Protection 1 was included in the Forbes list of trustworthy companies. They have been in business for 25 years and now offer the one of the best wireless security options on the market.

Security System Overview

Protection 1 released a new DIY system that uses 2GIG home security equipment. Protection 1 offers two packages customers can choose from, which include the basic and interactive packages. Both systems include:

  • 2GIG control panel
  • 3 door/window sensors
  • 1 pet friendly motion detector
  • 1 keychain remote
  • 1 yard sign
  • 3 window decals

The interactive home security system offers additional features like home automation connectivity, energy management connectivity, and video monitoring connectivity (all sold separately). The interactive system is a great choice for those who don’t have landlines and need a cellular connection.

DIY System

Protection 1 burst into the DIY market with a bang, offering packages with $0 of up-front fees and $0 in equipment costs. In addition, monitoring starts at $24.99 for landlines and goes up to $41.99 for cellular connections. Customers must sign a 36-month agreement and have 14-days from the date that equipment was shipped to terminate the agreement (there will be a $79 re-stocking fee). Protection 1 also offers their DIY system to renters, since the system is completely portable and moves with the customer. The agreement for renters is 60 months (42 months in California).

Professionally Installed System

Protection 1 uses the very latest 2GIG equipment in their home security system packages. The system is user-friendly with features that make it easy to manage and operate. The system is user-friendly with features that make it easy to manage and operate. The Protection 1 installation process is straightforward and does not overwhelm your home. The 2GIG is also a wireless system with all of the most popular home automation features.

We recommend the Protection 1 Digital Home Security package. Here’s what you’ll get:

  • 1 wireless, touchscreen control panel
  • 3 window/door sensors
  • 1 pet friendly image motion sensor
  • 1 keychain remote
  • Interactive Services featuring web and mobile control
  • Text and email notifications

All Protection 1 packages include:

  • Up to 20% off homeowners insurance
  • $1000 deductible protection
  • Professional installation and technical support

The Good

Protection 1 offers completely wireless solutions with remote control supported by a smart system that is powered by Alarm.com. They have several apps available and are compatible with iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Windows, and Amazon Kindle fire products.  With a Protection 1 security system, you can arm or disarm your system, lock and unlock doors, watch your pets and property, and control your lighting and thermostat from anywhere. They also guarantee 24-hour monitoring and fast response times in the event of an emergency. Protection 1 offer customized solutions to every home after evaluating their needs so you can also get your own personal solutions when you need them. In terms of customer service, they offer live chat and voice communication with real people rather than having animated systems guide a customer.

Protection 1 benefits and features include:

  • System activation from anywhere
  • Remote video access
  • Receive smart alerts
  • Control door locks

Protection 1 has become a leader in the home security industry. Their services stand out and here is why BHSC experts recommend their services:

  • DIY option – Customers can save on high installation costs and install the equipment on their own. With the help of the Protection 1 customer service team, users can customize their system to fit their home’s needs.
  • “Smart” system – Protection 1 customers can access and view their home’s activities from anywhere and there are also additional “smart” features associated with the equipment.
  • Inexpensive – Protection 1 monitoring costs are low compared to the industry. Not only will customers save on installation costs, but they will also save on low monthly monitoring costs as well.

The Bad

Protection 1’s main problem is they require their customers to pay full-term for contracts even after cancellation. Customers do have 14 days after signing the agreement to cancel the contract, but they will still be charged a $79 re-stocking fee. Going along these same lines, some customers have also claimed that Protection 1 did not want them to terminate their contract. This is a big problem considering customers should have the right to decide when to start or end contracts. Another major problem is their costs may increase without warning.

The Bottom Line

Protection 1 is quickly becoming a trusted household name when it comes to home security and protection. If you are looking for the safest security measures for your home, then Protection 1 is where you should go. They have proved beyond reasonable doubt that they can deliver up-to-date security solutions. They’ve got an industry-leading reputation and technology to back it up as well.

The Good

Protection 1 provides a wide variety of home automation security options that includes some of the most advanced technology currently available. For their home automation packages, there are essentially four types of systems that are offered: 1) Digital Home Security, 2) Digital & Energy, 3) Digital & Video, and 4) Digital & Energy & Video. All of these packages include the same equipment with the exception of video cameras and a touch screen thermostat, which are only available together with the top package. For example, in their top home automation package you get the following:

  • 24/7 monitoring Digital wireless security system
  • Color touch screen keypad
  • Two-way voice
  • Extended Service Plan with Tech Tracker (warranty plan)
  • Advanced Protection Logic WiFi Compatible
  • eSecure Web & Mobile Control
  • 5-day weather forecast
  • Text & email notifications
  • Web Alarm & Event History
  • Video (includes one indoor IP video camera with wireless access points)
  • Energy & Automation (includes one Z-Wave touch screen thermostat. With additional equipment, you can remotely lock/unlock doors control lighting and appliances)

One of their best monitoring options is the ability for homeowners to control their system remotely from their smart phone using eSecure. With just a touch of the button, you can arm your system for when you are home or away. By using their customizable settings the system can adjust according to when you are home, at work for the day, or on a week vacation.

The Bad

Protection 1’s top home automation package is lacking in some of the home monitoring tools that are offered in many other companies’ basic packages. For example, most home automation packages include door lock and lighting technology which allows the home owner to control these aspects of the home from their phone or tablet; however, Protection 1 requires these items to be bought separately. Another feature that is common with other companies is the inclusion of a second security camera for external doors. But with Protection 1, any extra video surveillance must be bought separately, and according to one of their sales reps, could bring the total upfront costs up to around $1000.

The Bottom Line

Protection 1 home automation systems provide an affordable way to not only secure your home and family, but allows you to remotely connect and manage all the functions of the home. While their package might cost a bit more upfront than some other home security companies, their monthly rate is a bit cheaper than average (about $10-$20 cheaper) which more than makes up for the cost differences. If you are in the market for a system that does more than security we suggest discussing home automation options with a Protection 1 representative.

    We have had good service from Protection One during our 13 years with them. However, we recently decided to go with another company for personal reasons. When we called to notify them, it was very uncomfortable. The woman made unfavorable comments about our new carrier, acted like we didn’t know what we were doing, and, in general, was very unprofessional. Her behavior alone would prevent us from ever returning to Protection One.

    My company was with Protection 1 for 6 years. Not one time did anyone ever come out to do service. When we started having problems with the alarm, still no one came out. Then when we had enough and switched services, we received two more bills AFTER THAT DATE. Do not waste your time or your trust with these people. Especially avoid Melissa, Eric, and Rick in the customer service department.

    P.S. When Protection 1 sent their technician to pick up the equipment that was here (the only time they came here since the installation), the P1 Tech complemented us on the new panel we had had installed by their competition.

    Had Protection 1 in previous home and worked fine. Moved to a new home in2014 and went with protection 1 again. We have had constant problems with different spots going on and off line over and over. Put new batteries in and had service come out. They put an antennae on the one sensor to help, but still going on and off line. When I went into the menu it says the receptions are “weak”. I will be calling service out again.

    Protection 1 acquired my previous security company. They contacted me in December and told them I did not want to renew. In February, I received a bill for 3 months service. Apparently, they were still trying to charge me but did not get the correct card number in conversion. Told me a long story about how to properly cancel service, which required verification in writing, and that I had to pay anyway or else. However, when I agreed to pay the bill, they instantly agreed to cancel the service without all of the verification that I was told was required. Sounded a lot like a scheme. When I told them I was already switching to someone else, they started bad mouthing that company as being unprofessional. Protection 1 would certainly know about being unprofessional.

    there ok but I feel like you should sign a 2year plan instead of 36months and the other thing is when you call to talk to someone about problems where your alarm goes off for no reason there reps are very unprofessional about handling the problem due to a mile function of there equipment like you created the problem I went through that a couple of times and when my contract is up I’m done with there services

    Protection 1 just acquired my current security company. I have been with Protection 1 for about two months now and I just had a security breach (on their part). Someone was able to call my account and gain access to information without using the verbal pass code. They did not even realize they were not talking to the account owner (myself) at the time. I called Protection 1 about it and they were scrambling for answers at first. Then they listed to the call and admitted that their employee did not request my verbal pass code and that they would make a note of this on my account. This is all that they said they would do to fix the situation. They apologized, but then their stance quickly changed when they realized that they were wrong but that I was not okay with them simply putting a note on my account. This is unbelievable! Essentially anyone with my phone number could have access my account. I am in the process of talking to their management about this, but I do not intend to continue my service with them. This is pretty scary!

    Great setup, equipment and service. Every time alarm went off I was notified within 15 seconds.
    Ended my 3rd year on the contract ask them what they could do for me they lower my bill $5 every month for a 1 year contract. During my 4th year all my batteries starting going out so called cust svc, they told me to buy 3v batteries at the Lowes store to save money.
    Replace all my batteries good to go.
    I only gave them an 8 because 3yr contract is tough plus they will charge you a lot of money to get anything new or upgraded.
    if you want to keep me for life you have to give me something every 3 to 5 years otherwise I just jump ship for the next new thing that installs for free:)

    The service is not good, their technicians are not very knowledgeable, Don’t give them your credit card number, they’ll keep it, they charged me two time for my yearly monitoring, it took a month to solve the problem. I had to change credit card number so they wouldn’t have it on file. I pay my monitoring by the year. I’ve been with them a long time, they started out good, but things changed.
    If you want service, be prepared to wait many hours.

    They are below average with the way they conduct business. If you have a problem you need to immediately ask for a supervisor because their standard customer service reps have no power to help.

    What they did not tell us was that their motion detection cameras only record a limited amount of clips. The call them “uploads” meaning they upload to the cloud server where they are stored. You start with 1000 uploads and they charge more for additional uploads or your camera stops working. We went though hell because we were told these cameras would record 24/7 with no limits on storage.

    Overall it took a few hours and multiple calls later, but we did get them to give us 15,000 uploads per month for no additional cost. I would say that they need to restructure their sales department and give their customer service reps more room to actually help customers rather than piss them off. I would not recommend Protection 1.

    I cannot say enough about this company. My husband signed up with them when they were Westinghouse. Stayed with them when they turned into Protection 1. Have lost count of the # of years we have been with them. Husband has passed and I am still with them. The agents are wonderful night or day. Would never give them up. They are the best. Would say give up the ones you are with and come to Protection 1. Love them and their people.

    I purchased the system in Houston TX and had AWESOME results. Great customer service, great technician, nothing but the best. 1 year later I moved to Raleigh NC (still under original contract) and the experience has been TERRIBLE. Installation tech shorted out the hvac system and didn’t know how to reset. ProtOne paid to have a hvac guy come out to reset..2 days later and under supervision of a contractor we hired. Missed appointments for problems relating to garage door operation, etc. A bunch of apologies and excuses but I’m still stuck with a $900 bill for an upgrade that is half hearted installed and I rarely even use the system anymore…don’t want to re-open pandora’s box. Not sure why there is such a difference between the various dealers/regions, but do your homework locally before signing on…they went from hero to zero with us pretty quickly.

    Worst service ever! Internal communication is the worst. They never get my messages right. When we set up appointments, they either no-show or they keep rescheduling because they are short staffed…(when did that become my problem?) We are definitely going to look for another security service for our business. However, based on the other reviews I have a feeling its going to be a battle to get out of our contract. I would NEVER recommend this company.

I’ve sent several emails and even wrote letters I still have not heard back. I’ve been battling with them for 10 months now. Horrible company to deal with. Do not use them.

    Had Protection 1 ever since they purchased Eagle Sentry in Las Vegas, Nevada. To monitor a house is a no brainer but if there is a problem, sending a reputable security company makes all the difference. When I had an alarm go off on a Saturday, monitoring called from Kansas (that is where Protection 1 monitors Las Vegas from on weekends, and I was told that security would be dispatched since I was not home. NO ONE ever showed up but when the security company was called, they said they could not check the rear of the property because a lock was on the gate. Problem was the THERE WAS NO LOCK ON THE GATE.and no report was ever left by the front door. Protection 1 stood by the security company and the story they told. The same thing happened at my business. An alarm went off and security responded in over an hour later. When I questioned the person that arrived they said they were on another alarm. The area the one person covered was E. Las Vegas and Henderson. an area that 8-10 security people should cover. My last issue was my new house where I wanted an outside camera (that worked) installed. Eight months later it is still not working and now I was just sent a registered letter cancelling my accounts. Nice way to push their problem under the table. Just get rid of the client and the problem and try and resolve it. The contract was terminated by a customer service rep. It never got to the Office of the CEO even though I was told that they worked for the Office of the CEO. When I called the person who cancelled the contract, the department that answered was ‘Customer Service’. I was also told that they would waive the 44 and 52 month contract even thought I never signed a ‘term’ contract. Goes to show how much they really know about what the field does to make sales and service your account. I would never recommend Protection 1 to anyone unless you can have a direct line to a person high then customer service.if you have issues.

    On July 7, I posted a negative review for Protect One. Spencer of the
    Marketing Manager started to contacted us by making an appointment with me thru email, saying that one of their technicians would come to my home to learn our needs. On the day of the appointment, my wife and I asked for leave for the whole day from our work and waited for the technician. It turned out they lied to us again – the technician never appeared in my home on that day or any other days later. Protect one stopped communicating with us too. No sorry, no emails. BUYER BEWARE, the company failed to keep its promise. They lie all the time, from the time before and after we signed their contract. All they want is to get you sign their contract and have you become their ATM machine.

All reviews are subject to moderation and approval. Any reviews that may resemble false information, or competitors of another company will need to be verified by our staff before being approved and published. We reserve the right to approve or deny any reviews left on this site.
