24/7 professional monitoring comes with every Protect America system and ranges from $20 to $60 a month depending on your equipment and needs. Like Brinks, you’ll set up your Protect America system with someone over the phone who will test all of its components. Plus if you have any issues, customer support is great over live chat and admittedly, not so great over the phone. I would especially recommend Protect America to Android users, as the Android app has over three stars. At only $149, Minut is by far the most affordable security system I’ve reviewed. That probably has something to do with the fact that it’s only composed of one component.

The one big advantage in going with a wireless home security system over a hard wired setup is in the installation cost. You will save hundreds if not thousands of dollars in installation costs by going wireless. In fact if you can hang a picture on the wall, odds are you can install a wireless security system yourself. With a wireless security system there are no wires to run other than the electrical cord on the control interface. You'll likely just need to be able to screw in a sensor here and there, or in some cases just stick it on via the adhesive backing. That means you or a paid installer won't have to drill through walls, concrete, steel, fish for and run wires through walls, and hook everything up to your home's power box which could even need a costly electrical addition.
