Motivated by the difference a split second can make in the event of an emergency or break-in, LiveWatch founder Chris Johnson decided to take a new approach to home security and automation. As a result, the company offers simple but efficient self-install security systems that act quickly and get customers the help they need in a crisis. At only 12 months, LiveWatch’s contracts are short and can be canceled at any time with no early termination fees. While LiveWatch’s upfront costs are higher than industry average, customers can return their equipment within 365 days for a full refund.

$34.95 Per Month Monitoring
Starting at just $34.95per month, LiveWatch Security’s monitoring fee is pretty affordable, especially compared to many other top companies in the industry.
Risk-Free, Cancel Anytime Policy
LiveWatch only requires its customers to sign into a 12-month contract, which is short compared to the industry average of 36 months. Once the one-year contract is complete, LiveWatch allows its customers to switch to a month-to-month plan. All contracts come with a guarantee that customers can return their equipment within 365 days for a full refund. Contracts can also be cancelled at anytime without incurring additional fees or charges.
No Early Termination Fees
LiveWatch customers are free to cancel their service at any time with no early termination fees, although you may have to pay for your equipment. Many home security companies require their customers to pay the remaining balance of their contract, which sometimes adds up to hundreds of dollars.
If you need more or less equipment than what’s offered in a standard package (see below), it’s easy to create a customized equipment setup for your home with LiveWatch.
- High upfront costs
- $19.95 activation fee
- No professional installation available
High Upfront Costs
LiveWatch’s upfront costs are decently high. Regardless of which package is chosen, customers will be required to pay $99 upfront. Any additional equipment components that customers may need to purchase range from $29 to $78 each.
$19.95 Activation Fee
In addition to upfront equipment costs, LiveWatch requires its customers to pay a $19.95 activation fee.
No Professional Installation Available
LiveWatch Security does not offer professional installations, which means that the customer is responsible to install their home security system on their own. Although these systems are not difficult to install, some customers may still prefer to have a trained professional handle the installation.
