Installing a home security system is great way to keep your home and family safe, especially considering that homes without security systems have a threefold greater chance of burglary. A security system can also lower your home insurance rate – many companies offer discounts.
A team of researchers at Reviews.com put together a comprehensive review of the best home security systems currently on the market.
In their research, they first ensured all options had the same four fundamental levels of protection: intrusion, environmental, surveillance, and life safety. Then, they called companies to learn more about their services. And finally, they installed systems of the top contenders in their own homes and evaluated them for equipment functionality, customer support, ease of use, and whether the company met the expectations they promised.
Their guide includes their picks for the most popular provider (ADT), best customer support (Frontpoint), and best for home automation (Vivint), as well as two runner-ups (SimpliSafe & GetSafe). Their review also covers the best home security providers in various cities and states around the country – including New Jersey. You can take a look the full resource here.
