GuardMe provides custom security systems and has serviced over 80,000 commercial and residential systems since 1997. Although the company is based in New Jersey, it services half of the United States. It provides 24/7 professional monitoring and is active on social media. However, the company is not very transparent on its site as far as the associated costs or equipment available.
Although headquartered in New Jersey, GuardMe services 25 out of the 50 states in the USA. This isn't a negative aspect until you experience a move out of state to an area not covered by GuardMe. It is recommended to pay specific attention to the states it does provide services for prior to signing a contractual agreement. Keep in mind, GuardMe does not have a cancellation policy, so you will be responsible for the remaining balance if you decide to leave your contract early. One downside to GuardMe is that it does not list equipment or package pricing online. Because it offers custom security systems, it is understandable why it cannot list pricing options as it may vary quite a bit. With that said, it is difficult as a consumer to understand what price point you are looking at when shopping around with various security companies. A free security analysis is necessary for you to learn what pricing and promotions are available to you in your area. GuardMe provides product manuals for 2Gig, GE, and Honeywell equipment on its website. These security product brands are used by many security companies, but it removes the ability for GuardMe to control the entire experience for you as a customer as it is reliant on third-party system updates. This is really only problematic if you experience a technical issue or equipment malfunction with your system that is dependent on the third party for a fix.
