What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Expensive monitoring: Starting at $39.99 a month, Brinks doesn’t have the lowest monthly fees around.
  • Long-term contracts: We had to sign three-year contract with Brinks, which means we have to pay the monthly professional monitoring fee for at least three years.
  • New app: While we like that Brinks has its own app now, the Brinks Home app is new and still have a few kinks that need ironing out.

Bottom Line

Brinks is a well-rounded security system that offers professional monitoring and installation, security and safety monitoring, and great customer support. Brinks works well with home automation platforms, although the long-term contract and pricey monthly fee might give homeowners on a budget a pause.
