This review comes from our Director of Content Gabe Turner.

If your new year’s resolution was to make your home safer, then you’re watching the right video. In this review, I’m going over the best security systems of 2019 from top companies like ADT, Protect America, Frontpoint, Vivint, and more. I break it down into the best security system with no monthly fees, the most affordable security system, the best systems with Amazon Alexa and Google Home, and the best systems for seniors, businesses, apartments, homeowners, pets, and more.

Ideally, I’m looking for systems that put the customers in the driver’s seat. I always appreciate the option to self-monitor, along with customizable kits and flexible contracting. Of course, I also want the option to get 24/7 professional monitoring, which I recommend for all security systems. Aside from that, I’ll discuss system components, customer support, and mobile apps to give you a good idea of which security system is right for you.
