You Don't Have to be a Homeowner to Install Home Security

Whether you are a homeowner or a tenant, you want to keep your home safe and secure. As a tenant, you may think that your options for installing home security in your rented property are limited, but this is increasingly not the case. Game-changing home security packages offered by companies such as SimpliSafe, FrontPoint and Protect America are perfect solutions for people living in rented homes. Let's take a look at some of the benefits these products offer to tenants:

No Installation Fees

You can install the easy-to-use wireless equipment offered by SimpliSafe and Protect America with no need to pay for professional installation. You will need to buy the wireless transmitters and sensors, which means there is an upfront cost, but the lack of an installation fee and low subscription costs offered by SimpliSafe keep the overall cost of home security affordable for tenants.


One of the concerns that many tenants have about installing home security is that they don't want to spend a lot of money on a system that they will have to leave behind when they move house. Many landlords also do not allow their tenants to modify the property in any way. Wireless home security systems are perfect in this situation, as they can be easily uninstalled and transported with you to your new home. If you're with SimpliSafe or FrontPoint, you can simply notify the monitoring company that you are moving to a new address to continue enjoying protection in your new home. Protection1 will even give you $150 to upgrade your system when you move to a new home.

No Ties

Gone are the days when signing up for a home security monitoring service meant being locked into a 12 or 24-month contract. A new generation of service providers is allowing renters to pay for each month of service as they go. If you need to cancel your monitoring package, you can do so easily. SimpliSafe in particular is determined to go against the tradition of home security companies tying customers into lengthy contracts by offering a monitoring service that is both easy to set up and easy to cancel at short notice, with no hidden termination fees and a 60-day money-back guarantee if you're not satisfied.

Low Costs

You might expect to pay more for the privilege of not being tied down, but you'd be wrong. SimpliSafe's $14.99 per month plan is astonishingly cheap when compared to some of the big players in the home security market, and it's not at the expense of quality; SimpliSafe reviews speak of the excellent customer service provided by this low-cost home security company. Other inexpensive home security options for renters include Protect America, which offers plans starting at $19.99 per month.

Feel at Home in Your Rented Property

It has taken a long time, but the home security market has evolved to meet the needs of renters with companies such as FrontPoint, SimpliSafe and Protection1 offering no-ties home security that moves when you do. Just because you're renting there is no reason why you should not feel safe and secure in your home. Now you can protect your belongings and your family with a home security system that meets your needs.
