While some security providers charge you upfront for their home security systems, Alarm Zone provides one at no extra cost when you sign up for service. The system is basic but offers essential protection from fire, burglary and freezing temperatures. Beyond its standard package, Alarm Zone provides a few other customization options and additional security devices that you can add to your system.
Much like other home security systems on our lineup, Alarm Zone offers systems that can connect to the company's monitoring station via a landline, cellular or broadband connection. The type of connection you want will determine the exact security system you get. Regardless of the connection type, all of Alarm Zone’s systems are manufactured by GE and come with a motion detector and entry sensors. The company’s home alarm systems are self-install only.
You can tailor your home surveillance system with supplementary devices, including freeze sensors, security cameras and medical pendants. Surprisingly, the company does not offer heat sensors or carbon monoxide detectors. While some homeowners may not consider these devices crucial, they would enhance the overall security of Alarm Zone’s security systems.
Our biggest complaint with Alarm Zone is in regards to its help and support options – or lack thereof. Aside from general security tips and a toll-free telephone number, Alarm Zone doesn’t provide any useful support resources on its website. Most of the other home security systems we reviewed that are self-installed are supplemented with comprehensive documentation; this makes the installation process as seamless and straightforward as possible for homeowners. At the very least, Alarm Zone should post set up instructions for each of the security devices on its site.
Extensive support documentation is crucial when it comes to self-installed home security systems. Unfortunately, Alarm Zone doesn’t provide much information on its website. However, the company’s security systems are decent and can effectively protect you and your family from environmental threats.
