We’ve never had a bad experience when dealing with Frontpoint.

It’s a straightforward, stress-free experience every time we call in, and Frontpoint reps are always willing to answer any question we throw at them.

Vivint has completely revamped its business model for new customers with Vivint Flex Pay, and we think it could be a game changer in the industry—hence the jump to our #2 spot.

We really like what we’re seeing from Vivint and its willingness to adapt based on customer feedback, which was previously not one of its strengths.

Link Interactive offers 12-, 24-, and 36-month contract options, which makes it great for renters and anyone who isn’t ready for a long-term commitment.

Monitoring prices start at and go up to per month, making it more affordable than Frontpoint or Vivint and one of the more competitively priced professionally monitoring services on our list.

Superior customer service, industry-leading equipment, and overall transparency make Frontpoint the best home alarm system for the 11th year in a row.

It got rid of predesigned packages and instead lets you design your system and choose from multiple contract lengths to fit your needs.
