LiveWatch Reviews: Are They As Good As They Seem?

LiveWatch Reviews

More than 200,000 people use LiveWatch for their home security needs. Previously known as SafeMart, LiveWatch offers good equipment that is completely wireless and you can self install. Their touchscreen control panel has a built-in camera to capture an intruder if they try to disarm your panel. This is a rare feature that is offered and we think is pretty cool.

suretyCAM Review: Keeping Ohio Secure?

Suretycam logo

SuretyCAM is still a relatively small home security company. Their security and automation packages are only available in central Ohio. SuretyCam's DIY solutions, called suretyDIY, are available in the entire U.S., except for Florida. A quick Google search for suretyCAM reviews will reveal that this company is known for its customer service.

From what I've learned, they try to understand your needs so that you get the system you want. However, it's difficult to find information on this company. There is practically zero information out there about suretyCAM and suretyDIY unless it's from the company itself. Also, the information below is both about suretyCAM and suretyDIY combined giving the confusing nature of their website (interlinking both services). We try our best to sift through this surety mess for you!... Read More »
