Overall Rating: 6.2 / 10 (Very good)

LifeShield is a fair choice for home security. Despite their five different monitoring stations across the country, their customer service and reputation is less than stellar. Their systems don't offer home automation features, and many sensors (such as flood, freeze, and smoke detectors) must be purchased separately.
