Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • Authorized Alula Dealer
  • Compatible with Home Automation

Authorized Alula Dealer

MDI Security is an authorized dealer of Alula. However, its website provides limited information on the equipment available. If you are interested in looking at security equipment specifications, Alula’s website has detailed information on the company's control panels, security cameras, motion sensors, door/window sensors, and more.

Compatible with Home Automation

As an authorized Alula dealer, MDI Security’s systems are compatible with many home automation solutions. The system integrates with both Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant. Most home automation products, including smart lights, thermostats, and smart door locks can be programmed into the Alula app. This allows you to manage and monitor your entire home from one app. 


The Bad

  • Undisclosed Pricing and Contract Information
  • Limited Installation and Monitoring Information

Undisclosed Pricing and Contract Information

MDI Security’s website does not list any information about pricing and contracts. This is not uncommon in the home security industry. However, we encourage you to talk to sales representatives about specific contract obligations. 

The industry is trending away from long-term contracts. However, it is not uncommon for security companies to have 36–60 month service contracts. A major complaint among home security customers is feeling they were deceived into signing long-term contracts they can’t get out of. Be sure to read any contracts thoroughly before signing. Don’t hesitate to ask for clarification on anything that is unclear.

Limited Installation and Monitoring Information

MDI Security provides limited information on its installation process. A video on its website emphasizes the ease of installation, but does not clarify if the system is professionally installed or if DIY options are available. 

Professional installation usually comes with an additional fee. However, it is common for security companies to run special promotions for free installation. You will need to speak with a MDI Security representative to discuss what installation options are available and any fees that may be associated with them.

MDI Security advertises 24/7 monitoring. However, its website does not provide any information of professional or self-monitoring options. Professional monitoring usually comes with additional monthly fees, ranging anywhere from $15–$40.  

Be aware that many home security companies partner with another company to provide monitoring services. We recommend discussing monitoring services with your sales representative in detail. Make sure you know who to contact for assistance in different scenarios (e.g. triggered alarms, false alarms, etc.).


The Bottom Line

As an authorized dealer of Alula, MDI Security provides quality home security and home automation products and services. However, its website provides very limited information. Customers interested in purchasing a security system from MDI Security will have to speak directly to a sales representative to get pricing, contract information, equipment capabilities, etc.

We do not currently have any customer reviews for MDI Security. We recommend comparing its products and services with other top-rated home security companies before making a final purchasing decision.
