Pros

Mobile App

The mobile access is extremely convenient. There is a reliable and fast wireless connection. You can keep control of your home by simply checking your mobile device. You can receive practical notifications by text or email if something triggers sensors.

Save Money & Energy

When you purchase the smart thermostat from Alliance Security, you’ll use about 10% less energy than with a normal thermostat. The average cost savings is $10-15 per customer.

Cons

Limited Availability

Alliance Security is only available in the following 33 states: AL, AR, AZ, CA, CT, DE, FL, GA, IL, IA, LA, MD, MA, MI, MS, MT, NC, NV, NJ, NM, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, UT, VA, WA, WY.

Professional Installation Only

There is no DIY installation option through Alliance security and installation costs increase for those who want more advanced home automation packages. This will increase the overall upfront costs for customers.

Alliance Security Complaints

We have over 100 Alliance Security reviews on our site and most of them are negative. Their customers rate them 1 out of 10. Below is a summary of complaints we’ve seen about Alliance Security in the past couple of years:

  • Difficult to cancel
  • Poor customer service
  • Unavailable service technicians
  • Not receiving a copy of the contract they signed
  • Undisclosed information about accounts

Our Recommendation

Even with a number of packages to choose from, there are still installation and transparency issues customers should be concerned about. Additionally, the large marjority of negative reviews raise some red flags. For those reasons, we recommend looking into other companies like Protect America and Frontpoint.


About Alliance Security

Alliance Security offers many different options so you can have the security system that works best for you and your situation. They offer seven different packages. With any package you purchase, there is a firefighter smoke monitoring device that comes with it. There is a “special alert” sensor in every package (with no increase in your monitoring rate).

    This security system is by far the worst system I have ever used/ the guy told us during purchase that we were able to cancel at any time and now the company says otherwise even though cancelling was an option when I called. Such a joke. The app doesn’t work 90% of the time and we’ve had multiple occasions where the alarm just went off because we couldn’t turn it off using our phones and had to come in. I will make sure to share my disappointment with anyone who asks. Alliance Security System is the biggest joke!!!

    Horrible. We have had our system for a month. It started going iff saying the back garage door was breached. It wasn’t. Then it would shut off and do it again in 10 min or so . This went on for over sn hour. I tried calling customer serv was forwarded to a vm twice. Never recd a call back and strangely with it going on snd off by itself for that length of time the police were never called. That tells me no one is monitoring our system

    Buyer Beware!! This system was for my Mother’s house an 81 year old woman. We had our security system installed last night and we’re cancelling it today. There are a number of reasons:

    1. The person who came to install our system was the most unprofessional installer I’ve seen from any type of service company. He looked like he’d just rolled out of bed, grabbed whatever shirt he could find and came to our house. He got here at 6:00 and didn’t leave until about 8:30. He proceeded to tell us how he had be shot and stabbed and that’s why he did this job. He did however explain how the keypad system worked. We were VERY uncomfortable. When the company called for a QA call the next day I let them know.

    2. The installation was poor. I could have bought the parts on Amazon and done it myself. They put in a Ring Doorbell, the installer didn’t even get it straight. It also looks terrible on the door. It hangs off about an inch and a half and could easily be pulled off. They supposedly put glass breakage detectors on but we don’t know what windows they are on. We haven’t found them yet.

    3. We did not get a written contract. We signed something but the installer or the company didn’t explain it or leave us a copy. They setup the direct draw from the bank each month and we’re not sure the amount.

    4. The installer gave us the passwords, and of course he has all of them. He never showed us how to change them.

    5. When I called the company to cancel I was sent to an anonymous voicemail system with no explanation or promise to return my call. I see from other reviews that this is a problem. We have stopped payment on the account to make sure we don’t get our account drained.

    All in all I would NEVER use this company for anything. The people who have given positive reviews I find very suspect. This was a HUGE mistake. Go with Protect America, we did.

    Terrible service. One of my panels stopped working. It just says that a code is required to pair both panels together. I have called Alliance Security and they didn’t want to give me the code, instead, they want to charge me $250 for a new panel! Also, I am moving in one month, so I have told them that I will not renew my contract with them because I’m not satisfied with there service. They told me if I’m not renewing my contract with them it will cost me $400 because my contract with them is not done yet. I have never seen a company not able to give good customer service satisfaction! I should have gone with ADT like I first thought. Stay away from Alliance Security

    Stay away from this company. I realized after only one day that I had made a mistake. So the first business day I called and cancelled the service. In my state you have a three day period to cancel a contract. And I stopped payments they could have charged. That was 30.00 but to get rid of this service I didn’t regret the fee. PLEASE do not get this service from Alliance Security.

    Be very aware when you apply for this service that Alliance Security only installs your service they are not responsible for your monitoring or actual account. I just received a letter in the mail from Brinks home security billing me for service i didnt even know I had. On top of all of that its super easy to apply and get the service but to cancell no one can help and they just have you running around to cancell. Today I called Alliance they forwarded me to Brinks and Brinks is forwarding me to Laywer T to cancell my service. This is the biggest joke ever stick to comcast security more expensive but very professional!

    Although we’re on National and State Do Not Call list this company robocalls 2 to 4 times a week. I called to find out who was making the illegal robocalls and was put on with the most high pressure salesperson I’ve ever encountered. I decided I’d let them waste a trip out here as punishment for their illegal advertising. Big mistake. They have shown up at the house 3 times unannounced. I’ll be greeting them with a shotgun on their next visit; that’s my home security. Read their review’s and avoid this company like the plague.

    I had a salesman name Peter T., phoned me talking about the security system & being polite calling me by name & was getting other information from me which I had NO ideal he was going to do a credit check on me. Which I NEVER authorized him to do so. I’m very very 😠 angry with Peter T., the salesman; this wasn’t fair to me. So, I’m wanting others to PLEASE be aware of this kind of stuff when people s are talking to you on the phone.

    This is the worst company ever. Do not purchase from them. The sales dept but on a good talk game. Customer service is poor. They don’t have a technician in my area so they contacted another company. I had a service called appt for this morning. However, I had to call Alliance back to check on the location of technician. The technician had emerency but I was not notified. This is the 2nd time this happened to me. They don’t stand by their products.

    My mother bought this service and moved from her condo 10 months later. The company continues to take money directly from her account and they claim she has a contract that cannot be broken. This is a contract she never saw prior to installation, and since asking to cancel the service, they sent her a document that is not even signed. I’m calling AARP tomorrow on these scammers. As a side note, while she had the service, she made repeated calls and was given the run around every time.

    Received a call soliciting I listen to sell pitch and was all for it was going to have it installed today $43.99 a month.

    In less than 10 minutes they call me back and told me I need it $99 up front told me my credit was not good enough

    We bought a house in June bought a brand new Dodge Ram in October but my credit is that good enough to cover $44 a month

    The credit check was never mentioned in the original phone call they just ran it

    Way I look at it they could keep their system I’ll have another one installed by the end of the week

    Worst service, worst company ever. Lies out of the gate. Told the billing amount was $50/mo all inclusive for yrs they have been auto-drafting MORE THAN I APPROVED, my bank will not help. Equipment stopped working, they have never returned a single call. They never resolve a single issue. I’ve got broke down useless equipment, they refuse to come service. They also stood in my house and lied to me, staying i wouldn’t need to pay for a city permit for this system, flat out lie. Now the city of Vancouver comes to take their lb of flesh every year. They have never supplied me with the “contract”, I’ve asked on several occasions for a copy by mail. They state we’d owe 3k to cancel said contract. If anyone else is suing, I’d gladly like to be a part of your lawsuit. I’m thinking class action. Any takers?

    Alliance Security company is an absolute ripoff. They provide terrible customer service and technical support is even worse. Don’t bother leaving messages because they were not to return your calls. Doing the holidays they used the Thanksgiving holiday ends in excuse as to why no service technicians were available to service my outside camera. However they do not hesitate to withdraw the monthly fees ea however they do not hesitate to withdraw the monthly fees early on the due datE. Be on the lookout for contract. And don’tt believe them when they state that their support team have been trying to contact to you on several occasions. Be on the lookout for contract time. I was just informed I’m on the contract to 2023 Mind you I just got service this year. I will be filing a legal complaint against this fraudulent company.
