Review Last Updated: July 17, 2019

Forward Home Security has a well-trained response staff who work in collaboration with CSG’s monitoring. This increases efficiency in responding to emergencies. Given that the monitoring company is located in the US, disruptions and communication difficulties are reduced to a minimum.

Pros

Forward Home Security (FHS) offers a home automation package that can be purchased separately on a piece-by-piece basis.  For example, after a customer purchases the Smart Home Plus package they have the option to add on a number of other complimentary home automation packages, such as Smart Home Mobile (which allows remote monitoring via cell phone), Smart Home Energy (remote thermostat control), or Smart Home Anywhere (which allows you to control doors and windows remotely).

The best part about FHS top packages is that video monitoring is included in the Smart Home Plus package, which is not common among many other security dealers.  With this package the following equipment is included (and other home automation equipment can be added on for an extra upfront cost):

  • Touch screen Go! Control Panel
  • Home security system
  • Viewable Event History
  • Automatic Email Notifications
  • Real-Time Severe Weather Alerts
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • 2 Indoor Fixed Cameras
  • Remote Video Surveillance
  • 24/7 UL-Licensed Monitoring
  • 36 month monitoring agreement

Cons

While FHS has one of the best video surveillance and monitoring packages on the market, their Smart Home Plus package is missing many of the home automation features that are typically included in a top package offer.  For example, most security dealers that offer a home automation package include thermostat sensors, flood sensors, light and door remote access, and garage door access.  The only features that FHS includes that are common among other home automation packages are email notifications, weather alerts, and video surveillance options.  All other amenities must be bought separately for an extra upfront cost.

Summary

FHS is a quality home security and offers a home automation package that must be bought piece by piece.  Therefore, if you are looking for specific home automation features FHS would be a great choice since you can buy the individual features you are looking for without paying for stuff you do not want.  However, if you are looking for an all inclusive package then FHS might cost a bit more since each part of the home automation system must be bought separately. View Top Rated Companies
