Protect America Profile

Today's Date: September 25, 2020

Protect America has been providing affordable home security solutions across the US for over 25 years. They offer self-install security equipment and 24/7 professional monitoring services, with plans starting at just $19.99/month.

Getting Started

Setting up your home security system with Protect America is easy. Just choose the equipment package and type of monitoring plan you want, and they’ll ship you everything you need to get started – straight to your door. Equipment could arrive as soon as the next day.

Don’t like the thought of a stranger coming into your home for installation and knowing exactly where your home security system is? Protect America’s state-of-the-art security equipment is self-install, meaning you can install it yourself with no tools necessary.

Self-installation should be a breeze and take no more than a couple hours, but Protect America’s customer support team is available 7 days a week should you encounter any issues.


Protect America offers three types of monitoring plans: landline monitoring, cellular monitoring, or broadband monitoring. The price you pay for each one will vary depending on which equipment package you pair it with.

Pairing any equipment package with landline monitoring will be cheaper than pairing it with broadband or cellular monitoring. However, landline monitoring means your home security system is connected to Protect America’s 24/7 monitoring center through a wired phone line – which means burglars could potentially cut your phone wire and disable your system’s ability to communicate with the center.

If you’d rather pay more for added peace of mind, opting for a broadband or cellular monitoring plan is your best bet. Broadband monitoring means your security system communicates with the monitoring center via a broadband internet connection, whereas cellular monitoring connects your system to the monitoring center via a wireless cellular signal.

There are pros and cons to both, so be sure to do your research and talk to an expert before you make up your mind. See below for more information on equipment and pricing.


No more installation fees, long wait times or strangers in your home! Protect America provides self-install home security equipment with a limited lifetime warranty, so you can be in full control.

Protect America has three standard equipment packages to choose from – Copper, Silver and Platinum. The only differentiator between packages is the number of door/window sensors included: Copper has 3, Silver has 9, and Platinum has 14.

In addition to door/window sensors, each package also includes:

  • Standard control panel
  • 1 motion detector
  • 1 yard sign
  • 4 door/window stickers

Prices per package vary based on the type of monitoring plan you choose (landline, cellular or broadband).

Protect America also offers a wide range of top-notch security equipment that isn’t included in their standard equipment packages, like HD indoor/outdoor cameras, garage door controllers, keychain remotes, smart door locks and more.

Protect America provides a locked-in monthly rate, so you can rest assured knowing your monthly service cost won’t ever go up. Monthly prices vary depending on which type of monitoring plan you want (landline, cellular or broadband) and which equipment package you choose (Copper, Silver or Platinum).

Although Protect America advertises their lowest possible monthly price of $19.99/month, this only covers landline monitoring with the Copper equipment package. If you opt for cellular or broadband monitoring with the Copper equipment package, the price jumps up to $41.99/month.

The Silver equipment package costs $37.99/month with landline monitoring or $49.99/month with cellular or broadband monitoring. The Platinum package will run you $42.99/month with landline monitoring or $54.99/month with broadband or cellular monitoring.

It should also be noted that the plans listed here don’t include any home automation features. If you want to upgrade to HD video service, remote door lock & light control, smoke & fire monitoring and various other home automation features, you’ll have to pay an additional fee.

All prices are subject to change.
