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum Package promotions are the best price available online for wireless home security systems, we’re willing to put money on it to back our claim. We promise that if you find a better deal for less, we’ll match the price with our Low Price Guarantee tool!

Service Range

Security Systems of America ironically only serves a small portion of America, unlike Protect America. We serve the whole country – including Hawaii, Alaska and Canada! Security Systems of America is a smaller company that might lack some of the amenities that a national company like Protect America might offer.  For example, no middle-of-the-night technicians, no free battery replacements, and you might not be able to move your system to a new house if it is out of their primary service area. Protect America will send you an EasyMove Kit if you ever need to relocate. It’s as easy as that!
