Security System Overview

Blue Ridge Security uses high-grade products from Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) in their home security systems. DMP products are well known for their high quality, speed of installation, and ease of use. DMP products are not available direct-to-consumer and are exclusively sold by authorized dealers. Blue Ridge Security home security systems are not prepackaged and are customized to each homeowner.

Blue Ridge Security also offers home automation. Blue Ridge TotalControl enables homeowners to control their home’s thermostat, lights, turn appliances on/off, and lock/unlock doors, all from their mobile device. Blue Ridge provides an app for smartphones to make it even easier to control your home and security system, as well as view video from up to six wireless cameras in and around your home. There is also a texting option which you can use to control these features by simply sending a text command from your phone.

The Good

Blue Ridge Security offers free security evaluations to prospective customers. Their products are provided by well-known companies, such as Bosch, Honeywell, Telguard, and DMP.

Blue Ridge’s BlueVue24 video surveillance is an advanced wireless system which includes motion sensors and a digital camera with infrared capabilities for nighttime. The system works preventively, sending a 10 second video notifying the police immediately if it suspects any abnormal activity.

The Bad

The majority of the reviews on Blue Ridge are positive; however, the website does not allow prospective customers to see the prices of packages; instead, you must contact them for information or schedule a free security evaluation.

The Bottom Line

Overall, Blue Ridge Security offers up-to-date technology and a wide range of options for customized security needs. Their app for smartphones makes it easy to complete multiple actions within seconds, and their texting option allows you to control your system easily even if you don’t own a smartphone. They have a great track record. When choosing a system to keep your home and loved ones safe, we highly recommend choosing Blue Ridge Security for a personalized experience.

    We had Blue Ridge Security install a system when we built our house in 2001. We had an upgrade to satellite a few years ago. The system works as it should; customer service is excellent and response time is extremely fast. (Accidentally set off the alarm? Better call in NOW because they are on it!)
