Link Home Security
The Who, What, When, Where and Why of Link Home Security
Last updated: February 1st, 2017. Stumbled upon Link Interactive and wondering if they are the right choice as your home security provider? They are widely unknown except throughout Costco where they sell their DIY home alarm system. Link Home is a great company and often go unnoticed against big company's in home security. They have monitoring services nationwide, which is nice if the times comes you need to move.
A look into the good and the bad of Link Interactive security system:
- A+ BBB rating
- Uses Alarm.com's technology
- Free smartphone control
- Low priced home automation
- 30 day money back guarantee
- 95% rated it as 'easy to install'
- Crash and smash technology
- Z - Wave supported
- 1 yr warranty on equipment
- Self-install (but good too cause you save $99 on install)
- Old vibe to company
- No amazing deals or promotions
- Their website design, see screenshot below. It just doesn't look or feel as professional as Frontpoint's and others.
With the good and the bad out of the way, let's get into more details about their prices, security system and history.
What's this going to cost?
Very affordable and a low monthly rate. Other than Protect America, they have the best all-around price.
Installation - Free. Easy peel-and-stick technology where you put the door sensors on yourself. If you are not comfortable doing this (they can assist you over the phone) then we suggest using ADT.
Activation - Free! This is a standard hidden cost with most companies. You don't have to worry about getting nickel and dimed with Link Interactive.
- Standard $29/mo. Wireless equipment with smash and crash technology. Also comes with 2 way voice and an impressive list of home automation features that cost much more with Vivint.
- +$5/mo. Full home automation including cameras.
Here is a comparison chart of how their prices stack up to other companies. It may be a little bit of a stretch but our research and testing shows it is true advertising.
The Gadgets to Hold off a Hoard of Zombies with...
Even with the low rates they have they give you great equipment.
Typically paying less a month gives you a worse security system. Link Interactive impressed us by giving a standard touchscreen 2gig panel with every package with choices of adding:
- Indoor/outdoor cameras
- Lighting controls
- Smart Thermostats (energy savings)
- Garage door controls
- Smart door locks
- Disaster sensors
They offer an impressive list of equipment and the most you pay per month is $34 compared to Vivint who would charge $74+ for the energy packages.
Way back when...
You may start to wonder why you haven't heard more about this company.
Founded: In 1952. They started back in the day when you had to tear your house apart and rewire it for a new home security system.
Located: In the rocky mountains of Ogden, Utah.
Retailer: They don't put a ton of money into online advertising or do door to door sales like most security companies. They have grown slow and steadily over 50+ years by being offered in many retail stores.
