Clearly these fraudsters have paid to be included in the top 5 alarm companies. DON'T TOUCH THEM WITH A BARGE POLE!!! I ordered a system in April and paid a professional handyman (who has worked for alarm companies, so yes he knows exactly how to install) to install the system, and have been paying $29.99 per month. Two months in I go repeated warnings on the control panel that the upper level door was open. I checked, and the door was NOT open, but securely locked. I did however notice the connecter device had slid down my door, so I called to complain to the company that either they send someone out to correct the problem or release me from my contract so I could get service from a...

If you are after an easy to install DIY system with full real people support and active real people monitoring, look no further. Yes, I am a real person and no, I am not receiving anything for this review. They did ask me to write a review though. The system comes pre-programmed based off your online setup. The install is very straightforward as is the system. On three occasions I ended up calling both Link and Alarm.com for both installation and alarm questions. I was a bit surprised to get a person pretty darn quickly who knew what they were talking about. My system took several hours to install and included no less than 25 or sensors and a door lock. The system integrates with... Read More

After a recent home burglary, I spent some time researching security systems and selected a package offered by Link Interactive. I received the system in a few days and installed the system over the course of two days. Pros: I was able to select from an assortment of available sensors and control modules and like the available add-ons including thermostat control and control of door locks. The system is attractive and the sensors are reasonably unobtrusive. Our old ADT system had smaller wireless sensors, but these are fine. I like using the Alarm.com app to arm, disarm, and view the log. It is generally easy to add new sensors after the initial installation and expand the... Read More

Customer service is very good, had a component act up a bit which is the reason for 4 out of 5 stars. Great DIY solution overall.

Overall, I am please with Link Interactive. The equipment was easy to install. Since I have an engineering background, the setup was also rather simple. I have had ongoing issues with the Skybell, and have a ticket that is, as yet, unsolved by Alarm.com technical support (three week old ticket at this point). I would recommend Link/Alarm.com find a different doorbell camera, since this model is a network resource hog. Also, the outdoor video camera (V721) has a bit of a drawback, in that it has to be plugged into a 110V outlet. That cost me a bit of $$$ since I had to have an electrician install the outlet. It is not a heavy network user and is far superior to the Skybell in... Read More
