Pros

The lifetime warranty that is offered to all customers is a unique service that is not found among most security companies.  Another positive is that if for some reason you need to cancel your service they only require 75% repayment of the remaining balance; usually, home security dealers require full repayment. Doyle Security is professionally installed and there is no down payment.

Cons

The most obvious problem with Doyle's packages is that they require a 3-year contract even though you buy the equipment outright at the beginning of service.  Usually, when a company requests that customers buy the equipment at installation they either allow them to pay month-to-month or sign them up for only one year.  This is due to the fact that their costs have been covered and they do not need to keep customers on the hook to recover any money invested.  Doyle, however, locks customers in for 3 years which is unusual based on their upfront costs

Our Recommendation

If you live in the upper New York region, are in need of home security, and have about a thousand dollars to invest upfront then Doyle is one of the best companies in the region to consider.  However, if you do not live in the area or are hoping to get a system for little money down then you should look elsewhere.
