Overall Rating: 7.5 / 10 (Very good)

With over 60 years in the business, Link Interactive offers reliable, customizable home security systems tailored to homeowners' needs and budget. They provide cellular monitoring with 2-way communication, three different contract lengths, a 3-year rate lock, and a 3-year warranty on all equipment. They do, however, charge upfront for the equipment and their monthly rates may seem steep in comparison to similar products on the market.

Link Interactive has been awesome. The salesman wasn't pushy at all and answered my questions. I thought the installation would be more difficult but it was super easy. I was done in just over an hour. I would highly recommend Link!

The customer experience with link was awesome. The sales process was very consumer friendly and I didn't feel pushed into a decision which was my experience with Frontpoint and Protect America. Link was not only helpful during but, more importantly, after the sale was made. Set up was simple and their tech support team has been helpful after the fact with any questions. We will definitely recommend them to our friends and family.

Did a lot of shipping and Link ended having the most features. They were also cheaper by a long shot! Love my new smart thermostat and everything else works great!
