Link Interactive offers professional monitoring and flexible contract lengths—which is unusual in home security. Plus, customers have the chance to choose each and every piece of security equipment themselves.
For a fully customized experience, we recommend Link Interactive. It’s a professionally monitored system with DIY installation, and you get to choose every piece of equipment to fit your needs. Especially for a second home, a tailored security system might be the best way to keep costs down.
Link Interactive’s monthly pricing is very similar to Vivint’s, with professional monitoring plans starting at $30.99 and going up to $44.99. You'll need to choose a higher plan for home automation support, mobile access, and video monitoring.
One of the things we like about Link Interactive is the shorter and more flexible contract length options of 12-, 24-, and 36-months. You can also choose to pay for all the equipment up front to get a month-to-month monitoring contract. All equipment costs are easy to find online, and we love that kind of transparency.
Link Interactive makes it simple to customize your equipment to your needs. The range of choices is impressive, with multiple types of motion sensors and door and window sensors. Link also offers several solid security cameras and doorbell cameras. And with video monitoring, Link’s video analytics let you decide what types of motion you want your cameras to pick up on (people, pets, or cars), making it a truly personalized system.
Link also has environmental sensors—a smoke/heat detector, a CO detector, a flood sensor, and, impressively, a flood/heat/freeze sensor. For vacation homes that go unused for long stretches, these sensors mean you don’t have to worry about showing up to a flooded basement or frozen pipes.
Like the security equipment, you purchase each smart home device individually so you get exactly what you want. You can choose from smart thermostats, smart door locks, smart light bulbs, and smart outlets. Link Interactive equipment is compatible with Z-Wave connectivity to give you plenty of expansion options as well.
ASecureLife’s recommendation: Get only the equipment you really need and keep costs down with Link Interactive’s home security system. Plus, you can truly personalize your system with the advanced video analytics.
