Select Security, powered by Alarm.com, is a home security system and home automation company, that has been serving home and business owners across 14 states since its founding in 2003. The home security company provides integrated systems that include security, fire alarm, access control, video camera surveillance, life safety, and more. In 2014, Select Security was named the "Installer of the Year" by Security, Sales & Integration magazine, and also made the INC 5,000 list for fastest growing companies.
Although customers will need to pay for their home security and smart home equipment upfront, they'll be happy to know that Select Security does not charge any installation fees for any of the system components. Considering the company's expert team of home security technicians conduct a thorough walkthrough and professional installation, the lack of installation fees is a great deal!
The company provides a 90-day service and installation guarantee, meaning if the security system does not meet customer standard's within the first three months, they can get their money back.
Select Security provides a full suite of home security and automation equipment to help keep homes and businesses safe:
Select Security owns four UL-listed, CSAA Five Diamond Certified professionally monitoring centers. For a monthly fee of $42.99, these stations provide responsive, redundant support, meaning if one station goes down, the others will pick up the slack.
Per verified Select Security reviews on Best Company, Select Security attaches a hefty, five-year contract to its security systems. Although this long contract term is common to the home security industry, it's considered to be on the high end. Leading home security providers sign customers up for as little as one to three years — some even provide month-to-month terms. Something else customers need to be aware of is contracts with Select Security will auto-renew after five years.
Although the company does not apply installation fees to its professionally installed systems, neither does it appear to provide a DIY installation option for customers interested in assembling and building their home security system themselves.
