High Price, No Discounts

For customers that don't have around $1000 ready for a new system, it might be difficult to get an account with America Alarms.

Since they do not offer promotional packages that include "free" or discounted systems customers need to be ready to purchase the system in full.

This could be a potential barrier for many who want home security but don't have the capital.

Our Recommendation

If you live in New England and are in need of a home security system American Alarm & Communications is a viable option.

They are locally owned and operated and focus all their attention on fulfilling the needs of their customers in the area. Keep in mind that you will have to make a large investment upfront.
