Review Last Updated: January 11, 2017

Crime Prevention Security Systems is a locally-owned company based out of Florida. This company has been in business for over 40 years serving residents of Orlando, Gainesville, Ocala and surrounding areas. This company offers home security essentials such as monthly monitoring, video surveillance and fire protection. Crime Prevention Security Systems has won many awards and was ranked in the “Top 100 Security System Companies in the Nation” from SDM Magazine.

Security System Overview

This company has many different security system packages depending on your unique situation. The Premium Package is the most popular system set-up and is a great option for homes that do not have any previously installed systems. Crime Prevention Security Systems uses either the GE Concord 4 or the Simon XT keypad. There are options for wired or wireless systems depending on preference.

The Premium Package includes:

  • 3 entry door and window sensors
  • Motion detectors
  • Wireless control panel
  • Internal siren
  • Bonus device: smoke detector, glass-break detector, carbon monoxide detector, or pack of 5 window/door sensors

This system costs $99 for activation, installation and equipment. If you choose to use cellular phone service to operate your system, it is $35.95 per month for 36 months. If the Premium Package doesn’t cover your security needs, there are many additional options which can be applied to your package.

Additional options include:

  • Home Automation
  • Security Light Modules
  • Active and Passive Smoke Detectors
  • Excessive Heat Alarms
  • Health and Wellness Alerts
  • Video Surveillance
  • Remote Key Fobs
  • Glass Break Sensors
  • Infrared Cameras
  • Carbon Monoxide Detectors

The Good

There are many factors which indicate that Crime Prevention Security Systems is among the best options for security in the Orlando/Gainesville area. One factor is the company’s affordable pricing. This company offers wireless and cellular system capabilities at a price that rivals its close competitors. If you move a lot, Crime Prevention Security Systems can move service to your new home so you don’t have to terminate service if you transfer within the areas they service. This service is offered free of charge.

The Bad

The Premium system package is very basic and includes the bare essentials of home security. Most customers are likely to choose additional options for their system package, which will raise the cost of service. However, keep in mind that this company guarantees a fixed rate so your monthly bill won’t change unexpectedly. We recommend waiting until Crime Prevention Security Systems is offering special package deals so you can lock-in a discounted price. Ask a company representative for more information.

The Bottom Line

Crime Prevention Security Systems is a well-established company that offers attentive and professional customer service. This company offers many different options so you can customize your system package to suit your preferences using the latest technology from GE. This company provides service only in the Gainesville, Ocala, and Orlando, Florida areas, so you can continue your contract agreement within those regions. You are guaranteed a fixed service rate so you’ll never receive any unexpected charges. Crime Prevention Security Systems is an ideal choice for anyone living in central Florida.

    Hi my name is Bob Bieniek and you can publish my name. I purchased my system approximately two years ago and my sales rep Steve B asked me to give a review. I was reluctant to spend money on A security system because my small-town atmosphere. But then we had some break-ins in the Gainesville area when someone broken into about 17 businesses and only stole small amounts of money. But because I have a real estate office I was concerned about my customers personal information. There’s not much to steal out of the real estate office. But I have to tell you that it was one of the best investment I ever made for peace of mind. I know with my sales people come and go because it shows on my phone each time. If I leave and forget to set the alarm I can do so by my phone. And please understand I am not a very techy person and the system is so easy to operate. When I have had any kind of service questions the company has been great and answers my questions quickly and professionally. Only one time did we accidentally set the alarm off my office was called and it required my security pass name so they didn’t send out the National Guard. I know I can call an 800 number but I generally just call my sales rep Steve B with my questions and he is very well-versed in the system and has always answered what I needed. I would highly recommend this system to anyone

    Had this service for the initial 3 years, plus 1 year free, plus another year monitored service.
    No problems as the house was constructed and included the security system which was
    activated after taking possession.
