AlarmGrid specializes in DIY home security solutions. It provides homeowners highly flexible options designed to meet their home security needs, and more importantly their budget. The company does not require any contract and homeowners are able to discontinue their services anytime with no fees and penalties. With monthly costs as low as $10, AlarmGrid is ideal for entry-level clients and those living in apartments.

 

What’s It Gonna Cost Me?

Price Breakdown

Monthly Monitoring

Installation

Of course theseitems could push installation costs beyond a thousand dollars, depending on the complexity of your system.

Major Concerns 

At $10 a month, AlarmGrid’s offer might seem to be a good bargain. But the basic package does not really offer any real value. The company does offer Cellular Communication, Remote Home Automation and Video Surveillance which we think is a must for any modern home security system but with a $10 add-on price for each the true price will actually be at the $40 mark.

 

The Fine Print

No contracts, no cancelation fees

 

The Bottom Line

AlarmGrid’s services are mainly targeted toward entry level customers with their DIY offering. It’s no contract, no cancelation fee offer makes it easy for homeowners searching for a quick way to secure their home and property. AlarmGrid offers homeowners a wide choice of security products that could be tailored to their individual needs.

AlarmGrid is equipped with security systems that include state of the art security equipment. Although the company does not have the same clout as most of the more established home security providers, It is perfect for DIY and entry level customers searching for basic home protection. However, those searching for a more robust solution should opt for more established companies.
