Pros

  • Lifetime Warranty on Equipment
  • Professional, Free Installation

Lifetime Warranty on Equipment

The most impressive part of Select Security's basic package is the lifetime equipment warranty. For the full life of the contract, all equipment and batteries are covered and can be serviced by a full-time technician at no cost. The only time customers are required to pay out of pocket is if the equipment was broken at the fault of the user (e.g. the ladder knocks the door sensor off).

Professional, Free Installation

Select Security uses expert installers to take care of every SmartHome installation. This ensures that the job is done right and meets your exacting standards. From scheduling through the final walkthrough, our professional team is committed to your satisfaction. No matter how much equipment you purchase, installation is free.

Cons

  • Select Security Complaints
  • High Costs

Select Security Complaints

Select Security has a very poor rating on Best Home Security Companys. Their average score from customers is a 0.4 out of 10. Overall, Select Security reviews are very negative. Here are the most common things people are complaining about:

  • Issues with system functionality
  • Equipment failure
  • False alarms
  • Alarm Force being bought out by Select Security
  • Customer service miscommunication
  • Auto-renewal on contracts
  • Cancellation problems

High Costs

The company only has two packages and the only difference between the two is an indoor camera. Both packages are more expensive than other home security companies: $42.95/month for 3 window/door sensors and 1 motion sensor; $54.95 for the same equipment and an indoor camera. Protect America offers the same basic package for $19.99/month for landline monitoring ($41.99/month for cellular monitoring).

Our Recommendation

While Select Security offers some of the most advanced technology in the industry, they are more expensive than other providers and limit their customers when it comes to installation options. For these reasons, we recommend looking into our top home security systems.
