Protect America History

Protect America was founded in 1992 in Austin, Texas. The company provides home and business security systems, burglar alarms, and video monitoring services.

The company founded the first monitored, self installed business security system in America in 2005.  Mobile apps, where clients can monitor and change the settings of their systems, are also available. Protect America has approximately 500 full time employees and in 2012, the company expanded their outreach into Canada.

In addition to the usual burglar alarms, the company offers vehicle GPS tracking systems,  home security monitoring services, which include cellular, two-way voice, landline, and broadband monitoring services, as well as video surveillance.

Protect America was recently ranked as #1 in SDM magazine as the Best Overall Home Security Companies.

After I was pushed, and under duress and misrepresentation by the sales people at this “Protect” America and paid some $254 plus nearly $50 a month on 7/7/17, I received this set of junk sensors that easily fall, falsely alarm traumatizing my three pets and neighbors, and literally ruining my vacation. Not to mention fees incurred by falsely alerting my neighborhood police. I spoke to a dozen of these crooks (Damond, James, Laquita, etc.). They “promised” to call back and “secure” their “system” IN VAIN. Last, they claimed it is the desert (I live in Las Vegas) and it is incompatible with their “sensors.” Then, they held that once I come back from our vacation, they will troubleshoot or cancel and give me a refund. Empty promises, after they dragged me beyond 30 days “warrantee” to force me, under duress, to their so-called contract. I am contacting the FCC, the BBB in Austin, the Attorney General of TX, Yielp, all credit bureaus, and all social media. I cannot be legally and morally forced to pay for a grossly defective product.
Thanks,
Dr. Sarri

Worst security company ever. When it comes down to solving a problem, they won’t even take my calls!

I forwarded a couple of emails to the CEO’s comment field but unfortunately have receive no reply. I was initially impressed with the desire to please the consumer but have since lost hope, concerned that this is just meant to give the impression that customer service is valued. Protect America monitored my pre-existing wired alarm for just over 7 years. Since December my service is being paid for but NOT monitored. Just an absolute WASTE of my money. I was told that I needed to add a feature to my wired, landline service to continue the monitoring feature and thought it would be a good time to upgrade to a wireless system. Since receiving ALL the components I have been nothing but disappointed. The quality appears cheap, the monitor can just be unplugged, the siren is ONLY heard within the house unlike my current system, the cameras and siren require an outdoor outlet and the list continues. I should feel comfortable with my home security system and after receiving the items in the mail I didn’t and I voiced my concern. While the feature to move the sensors and all the components may be attractive to renters or those that move frequently, this IS NOT something that interest me. I’ve lived in my home for 7 years and have no plans to move. I want my sensors secure and I don’t want a mobile system. In fact, I’m please with the system I currently have. I have over 40 sensors throughout my entire house and I’ve never had a problem. My home is over 5,000 square feet and I was told I couldn’t use any of my pre-wired sensors. In fact, my door sensors are currently not visible giving it a nice clean finish. I have over 24 windows and doors on my first floor alone. When asked if someone could install, I was given a quote that doesn’t even include installation of the smoke detectors or cameras. Then I was provided a reference and when I called, they don’t provide that service in my area. Frustrated with the amount of time and the entire process I decided to complete the steps to get my current wired system monitored by Protect America. After spending hours on the phone with Protect America my system still is not being monitored. My husband and I walked through the process to connect the device but after being required to set my alarm off multiple times I REFUSE to do it again. My current wired system is great and the outside siren is a GREAT deterrent. As a result of setting my alarm off for Protect America to test the signal, I received calls from neighbors, visits from neighbors, and a couple of police visits all because of the continuous siren. I live in a nice neighborhood and appreciate the fact that my neighbors will contact the police when they hear an alarm, hence my disappointment that the alarm I received only sets off a local siren and the additional device received requires an outlet to even work. In fact, I was told to plug it in in the garage…Really? This is not how I want to protect my investment. I’m frustrated that I haven’t received ANY response regarding my initial comment and left wondering if customer service is truly valued at Protect America. I feel as though I’m stuck with something I DON’T want and I would think you want customers that are in fact pleased with both your service and quality. I don’t respect such business ethics. I have NOT installed any of the items nor do I want to and I attempted to just get my wired system monitored. Being that Protect American can not actively monitor my system I want to have the contract voided ASAP and return all the unused product I have. It serves me absolutely no purpose. If my situation is not resolved to my satisfaction I will forward communication to the BBB and use social media to express my frustration with Protect America. I would prefer not to go this route as I was happy with the monitoring services I received over the past 7 years. I would like to respectfully part ways and go with a monitoring company that can come to my house to ensure proper installation so that I feel save and protected in my home. I hope this complaint is directed to someone that can actually resolve my issue. Thanks, Ella Chasten 480-238-XXXX

My ex used my name as an emergency contact without my permission when he signed up for your service. Since then he has been arrested, changed his number and moved. I have no idea how to get a hold of him. I continue to receive calls from your company looking for him. I’ve explained to them that I don’t know where he is. I told them to stop calling. I told them I retained a lawyer and to call him. Yet I keep getting phone calls non-stop. I’ve filed a complaint with the Colorado State Attorney General, Texas State Attorney General, Consumer Finance Protection Bureau and the Better Business Bureau. I’ve tried to reason with the manager in charge of your call center. (Connor, Conrad?) but to no avail. If the calls do not stop immediately I will instruct my lawyer to move forward with legal remedies. Thank you.
