Protect America has provided one of the most affordable DIY home security solutions to over 500,000 families, and has been in business for over 20 years. Something that we really like about Protect America is its free equipment and zero upfront costs to get started. One drawback you might face with Protect America is its 36-month contract; however, due to Protect America’s excellent customer service the average customer stays with Protect America for over eight years.

The Good

  • No Upfront Costs
  • Monthly Fees as Low as $19.99
  • Lifetime Equipment Warranty
  • New Simon XTi Control Panel & Home Automation Options
  • Live and Recorded Video Monitoring
  • 24/7 Landline, Cellular, and Broadband Monitoring
  • Free Camera w/ Purchase of any Package (Cellular or Broadband Only)

Protect America is one of the most affordable home security companies in the industry. While other companies will charge anywhere from $99 to over $400 in upfront costs, Protect America currently charges $0 in upfront fees. Protect America offers five different home security packages ranging from a locked-in rate at an average of $43.99 per month which is significantly cheaper than competing home security companies. Each package comes with a free lifetime warranty, meaning Protect America will ship replacement parts for all defective equipment at no charge for as long as you are a customer.

Despite Protect America’s affordability, the company sacrifices nothing in terms of quality. Protect America now offers the new Simon XTi, a modern, sleek, and innovative control panel which integrates seamlessly with your smartphone. In addition to a wide array of home security features (including motion detectors, night vision cameras, door and window sensors, and more), the company offers a number of home automation solutions to help you control your security system remotely. Protect America’s SMART Connect mobile app controls door locks, lighting, and appliances, arms/disarms your entire security system, and streams or records live footage from up to two of your security cameras simultaneously. Protect America offers flexible monitoring options for nearly every budget. Home security monitoring can be conducted via landline (least expensive), broadband, and cellular communication. Few home security companies provide all three monitoring channels

Protect America comes highly recommended by its customers. Customers who left reviews on our site have been boasting about Protect America’s customer service. They also note that Protect America’s do-it-yourself system, which is shipped right to your door, is very easy to install. Protect America has simplified the self-installation process with 24/7 support and a collection of online video tutorials. Protect America serves customers in all 50 states, while many of its competitors have a much more limited national reach.

The Bad

  • Lengthy 36-Month Contract
  • Cancellation Policy
  • Video Streaming Not Available on Landline Monitoring

One thing that we didn’t like about Protect America is its 36-month contract and its cancellation policy. Other home security companies offer their services with much shorter contracts or no contracts at all. And if it so happens that you cancel Protect America’s service, you will be required to pay 100% of the remaining balance of your contract. Other home security companies only require you to pay a percentage of the remaining balance (some as low as 20%). Paying the full balance can end up costing you hundreds of dollars if you haven’t been on the contract very long.

New customers have 30 days from the date their package was shipped to return their equipment without being bound to the 36-month contract. And while live and recorded video streaming is available on Protect America’s broadband and cellular monitoring options, it is not available with landline monitoring, meaning customers will need to pay extra for this important feature.

Customers don’t like the 36-month contract either and have reported several issues revolving around the contract. Other customers complained that Protect America’s equipment was not functioning properly, specifically sensors triggering false alarms.

The Bottom Line

Based on our research, you likely won’t find a more affordable home security company than Protect America. It is a solid home security company with packages starting at only $19.99 per month and no upfront or installation costs. Protect America’s lifetime equipment warranty is a special feature that few other home security companies can match. But if you are looking to hire a company to professionally install your home security system than Protect America is not for you. Protect America’s 36-month contract and cancellation policy may deter you from purchasing its service, but given the high volume of positive user reviews praising Protect America’s customer service, it’s easy to understand why most of Protect America’s customers renew their contracts more than once. Protect America is a great choice for those looking for the self-install system with both the most equipment and the least amount of upfront costs.

Section 1

Customer may cancel this Agreement by returning the Equipment within fourteen (14) days of the initial shipment date from PAI to Customer. The return package must be postmarked within 14 days of the original shipment date and returned postage paid to Protect America, Inc., 3800 Quick Hill Road, Building 1-100, Austin, Texas 78728. This Agreement will not be cancelled until the returned equipment is received at Protect America, Inc. Customer shall be required to provide proof of delivery if requested. A $79.00 restocking fee, debited from Customer’s account submitted as part of this Agreement, shall be assessed on all returns.

Why it’s important

You have 14 days to cancel the agreement.  The equipment package must be postmarked within 14 days of the original shipment date.  Also, there will be a $79 restocking fee.

Section 5

Assignees / Contractors. PAI shall have the right to assign this Agreement to any other person, firm, corporation or entity without notice to Customer and shall have the further right to subcontract any monitoring service or other services which it may perform. Customer acknowledges this Agreement, and particularly those paragraphs relating to PAI’s maximum liability, third party indemnification and warranty limitations, inure to the benefit of and are applicable to any assignees or subcontractors (including Monitoring Facility and Collection Agency) with the same force and effect as they bind Customer to PAI. Customer may not assign Customer’s rights under this Agreement without PAI’s written consent.

Why it’s important

Protect America can give a contractual agreement to any other corporation or third party without noticing the customer.  If the agreement is given to another entity it still has the same force and effect that it would have with Protect America.

Section 6

Limitation of Liability. CUSTOMER UNDERSTANDS THAT PAI IS NOT AN INSURER OF THE SAFETY OF CUSTOMER OR ANY PROPERTY. CUSTOMER AGREES TO OBTAIN, AT CUSTOMER’S SOLE COST AND EXPENSE, ANY INSURANCE COVERAGE CUSTOMER DESIRES TO HAVE TO INSURE AGAINST PERSONAL INJURY, PROPERTY LOSS OR DAMAGES AT THE PREMISES WHERE THE EQUIPMENT IS LOCATED. PAI SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE, RISK, INJURY, DEATH OR EFFECTS OF ANY HAZARD OR EVENT, PROPERTY LOSS OR DAMAGE DUE DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY TO ANY FAILURE TO DETECT OR AVERT AN OCCURRENCE OF AN EVENT THAT THE SERVICE IS DESIGNED TO DETECT OR AVERT.

Why it’s important

Protect America is not an insurer of property or safety of customer and does not provide any guarantee of such.  It is the home owner’s job to obtain insurance and maintain coverage against personal injury, property loss, and damages. 

Section 9.1

If Customer defaults with respect to payment of Monthly Monitoring Fees more than two (2) times in any calendar year, or monthly monitoring fee becomes sixty (60) days past due, then Customer agrees that PAI may terminate service and the remaining applicable balance of the Agreement will be immediately due and payable. PAI may draft Customer’s account for the entire remaining balance, disconnect monitoring with prior notice or require Customer to pay yearly in advance for services. In addition, Customer agrees PAI will have no liability if disconnection occurs due to a past due balance or otherwise.

Why it’s important

If a customer misses at least two monthly payments and becomes sixty days past due, then Protect America can cancel the agreement and requires customers to pay the remaining monitoring balance.  

Section 9.2

PAI may suspend or cancel this Agreement, without notice and without liability or penalty in the event the Monitoring Facility, the communications facilities connecting Customer’s location to the Monitoring Facility, or other equipment are destroyed by fire, catastrophe or by any other means, or are so substantially damaged that it is impractical to continue service; or in the event that PAI is unable to either secure or retain the connections or privileges necessary for the transmission of signals between Customer’s location and the Monitoring Facility and the law enforcement agency or other emergency contacts for any reason or cause whatsoever. PAI assumes no liability for the interruption of the service due to any cause and PAI will not be required to supply the Service to Customer while interruption of the Service for any cause continues and Customer is not entitled to any refund or credit of any charges for such interruption of service.

Why it’s important

If for some reason the connection to the home security system becomes lost or unable to maintain, Protect American can cancel the agreement without liability or penalty.  They are not responsible for any lost connect or interruption of service due to events out of their hands.

The Good

Protect America (PA) offers a basic home automation package that is ran through the home security control panel.  The home automation equipment adds wireless control to everyday household tasks such as turning lights off and on and controlling various appliances, it can even lock and unlock the front door.  All of this equipment is able to function together through Z-Wave technology, which is the most widely recognized standard for home automation.  Also, the system is a self-install product, meaning the home owner can install the new equipment at their convenience.

After a customer purchases a security system and decides to further their remote access by including home automation they can choose to either purchase the pieces separately (which give the home owner full ownership of the equipment) or lease a set of equipment which costs the home owner zero money down (through this option PA maintains the rights to the equipment).  The choice to buy or lease is a nice option which many home security companies do not provide.  With either route the following options are available:

  • keychain remotes
  • appliance module (for controlling non-PA equipment)
  • indoor siren
  • freeze sensor (for monitoring the temperature of the plumbing system)
  • flood sensor
  • door sensors
  • email and text notifications

The Bad

If you choose to go with the basic home automation package for zero money down this package does not include as much equipment as most home automation packages provided by other companies.  For example, in their “free” offer they only include 1 appliance module, 1 indoor siren, 1 freeze sensor, and 1 flood sensor.  For anything else you must pay extra.  Most home automation packages include at least one video camera and a video monitoring system, however, PA customers must pay an extra $199 for the camera and an extra $10 a month for monitoring.

The Bottom Line

Protect America provides a basic home automation package for nothing down, which is a nice extra feature if you already own a home security system through them.  However, if you want extra features such as door control and video monitoring it costs extra and can add up quickly.  We suggest you discuss package options with a Protect America representative to determine if their home automation system is right for you.

Security System Overview

Protect America began offering the Simon XTi which is a better, more modern control panel than the Simon XT which you can see below. You’ll only be able to take advantage of the Simon XTi with a Silver package and above as well as broadband and cellular monitoring.

Simon Xti

Protect America also offers a wireless and easy-to-install system called the Simon XT. Some of the unique upgrades featured in the Simon XT system include: compact design, LCD display, more wireless zones, and an event history log. One key feature that is important to note is the built in voice dialer. When certain system events occur, like triggered sensors, the alarm will call any phone you choose to alert you with a voice message. Here’s what you get with the Protect America Gold Security Package (free*):

  • 100% wireless system.  Easy to install with no drilling required
  • Simon XT control panel
  • 12 door/window sensors
  • 1 motion detector
  • 3 security stickers
  • 1 security yard sign
  • Owner’s manual
  • Free exclusive interactive monitoring app for smartphones
  • 100% Lifetime warranty on every piece of your system

The Simon XT:

The Simon XT should be placed where it is easily accessible. The Simon XT allows users to call for help (emergency responders), arm/disarm your system, and control the functionality. The Simon XT has the ability to control up to 40 security equipment controls (including sensors and home automation functions). The Simon XT is basically the brain of the Protect America security system, and it allows you to control all features and equipment.

thumbnail

The Simon XT Touchscreen allows you to voice commands and offers a a substitute for when you cannot check the main control panel.

thumbnail-1

Video Surveillance Cameras:

Users will want to place Protect America’s video surveillance cameras in high traffic areas, like by door entries/exists and hallways. Protect America enables users to view the video surveillance through their “Smart Connect App.” Live footage from the camera can be viewed at anytime from anywhere as long as they have WiFi connection. The video is high quality and can be easily accessed.

thumbnail

Mini Pin Pad/Talking Wireless Keypad:

The Mini Pin Pad is not necessary, but it does add a level of security in the event of an emergency. These pin pads allow you to call for help and alert the authorities/responders. These pin pads also allow home owners to alarm and disarm the security system by typing in a personalized code. The pin pad allows for additional convenience and ensure the security system is armed when it needs to be.

thumbnail-2

The talking wireless keypad has the same functions as the mini pin pad, meaning it can arm, disarm, and send emergency signals to the authorities. It allows you to communicate and can mounted on your wall.

thumbnail-1

Sensors:

Protect America offers several different types of sensors. They have the door and window sensors which detect whenever the door or window is opened. The Protect America door and window sensors are wireless micro sensors which means they do not have to be plugged into your wall and are hidden out of the way. It is advised that customers place a sensor on every door and window for optimum security.

thumbnail

Protect America also has a garage door sensor. There can be several thousands of dollars stored in garages, which means it is critically important to protect it. Keep your cars, bikes, tools, and other items stored in your garage safe by installing a garage door sensor. These sensors are mounted on the inside of your garage door.

thumbnail-4

There is also the option to install motion detectors. These motion detectors are easy to install, and they detect both heath and movement within a 25 foot range in a 90 degree arc. They can be installed in the corners of rooms, and it is recommended to put these in high traffic areas in your home.

thumbnail-5

Lastly there is the Glass Break Sensor that is to be mounted in an open space near windows or glass doors that you would like to secure.

thumbnail-6

Protect America offers some of the latest and most advanced technology on the market. Since Protect America allows their customers to customize their home security system to fit their home, it provides a high level of security that ensures your home and family’s safety. For a low monthly monitoring fee, Protect America’s security system will secure your home’s vulnerabilities.

    Tried to cancel service over 2 years prior to actual date that it was cancelled. Now they want another payment … said they are entitled to another month after receipt of cancellation request. I asked to speak to a manager and was told that she was the supervisor …. her deal is we’ll split the difference with you! How about no … how about I haven’t used your service in over 2 years and you don’t deserve another cent from me. Think twice about this company!

    I would not recommend this company to anyone. They are not upfront about the equipment they sell. They also do not like to refund money on items returned even when providing proof of return. The billing coincides with returned items. Their customer service team and customer service managers lie about refunds. I had to file a complaint with the BBB in order to get my refund. They are still incorrectly billing me and again was lied to regarding my refund. I again will be contacting the BBB and my bank. This company lacks integrity. It’s hard to feel secure knowing that a company that lacks integrity is monitoring the safety of your family.

    At first protect America seemed to be a good security system fit for my family. With no up front cost and easy self installation it was convienet. However, when we had our first problem with our sensors going out (after 1 year) we ran into many problems. We had to call multiple times and each time was told a new sensor would be sent to us. Each time they also tried to “troubleshoot” the problem and nothing ever worked even though they said it was fixed. Multiple nights the alarm system would go off during our sleep because the sensor was bad and could not be fixed remotely like they kept saying. After around 5 phone calls we finally talked to someone who knew what they were doing and we were sent two new sensors. However from one of the times it was “fixed” remotely the settings were now not correct still causing issues. It has been an absolute headache and we will be cancelling as soon as our contract is up. I highly recommend choosing a different sercurity system company!

    I moved to an area where I don’t need a security system. Plus, my homeowners comes bundled with a security system anyway. So I don’t need this service anymore. They have refused to cancel my service or even take me off of autopay. I had to report it as a fraudulent charge to my bank. This is not a security company, it is a theft company.

    I have not had any problems with this company though i have been with them for a little less than a year.The issues that i had was with my internet provider. They told me what to do . i did so called them back and i was back on track. The young lady Elisa who assisted me was awesome. She was on the phone with me for over an hour , very pleasant, She asked me to call her back after i spoke with my internet provider which i did . She was with a customer but called me back when she was available and walked me through the whole process of fixing the issue i had with my camera. What an awesome , amazing employee Elisa is. Thank you so much.

    This company has terrible customer service. They took out these service technicians. Thinking it’s cheaper and easier for customers use. Technicians that main knows the system and can find out where the problem lies and resolve them. I had histories of false alarms just 2 months after receiving this system and don’t find this easy for my satisfaction. On top of that, this company after I demanded a contract presented a paper work at lease 6 pages long where they just typed your name. I received no confirmation number if it was suppose to be electronic sign. Or even a hand written signature should be valid.
    I feel that everybody that fell into this scam should file a complained to CONSUMER AFFAIRS or LICENSING of TX.

    This is the worst company ever. Don’t do business with them. System fails. Billing cycle makes bills late before you get them. Customer service os none existent and when you want to cancel the service they will keep coming up with excuses to keep billing you. I am now to the point of having to get an attorney to get them to stop billing me and they still don’t care. COMPANY IS A COMPLETE SCAM DON’T UES!!!!!!

    Numerous problems with trying to test to assure the service was working. We spent hours trying to verify that they were actually getting connection with our system. Their own technician finally said that there was only a 50/50 chance that PA might get an alarm from our system. Of course, there was a $180 upgrade that they tried to sell us that was sure to make the system work – yeah, right!
    When we insisted that we were cancelling the contract after almost 4 years – and we were on a month-to-month contract after the 1st 36 months – then they tried to tell us that we’d need to pay 3 months of the service charge to cancel!! (On a month-to-month contract??? Get serious!)
    They kept sending us email cancellation notices, but the cancellation notice continued to state that we owed extra months – and the cancellation request could NOT be edited to correct their contention or to state anything to clarify the situation.
    Incompetent support, unreliable equipment, very poor customer service, and continued demands for monthly charges that we did not owe… get the picture of why I say they rate a “0” for customer satisfaction?

    I would definitely give this company a negative rating if it was at all possible. I never would have agreed to a 3 year contract if I had realized there was no termination option available whatsoever. After less than a year, I have moved to a residence where I do not need this system and they have no sympathy or concern. They will tell you to have a family member or friend take over the service, but that is not an option. I do not recommend them and hope that everyone looking to get a home security service reads all of the reviews that also mirror my situation. Once you’ve signed, you are stuck for three years, no matter what. In this day and time, I don’t believe anyone signs a contract for something that is service oriented so I would keep that in mind that this is a 3 year commitment with no options for termination!

    yes, very big fine print. try to leave the contract early and they charge outrageous fees. they want to pay off the equipment which is no where near that expensive. and the main panel can be easily re used and should be able to return. but no, they want you to use it and then give you another one for a new contract. do yourself a favor and get one of those self monitoring systems. which is basically what protect america does. get the sensors and a panel, install yourself and gt it to ping your iPhone and get a camera option. that way if anything happens it pings, you see the video and if its something then you call the police. leave out the middle man aka protect america.

    NEVER EVER CONSIDER THIS COMPANY!!! They have defective system and create multiple false alarms. You end up in paying fine for false alarms. Cannot come out of the contract even though they have fault system. only way to come out of contract is by paying 3 years of service upfront. I cant imagine how they are running business. This company will rip off your money and absolutely no customer satisfaction. Some of the 5 star reviews must be fake. Minimum 30 minutes wait time to reach customer service department.

    We have been very dissatisfied and overpaying for Protect America services for over 2years now, because they locked us into a 3year contract (yes,… I said 3). Beware, we thought it was only 2year contract to begin with. We finally completed the 3 years with them and they are refusing to lower our service agreement amount (almost $85 and we don’t have monitored cameras) so we are parting ways. I do have to say that their support team (installation and such)has always been helpful when we needed it, but the other people we have had to deal with have always been difficult. I do not recommend this company. Honestly, half the time I’ve wondered if someone actually broke into our house if it would matter with this company, which is not a good feeling.

    worst service all false information they tell customers 15 days for test but till you receive equipment and you set up system it takes 5 to 10 days. and when i called for cancellation they said 15 days from the contract signed. so you get only about 7 days time to test. Absolutely false statement. I would not recommend to do business with this company.

    I had protect America for 4 years and the system is horrible. The customer service is worse and after I verbally cancelled the account they continued to bill me which I am fighting now. They continually get harassing phone calls and constant emails with no resolution. I have asked them to stop calling and just send to collections but they continue to call and harass me.

    Worst company ever! The equipment is free up front because it’s horrible and they continue to charge you after you cancel! Vivint is a much better company to deal with!!! I strongly recomend them.
