The Good

  • Discount for Referrals
  • System Relocation
  • Pet Immune Detection
  • Easy Installation
  • Home Automation Features
  • Security Product Transparency

Discount for Referrals

If you send a referral to Smart Shield Systems that converts into a customer (the referral must sign a contract with the company), you get two months of free monitoring. With referrals being cumulative, it is not a one-time offer; the security company gives you two months of free monitoring for each referral you send. This is a great way to get a discount on Smart Shield Systems’ security services.

System Relocation

Smart Shield Systems will help you relocate your home security system if you move, as long as your new home is still in the California service area. It’s important to note the security company requests that you give a 30-day notice before you move and you have to pay a small service fee for transportation and reinstallation.

Pet Immune Detection

Smart Shield Systems has motion detection that monitors activity and is immune to the movement of pets. This guarantees there won’t be false alarms if your pet walks by a sensor.

Easy Installation

All image sensors are wireless and battery operated. This enables you to install the sensors anywhere you would like in your home without difficulty.

Home Automation Features

Smart Shield Systems has home automation features for homeowners who would like to easily connect and control their home technology. All home automation features are controlled through the Alarm.com app. Here is a list of some of the offered home automation options:

  • Cameras with live video that enable text and email alerts for security updates
  • Remote light access that allows you to turn your home lights on and off
  • Electronic door locks you can lock and unlock remotely and a notification if someone tries to unlock the door when you’re not home.
  • Smart thermostat to regulate your home’s temperature

Security Product Transparency

Smart Shield Systems has a list of all available security products on its website. This includes a picture of the item, a description, and a file link to download the manual instructions for the product. Providing transparency about the security products allows homeowners to see exactly what they will be getting when they purchase Smart Shield Systems’ security services.

The Bad

  • Limited States Serviced
  • Monitoring Limitations

Limited States Serviced

Smart Shield Systems only services the state of California, making it impossible to work with the home security company if you live in another state. Many other home security companies offer service to a variety of states.

Monitoring Limitations

Cellular is the only form of monitoring available through Smart Shield Systems. The security provider does not offer landline and wireless monitoring. This may be a limitation for homeowners who are looking for landline and wireless monitoring services.

The Bottom Line

Smart Shield Systems is a home security provider based in San Diego. The security company has a variety of offerings for homeowners including easy installation, a discount on monitoring with referrals, pet immune detection, home automation features, and even system relocation in case of a move. The drawbacks are landline and wireless monitoring services are not available and if you live outside of the California area, you cannot use Smart Shield Systems as your security provider.

Mike Lake Elsinore, CA

I had Smart Shield Systems install 6 cameras at my home in Lake Elsinore. I asked for two in the front of my house, 2 on the side of my house at my gates, and 2 at the back of my home. The technicians installed 2 at the front of my home and 4 at the back of my home. This cost me 3,800+ dollars. The original quote was only 3000. They then told me it would be an additional 700 dollars to move 2 of the cameras at the back of my house over to the gates on the side of my house where I had asked them to be. My advice for anyone looking to use this company is make sure everything you want is in writing, and detailed. Ron the owner told me on the phone that his technicians would put the cameras exactly where I wanted them, but this never happened.

I was looking for an alternative to the high priced Security providers who could convert my existing security system into a functioning system. Smart Shield Systems was the first company to respond promptly to my email and since then it has been a pleasant journey with them. I have installed 6 cameras in my house and they all work great. These guys are true professional. Thanks

Unbelievable. I am super happy with this company & products. From the first phone call to the last it was a great journey for us. The alarm system works great with all the smart home equipment, everything is controlled from my app and you can do it from any smart device and from everywhere, so convenient & easy to use. The camera system is awesome, we are happy we upgraded to the small starlight PTZ cameras, I like the way you can control the cameras from the app and the picture is phenomenal. Great work, great customer service, phenomenal products.

I have used Smart Shield Systems for over 10 years and have been very pleased with the service. Recently we had our front & back door replaced and needed to have the new ones rewired for the alarm to work. I called Smart Shield and they came in just 3 hours and rewired both the doors and now my alarm system is working perfectly fine. Thanks guys.
