LivSecure is a do-it-yourself security provider (professional installation also available in 26 states). The company offers three plans starting at $34.99 per month. Unlike most DIY providers, LivSecure gives customers up to $1,000 worth of equipment for a $99 upfront fee. Headquartered in Pennsylvania, LivSecure uses Qolsys security equipment and is powered by alarm.com and My Alarm Center.
For a one-time upfront $99 activation fee, customers get up to $1,000 worth of free smart home security equipment. This is unusual, as most DIY providers require customers to spend over $500 on upfront equipment costs. What's even better about this deal is that customers get to keep the equipment after their contract with LivSecure ends. Due to the easy DIY nature of the equipment, moving a LivSecure system is easy and doesn't come with a fee like most professionally-installed solutions. Yes, LivSecure requires customers to enter in a contract, but terms are flexible. LivSecure also allows customers 30 days to take their system on a trial run, during which they can return all equipment for a full refund (less return shipping costs). The company also has free, quick shipping, with most orders arriving in just two days.
LivSecure does require all customers to sign a contract. The company is vague on cancellation terms, stating "reps will work with you." LivSecure only offers a one-year limited warranty on its equipment, which is shorter than most security providers. LivSecure's monthly fee ($34.99/month) is a few dollars higher than other DIY providers; however, when considering the free equipment, you'll probably end up paying less over time. While LivSecure offers most basic security and home automation company, the company does not sell outdoor cameras. For customers who want to secure the outside of their home in addition to the inside, this might be a deal breaker.
