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|
|Door and window stickers|
|Door and window sensors||3||9||14|

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.
Wilfred really went extra miles to try to win my heart back. We have been a long term customer, as usual, we called for customer service for issues, but I didn't get the treatment I expected but "you are on your own" kinda feeling in the end. I decided to leave and just before I completely locked my heart from you, Wilfred called and he was able to work things out for me, and knowing that I am already on my way out, he had to do so much extra just to keep me. Wilfred is a keeper. Kudos to him!
Hi Karen, Thank you for the feedback. We're happy to hear about your positive customer experience and will make sure to pass along the kudos to Wilfred and his supervisor. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
Thank you, you have successfully subscribed to our newsletter! Enjoy reading our tips and recommendations.
On Tuesday, August 27, 2019, Mr. Benjamin ** spent countless minutes helping my husband Brian ** troubleshoot the new and updated products from Protect America. We have been a customer of Protect America for 10 years. The time, energy, effort and support from Mr. Benjamin exemplify true leadership and patience. My husband is very, very technical and detailed, so I know what he was working with. I commend him for his honesty and drive to find an answer when he didn’t know them. Please take the time to acknowledge Mr. Benjamin **. for his sincere dedication in helping and listening to the customer. Suggestions: A paid day off, promotion, gift cards all sounds appropriate in keeping "Great Help".
We greatly appreciate the feedback and want to thank you for being a valued customer of Protect America. We will definitely pass this on to Benjamin's leaders.Sincerely,
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!!!

Amanda was very courteous and helpful in every way. I will be sure to pass this along to my friends and recommend your company to any that are interested in a security system. I look forward to having a long and pleasant relationship with your company.
In a word “Professional Employee”!! After having ADT for over 6 years and having problems for the last 6 months AND a horrible experience with “Customer no service” I decided to break ranks and look for options (including installing hardware myself????) Your Company provided a Balance I didn’t know existed. The sales and operations (Bart) were excellent. I do believe that finding the difference your company provides will grow Protect America to #1 in this industry. Good luck (your Team proved to be Wonderfully different).

We greatly appreciate the feedback and want to thank you for joining the Protect America family.Sincerely,
When I moved and no longer needed their service I was bound by a contract for 6 months until it’s ended. I have paid each month and now that my contract is complete Protect America will not cancel my contract until I sign paperwork and will continue to bill me. This is not how a customer of 3 years should be treated. I do not understand why they make it so difficult to just stop billing me for services I am no longer using. I would not recommend this company for any services and as a veteran I will not let my fellow veterans go through this headache as we have other issues that we deal with every day. DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE!!
Hello Bobby,Thank you for the opportunity to address your concerns. It appears we've had a couple of conversations with you and explained the cancellation process which requires a 30 day written notice. We also informed you that a cancellation email would be sent and that you would need to e-sign the cancellation link in order to complete process. When the acknowledgement link is signed, the account is automatically setup to cancel thirty (30) days from that point. The Agreement that you signed also outlines the 30-day requirement.
You will receive your cancellation link at firstname.lastname@example.org within 24 to 48 hours and as a courtesy to you we are waiving the final balance.
Please feel free to contact us at 800-951-5111 with any additional questions or concerns.
The purchase was smooth and at a great price. We setup the system and called to complete the activation process and spend over an hour and a half on hold waiting to talk to someone to finish the setup. Yes there is an online chat feature but when purchased they said someone would talk us through the setup. This is ridiculous. If I wasn’t locked into a contract I would cancel. So beware. This is how they get you, once you’ve signed the contract it is very difficult to reach a human on the phone.
Thank you for the opportunity to address your concerns.It appears you have been a valued customer since 12/31/13 and decided to renew with us on 12/31/19. Thank you for your continued service and remaining a valued customer. Although there are times we have peak hours where the call volume is high, we do offer the chat service, the option to leave a callback number for us to return your call or text us to request a callback.
Please feel free to contact us with any additional concerns.Sincerely,
Will never go with this company again. The cancellation process costed me over $100 just to end service with them. Had them for four years and didn’t use the system at all. Asked them to waive the fees after being a customer for years and they refused. You have to sign a form to cancel and pay a last month fee. Absolutely will never be a customer again.
Thank you for the opportunity to address your concerns Our records show that your final payment of $102.69 was not to end service with us; but it was for a 3 month past due balance. Although you chose not to use your Protect America system, the service was made available to you. It appears that you have signed the cancellation link and as a courtesy to you we have waived the final month.
Please feel free to contact us at 800-951-5111 with any additional questions or concerns.Sincerely,
