Vivint Canada Review

Jul 08

  Vivint is a nationwide company that offers home security services to Canadian households at an affordable price. They have good deals but none of them are as appealing as Frontpoint Security’s deals. I do however, like Vivint because they have really good home automation systems that can easily get connected to your alarm system. This is one thing that Vivint does very well. Vivint Canada Pros Apart from the home automation systems and reasonably priced security services from this company, I’d have to say Vivint also does a fantastic job with handling customer service issues. I tested this out by calling them and pretended to be an angry customer. To my surprise…I was greeted by a happy customer service rep who was more than happy to assist me with my fake problem. You might also want to know that Vivint offers great deals to new customers from time to time. You can view their current deals right here. Vivint Canada Cons Like ADT Canada, Vivint requires new customers to have a professional installer visit your house. This can be a pain in the ass because installers can sometimes do silly things while in your home. The fact that you may have to pay for the services provided by the installer is also a buzz kill. It’s probably the reason why so many people are going with Frontpoint Security instead, because Frontpoint’s equipment doesn’t need an installer at all. Conclusion After all’s been said and done, I’d say Vivint is good choice for those interested in combining your alarm system with a home automation system. If I had to choose between Vivint Canada and ADT, I would definitely go with Vivint because they have better equipment. But if you’re looking for a quality home security system at the best possible price, I would go with Frontpoint Security because they offer the best...

What to Look For When Buying a Home Alarm System in Canada

What to Look For When Buying a Home Alarm System in Canada

Jun 27

As you may already know, I’ve been involved in the Canadian home security industry for a long time and I’ve seen so many unsuspecting customers make mistakes. So in an attempt to help you avoid the same fate, I decided to write some tips about what to look for when buying a home security system in Canada. Here’s a list of the most important questions and answers to help you make the right decision on your purchase. Do I Need a Home Security System For My Property? Well, I need to start off by saying…it all depends on your situation. Everyone has different living situations so what works for you might not be the answer for someone else. There are however, some common themes that most people encounter. People without an alarm system installed in their house usually don’t have it because they feel their neighborhood is safe so nobody is going to break into their home, or they choose not to get a system because of financial restraints. In either case, they are leaving their home venerable. Intruders know when a house has a home security system in it and they generally hesitate to break into those homes because it’s too risky for them. So, in my opinion…I would say buying a home alarm system is a good investment if you want to protect your loved ones and your property. What’s The Home Alarm System Installation Cost? When you buy alarm systems from popular home security companies like ADT and Vivint Canada, you need to be prepared to deal with a professional installer. These companies sometimes charge you for this service so make sure to ask them about the cost beforehand. If you want to avoid having to deal with expensive installers, I would suggest looking into Frontpoint Security Canada. This company offers an easy to use ‘Do It Yourself’ solution that anyone with half a brain can install within 20 minutes or less. They are the only company that I know of offering this service to Canadians. I like them because they save people money by never charging them for installation fees. Do I Need a Monitored Home Security System or Not? The simple answer to this question is why wouldn’t you want to get a monitored alarm system if it helps to keep your home secure? Think about it…if an intruder was to enter your home...

ADT Canada Review

ADT is known for being the biggest home security service provider in Canada, but being the biggest doesn’t always mean being the best. For some people this may be the case simply because they want to have a huge company as their service provider. If this important for you, then I’d have to say ADT could be the right company for you. However, if you are like me…a price sensitive individual that is always looking for the best deal possible, I would suggest looking into Frontpoint Security because they offer better products at an affordable price. But, what’s the deal with ADT Canada you wonder? ADT Canada Pros ADT is a nationwide brand with dealers all across Canada that are willing to help you get set up in heart beat. This is a good thing because you won’t have to wait long to get a security system set up in your home. If you’re wondering about the quality of ADT’s customer service reps, I’m glad to tell you these guys know what they are doing. They seem to be very knowledgeable about their products and they are quick to respond to any questions you may have. This can be very useful if you run into a problem with your alarm system. ADT Canada Cons I find ADT prices to be little higher than most of their competitors, and me being the value shopper that I am…I’m naturally turned off by this. If you don’t believe that ADT is expensive, I challenge you to call them and ask about their Pulse system. When you do, I bet you will not like their prices either. Also in addition to that, ADT Canada insists on signing you to a three year contract. The last bad thing about ADT is you have to wait for a professional installer to come to your house when buy a system. This can be a little frustrating because it forces you to stick around while they install it since you can’t possibly install the system on your own. Conclusion ADT is only worth looking into if you desperately need to have a big name behind you. If this is the most important thing for you, then I’d have say ADT could be the right choice for you. However, if you’re looking for a reliable home security deal that won’t cost you an arm and leg….Frontpoint Security Canada...

I’m often shocked when I hear people say they don’t need to look at any of the best burglar alarm systems for homes because their residence if safe, since they live in a good neighborhood. If I could only get a dollar for every time I’ve heard that…I would be a very rich man because nothing can be further from the truth. If you don’t have a good home security company watching out for you, it’s almost inevitable that you will get robbed sooner or later. The funny thing is intruders are now scoping out houses in nice neighborhoods, just like they do in less affluent neighborhoods because they know that homes without monitored alarms are easy targets. Think about it from a burglar’s perspective for a second to get some insight into how they think: If you were going to break into someone’s home…would you prefer to break into a property with an alarm system? I know I personally wouldn’t because it would increase the chances of me getting caught when I accidentally trigger the alarm. Any intruder with common sense would think twice about invading a protected home because it greatly increases their risk. In addition to that, many smart home owners make sure they get monitored home security systems installed in their home so that once a burglar invades…they police are quickly notified. No intruder wants to be in this situation, no matter how bold they are. Important Tip When buying burger alarm systems for home use, you must be advised that some systems do not come with monitoring.
