Pros

  • Small, Local Business
  • 24/7 Monitoring Service

Small, Local Business

As a nationally ranked security company by Security Dealers Magazine, WWS provides professional crime and fire protection to Nassau and Suffolk Counties and Metro New York. 

With a local-minded business strategy, WWS runs a UL-listed central monitoring station, which means that their 24/hr monitoring services are handled at a local level. 

24/7 Monitoring Service

This is also accompanied by a trained staff of technicians that are available 24/7, 365 days a year.  Between the strong community presence and the usage of top-notch technology, WWS has established themselves as a leader in home security for the New York metropolitan area.

Cons

  • 5-Year Contract
  • Costly Extended Warranty

5-Year Contract

Common among many nationally recognized home security systems is a 2-3 year contract.  However, WWS requires a 5-year contract.  This locks in customers for a much longer time period than most other companies. 

This problem is compounded by the fact that they only provide a one year warranty on their equipment. 

Costly Extended Warranty

Customers can add on extended warranty protection that goes beyond the one year, but it increases the monthly payments, and at $40/mo you are already paying more than what many other companies charge.

Our Recommendation

WWS & GC Alarm Inc. is a well-known name in home security for the New York metro area and is currently serving over 14,000 customers.  If you are interested in WorldWide Security, you will be with them for at least a 5 year period and pay extra up front for the equipment them.

We recommend using a less expensive home security company that you don't need to pay a lot upfront: Link Interactive or Frontpoint.
