EMC provides consumers with a great deal of flexibility in service. Its most basic alarm monitoring service starts at just $16.95 per month.
It also has the potential to save clients' money in the long-run due to its month-to-month plan. Clients are not locked into a contract and are free to cancel services at any time.
Another area of flexibility in EMC's services is the option to self-install the security system. This allows consumers the ability to save on installation costs and install their system at their own convenience. Both DIY and professional installation options apply to the following home security equipment:
Connect+ Fundamentals: $179
Ideal for apartment and townhomes, the Fundamentals packages comes with the following security features (DIY installation only):
Connect+ Touchpad: $199
EMC Security's best-selling package, with professional installation available at checkout:
Connect+ Build Your Own: Starts at $99
A customized home security system that can be catered to your home's specific needs:
EMC offers clients the option (for $5 extra) to control and monitor their system remotely using an app powered by Alarm.com. The app allows consumers to arm and disarms their alarm system as well as control any home automation features included in their EMC package.
All EMC systems are monitored 24/7 by professionals certified through the Central System Alarm Association (CSAA) and have achieved Five Diamond certification status. This essentially means they have passed rigorous standards enforced by CSAA to ensure quality service delivery. EMC has two different monitoring stations that both monitor each EMC security system. This ensures EMC clients will have direct communication with EMC professionals in the event an alarm is triggered.
EMC Security customers have the option to integrate their existing system with the latest smart home devices to provide whole-home security and control. Through EMC Security's available products, homeowners can control the following:
All home automation tools can be managed remotely via the mobile app.
The downside to EMC's service is primarily its limited range of service delivery when it comes to location. EMC exclusively services residents of Georgia, which excludes a large portion of potential clients.
Another potential drawback to using EMC is the high upfront equipment costs. EMC offers equipment from a wide variety of manufacturers all of which will be purchased at the cost of the consumer. The previous audit performed by our review team found equipment costs could range anywhere from $385 to more than $2,000. That is a substantial fluctuation in potential upfront costs and something consumers will need to consider when using EMC services.
The EMC website lacks a great deal of transparency in the different package options it offers as well as specific equipment consumers can purchase as a part of their package. This can be incredibly frustrating to consumers who want to understand what EMC can provide before committing to services.
