I've been a customer of Protect America for years and recently upgraded my system thru the online Chat. Great customer service! I have had a couple accidental activation over the years, too, and they respond very promptly. I'm confident that they'll be there if there's a real emergency.Read Full Review
The customer service was so easy to get real-time support, promptly, while lounging on my couch. I accessed the real-time support from an iOS app that I downloaded. The interface of the app is so simple to use - very intuitive. No documentation needed. Simple and effective.Read Full Review
How does Protect America work?
Protect America offers simple, affordable home security systems with a straightforward DIY setup that takes less than an hour to complete. Using Protect America’s automation features, you can control settings throughout your home, like heating and cooling, lights, and powered window blinds. You don’t have to pay for equipment from Protect America, just the monthly monitoring fee.
Each Protect America home security system comes with free use of the Protect America app: SMART Connect. The app can arm and disarm the system, turn lights on and off, lock and unlock doors and stream video from security cameras.
Protect America cost
Protect America offers a low price guarantee, which is not at all common among home security companies. The cost for their Copper plan is already one of the lowest you will find anywhere for a good home security system. Protect America does not charge customers for the cost of equipment, just a monthly monitoring rate, which is another rarity.
Protect America plans and packages
Protect America offers three plans: Copper, Silver and Platinum. The Platinum package costs slightly more than the Silver plan, but provides 5 additional sensors. The Copper plan is likely best for those with smaller homes who don’t need tons of equipment. Every package with a Protect America yard sign and decals. See what comes with each package below:
|Copper plan||Silver plan||Platinum plan|

I just had an awesome experience with rep Kevin **. He was very patient and professional. He helped me to retrieve my payment history for tax purposes and he renewed my contract with my free camera! I’m so excited! I can’t wait to use it. I am very pleased with Protect America!
I called to ask questions about their Alarm systems and I got the best salesperson I have ever talked to. He was so knowledgeable of the product and had patience being I am a older person and had many questions. A great asset to any company. Thank you.
Every call has gone smoothly, and my system performs very well. I love the features and it's pretty unbeatable for the price. I can't say enough times how impressed I am with Protect America's customer service as it definitely blows any other company away.
You should be so lucky to be connected to a Customer Care Representative who's name is Brandt. I have just established a contract with Protect America. I'm very happy with my service. I live alone and have had some break ins. I didn't understand one procedure (something I was doing wrong) and Customer Care Brandt couldn't have been any kinder in explaining it to me. He took time to talk about products I was interested in and explained in detail how it worked and if it would be beneficial to my needs. He is a valuable employee who really likes his job. After our conversation, I was in a great mood and I felt I got the best education in this companies products and services. He really represented your company in the most excellent way. Thanks Protect America!
The woman we first spoke to had zero interest in helping us, suggesting we would have to wait 4 years before we could get a new system installed and it would cost $150.00 to have a customer service person come out. This, as we found out, was a total fabrication. The young man we spoke to was very understanding (he was a supervisor) his name is Joshua **. He took the time to work with us and understand what to do. The original sensor on the window frame no longer worked and I was unable to remove it. His suggestion was simple. Put the new sensor in a new place and we did. It works great and we are so grateful to him for the time and patience he showed to a customer who has been with you for 20 years.
I called the same 800# I have used for 10 yrs and was told they showed my address and account, but no longer carried my acct as active. I was given a different # to 'Central Station' by the first operator, Central Sta. confirmed she had my account and it was active. I was ANGRY you changed the 800# on me and I did not know. I tried your regular 800 951-5111 - message - option 4 then another message - option 6 - sat on hold forever listening to advertisements for Protect America upgrades and got more frustrated...
Went to your website, more angry than I can say, and opted to use Chat. Was helped by Neal. Very long conversation but he helped me calm down, helped me recover my PW to my phone App and also I updated my phone book with your current numbers. Neal is OK, never let my anger get to him and he was knowledgeable and took care of me. BUT UNDERSTAND THAT IF A REAL ALARM HAD BEEN GOING ON AND I CALLED THE OLD NUMBER THEY WOULD HAVE TURNED ME AWAY. That stinks!!!
Recently I had a sensor that went off twice without any reason. I read that the battery might need to be changed so I tried that and the system was still telling me the window was open, so I contacted customer support at Protect America. My support person Gloria was just outstanding. We did several tests on the old one and she said that it appeared I needed a new one. They would send me one for $5.00 since it was under warranty, but I had went ahead and took advantage of their winter sale and purchased a couple extra just in case. Anyway, she helped me clear my history status, and then I installed the new one which we tested. She walked me thru the entire process. After deleting the old sensor and registering the new one, we set it up and my system is now back up. I am so glad to have had the great support and want to thank Protect America and its great staff, and thank Gloria for her help and patience.
I have been with you guys for I don't know how long... I believe I just renewed for the 3rd time, as well as set up my business with y'all almost 2 years ago. I have loved you guys from the beginning, and have continued to use y'all as well as tell everyone about y'all and sign up some new customers. Every time I talk with customer service or chat, they are always super nice and helpful. Have never had one bad experience with any aspect of y'all's business. Even today, getting my service moved and needing to get a new sensor, I was able to get more service from the specialist than I expected. Y'all definitely go above and beyond with your customers, and that is something this day in age. Thank you and keep it up!!

Sensor issue. It was very helpful to be able to handle this via chat. I was good until you told me I needed to give you a forty word review for a sensor issue. A little excessive to me. It was handled promptly by your customer service area.
We appreciate your feedback!
Customer service is superb and amazing to work with! David was able to send me straight over to Lindsey and she was able to help me out beyond my expectations the first time around. Thank you very much for all of the assistance!
Thank you Aaron for the feedback! Please let us know if you have any other questions!

I need to update my payment information and make a payment, as well as find put when my contract expired with the company. The customer service person was very quick to help with the issue. Britney was her name I believe.
We appreciate your feedback and are glad that our Care team was able to assist you in updating your account information.
Working with Gloria over Chat this morning to assist me with a module install was a great experience! No rushing and explained every step that needed to be done. We got everything up and running in no time. She is a CHAT ROCKSTAR!!
