We’ve lived in our Naples home for 13 years, and just recently we’ve been talking about investing in a home security system. You might be asking why, after 13 years, are we now considering a security system. We’re thinking is that it would provide an additional level of comfort and safety.

We’ve been investigating alarm companies, but today I found a review of the best home security systems in Naples by

Topping 6Webs list is FrontPoint Security, a company that’s been in business since 2007 and is accredited by the Better Business Bureau and maintains an A rating. According to 6Webs, not even a handful of companies meet that profile. FrontPoint has an excellent customer service record and it offers a simple, do-it-yourself wireless system with cellular monitoring services. More importantly, if you are not satisfied, FrontPoint offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Next up is Protect America, which has been in business for over 20 years. Customers are offered GE equipment which carries a lifetime guarantee as long as you are a Protect America customer. There are many equipment options and monitoring plans to choose from and there are no upfront costs for equipment.

In business for over 100 years with over 6 million customers, ADT is known for offering a quality service at an affordable price. ADT only offers systems that can be professionally installed, but has a vast array of products and services to choose from. ADT is accredited with the Better Business Bureau and carries a B+ rating, but 6Webs recommends looking up the local ADT security dealer in your area to find out if they too are listed on the Better Business Bureau.

LifeShield, started in 2002, is known for its innovation since it holds over 20 patents in the home security industry. Both do-it-yourself and professionally installed systems are offered, and LifeShield provides its own equipment giving them an edge in the industry and control over the process from start to finish.

And rounding out 6Webs list of the top home security systems in Naples is Vivint, which has been around for 15 years and is excellent at blending home automation with home security. It is also known for having one of the best control panels in the home security market. If you are looking for a high-end system, Vivint may be best for you.

I’ll be honest … the only company I’ve heard of in 6Webs review is ADT. But now, after reading their review, I’m encouraged to check out these other companies. If you are buying a home in Naples, a security system is always a wise investment, plus it helps with your homeowner’s insurance, too!
