What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Long-term contracts: Three years may be longer than you want to be locked into Protect America, which is the term length for the required cellular backup.
  • Not the most affordable: With monthly prices ranging from $20 to $60 a month, you may up paying a non-negligible amount for backup.
  • Faulty camera: Protect America’s indoor camera didn’t impress us in terms of video and AI, resulting in a lot of false notifications.

Bottom Line

Free professional monitoring is nearly unheard of when it comes to the home security market, but Protect America is an exception. Plus, the system worked with Alexa, making it a great choice for those already in the Amazon ecosystem.
