Home Security Evolves – Renters Now Arming Their Homes With Affordable Wireless Systems


Protect America, Inc. is leading the charge to equip renters with the same security expertise it has used to safeguard hundreds of thousands of homes across the United States and Canada. 


Austin, Texas – August 30, 2013 – The advent of wireless technology has made necessities like alarm systems accessible to anyone with an electrical outlet. Home security think-tank Protect America, Inc. is leading the charge to equip renters with the same security expertise it has used to safeguard hundreds of thousands of homes across the United States and Canada.

The saturation of technology into everyday life has inspired the company to take it even further, equipping apartments, townhomes and rental houses with alarm bundles that are as easy to use as an iPod. "Think about it," said Arlin Owsley, VP of Business Development. "You can check email in your car, start brewing coffee before you get out of bed and even trade stock while waiting in line at a coffee shop. Wireless home security is just as effortless. Have an outlet in your wall? That's all you need to protect your entire apartment from burglary."

The company has surprised consumers with kits selling for $19.99 a month, including door and window sensors, a motion detector and even a free smartphone app called SMART Connect. The app allows iPhone and Android users to arm and disarm their systems remotely, check their home's status and receive text alerts in the event of an alarm.

Now more than ever, renters and homeowners alike are turning to simple and powerful wireless technology to defend their homes against burglary. Protect America offers affordable security solutions customizable to every home.
