Review Last Updated: January 14, 2017

Advent Security Corporation has been providing high quality burglar alarms, fire alarms, and security systems throughout Bucks County, Montgomery County, Delaware County, Chester County, and Philadelphia for more than 30-years.

Security System Overview

For new customers Advent Security offers a variety of package options that use both hardwire and wireless systems. Installation costs range from $500 to $1000. Packages include:

  • 1 control panel
  • 3 door monitors
  • 1 motion sensor
  • 1 siren
  • 1 key fob
  • Sign & stickers
  • 24/hr monitoring
  • 1/yr warranty

The Good

Advent Security Corp. have been recognized as the Best Security Company in Bucks County and Montgomery County by the Daily Intelligencer in Doylestown for five years in a row.  They are also recognized as one of the top 100 Alarm Companies in the United States by Security Dealer Magazine. They are a locally-owned and operated company with more than 7,000 customers.

It is important to note that if you sign a deal with Advent Security and you don’t want a three year contract that they are willing to work with you.  According to their sales reps, they are willing and able to negotiate upfront prices in exchange for a smaller or longer contract, which is a policy that not many security dealers offer.

The Bad

One downside to Advent’s services is a common problem among many security dealers, which is that they only offer a one-year warranty for all parts and labor. This means that new customers will be under contract to continue to receive monitoring for several years while they have uninsured equipment.

The Bottom Line

If you live in Eastern Pennsylvania and are in the market for a home security system from a family-owned local company then Advent Security Corp. is a great choice. They have over 30-years experience taking care of families, homes, and businesses in the area and put customer satisfaction first.

    The company is terrific. Polite, friendly staff and technicians. Reasonable and competitive rates for monitoring. We’ve been customers for 10+ yrs. and had one equipment problem which may have been my fault after moving storage boxes in the attic. Their response was 45 mins. to the home, and one hour to repair. Final costs -0- ! I had it covered with maintenance plan. Well worth it to have the security and peace of mind. This testimony is from one in law enforcement, so we see all kinds of systems and services.
