Security System Overview
Safeguard Security offers a starting package that is comparable to many other dealers in the industry. Their basic package includes a 100% wireless system that uses Honeywell equipment and is monitored in-house. They will install and activate the system for $99 upfront and $35.95/month for 36 months. However, if you would like to pay more upfront and reduce the length of the contract this option is available. For example, a customer has the option of reducing the contract to one or two years, or can even pay for the entire package upfront and just pay month to month. All basic packages come with the following:
- 1 control panel
- 3 door sensors
- 1 motion sensor
- 1 key fob
- Sign & Stickers
- 24/hr monitoring
Safeguard Security has years of experience and high customer satisfaction and has earned an A+ Better Business Bureau ranking. For new customers with a flexible budget Safeguard offers a unique approach towards contracts. Most security dealers require a certain length of contract, typically around 3-5 years; however, if you can afford to pay extra upfront for some or all of the equipment you can lower the contract length. This policy is rare in the industry and shows Safeguard’s commitment to customer satisfaction.

There is also the option of purchasing rental programs to help cover the cost of replacing equipment, but it will cost you a few extra bucks to extend the warranty or purchase a rental program.
