The Good

  • Equipment Options
  • Home Automation Options
  • Free Quote
  • Professional Monitoring Options
  • No Long-Term Contracts

Equipment Options

Alamo Smart Home has a wide range of security equipment including the following:

  • Security panel
  • Doorbell camera
  • Outdoor camera
  • Indoor and motion viewer camera
  • Motion detector
  • Door/window sensor
  • Glass break sensor

Alamo Smart Home’s basic security package does not include security cameras. However, they can be added for an additional fee. You can also add smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, flood detectors, and medical pendants to your system for added security against environmental threats and medical emergencies.

Alamo Smart Home’s equipment is powered by Alarm.com. You can monitor and manage your security system and devices from the Alarm.com mobile app. The app also connects and manages any home automation devices you decide to include in your smart home system.

Home Automation Options

Alamo Smart Home also has home automation products that can be added to your security system. These products include the following:

  • Smart door lock
  • Thermostat
  • Smart garage
  • Smart home lighting

You can manage these products from the same mobile app as your security system.

Free Quote

Alamo Smart Home’s website does not list any pricing information. However, the company offers a free quote so you can determine if its services fit within your budget. The website has a form you can submit to request a free quote or you can contact the company directly.

Professional Monitoring Options

Alamo Smart Home offers 24/7 professional monitoring starting at $19.99 per month. If you choose to opt out of this service, you will be responsible for monitoring your system and alerting authorities if the system is set off. 

No Long-Term Contracts

Alamo Smart Home does not have long-term contracts. Many security companies require 36 – 60 month contracts that are difficult to get out of. Alamo Smart Home's month-to-month contract options allow their customers much more flexibility than other competitors. However, the company's website does not provide much detail on the obligations of its contract. You will need to contact the company directly for more details.

The Bad

  • Undisclosed Pricing and Contract Information

Undisclosed Pricing  Information

The Alamo Smart Home website does not provide any information on pricing. The company does offer professional monitoring services, but it does not clarify equipment or installation costs.  We encourage you to talk to a representative to clarify pricing  requirements before making a final purchasing decision.

The Bottom Line

Alamo Smart Home is an appealing choice for customers in Texas. It provides a wide range of security equipment and home automation products. Most customers should be able to create a home security and automation system that fits their needs and budget. The company’s free quote service is an excellent way to help ensure its solutions will match your expectations. 

However, the lack of pricing and contract information on the Alamo Smart Home website makes it difficult for customers to compare its services with other companies. It is not uncommon for security companies not to disclose pricing and contract information. We encourage customers to have thorough conversations with the sales representative to ensure they have a clear understanding of what the products and services will cost and any contractual obligations that may exist. 

As we do not have many Alamo Smart Home reviews, we suggest comparing its products and services to our top-rated security companies to make sure it's the right choice for you.

Rene Cardona KS

Danny was very knowledgeable about the product and service. He was also very helpful finding us a plan that is right for us. Romeo was also very helpful. He explained everything in great detail, was veryrespectful of our home, and ensured he did not leave until we were comfortable with his service. I recommend Alamo to the highest degree possible.

aaron lanier Schertz, TX

company was prompt with the sales guy and with the installation service. they worked well around my busy work schedule to do the install. they accomplished it all in a short amount of time and the quality of the equipment is great. there was a signal issue with the doorbell camera at first but the manager Matt came back the next day and fixed it free of service charge and have had no problems since. the company app is also easy to use and has tons of automation features if you desire. the monthly fees are way more affordable than ADT,BRINKS, ETC. and they offer a service warranty for only 7ish bucks a month that could potentially save you hundreds or even thousands depending on your system size. this is a great company and i would definitely recommend it to a friend especially since it gets you and your friend a free six months...

Lou G, was awesome !! He walked me through everything i needed to know and showed me each device to its full potential, he answered all my questions quickly and professionally. He had such great attitude, patience and all smiles! He did not leave my house until everything was perfect and i understood all that he did and how everything worked, considering my husband was working and wanted to make sure I also knew everything I needed to know! I will definitely recommend him and his business. Over all happy with my service and experience with him!

We switched over from Vivint because we were tired of our rate being so high and our system never working. Looked around to find a local company that was more honest and found Alamo. So happy we did, the cameras and locks are awesome!

Media Team Austin, TX

I switched over to Alamo Smart Home after using a big national company for years. I wish I had known about them sooner. They have incredible LOCAL customer service here in central Texas, and the pricing is about half what i was paying before. On top of that, I got all the latest equipment (cameras, smart home, etc) and didn't even have to sign a contract. I highly recommend Alamo!

I am so happy with my experience!!! I switched alarm companies to Alamo and I am so glad I did . I had three techs ( Matt, Romeo, and Tyler) out here helping me with camera placement and what equipment was best for my house. There was no sales tactics just honest communication. I would recommend Alamo Smart Home anyday!

This company is amazing and an absolute joy to work with! I needed a good alarm company after dealing with a lot of headaches with an out of state source. I gave up and found Alamo and so so glad I did! Cameras are up and covering my whole house - I can see EVERYTHING while I am away. We are thrilled!

I have used various wireless security devices in and around my home and wanted to know how to professionally protect it. The advice and information that I received from Alamo Smart Home was amazing and all my questions and doubts were clearly answered...no bias or forced purchase pressure....they let me understand and take my decisions. Great customer service!

Claudio Costa San Antonio, TX

Good price with no long term obligation - pretty sure only local company in San Antonio offering that. Not all items I contracted were available during install - I got a rain check for a secondary panel. Also, my house was pre-wired - no sensors had any problems. Post install of the new system, some sensors do not work any longer.
