Don’t be fooled by “free alarm system” scams

Companies that sell you on “free” alarm system equipment are, in fact, hiding the equipment cost in your 3-5 year contract. What you don’t realize is that your “free” equipment is paid for within the first year of your contract but your higher rates remain the same even after it’s paid off. This leaves you stuck with a high monthly rate for an additional 2+ years. And what happens if you’re overpaying and the company’s customer service is terrible? Too bad. You are now stuck with a contract that keeps you bound to the low-quality monitoring system company.

Finally a Austin alarm company that values transparency

We value honesty. With this honesty, we ensure there are no hidden costs with equipment fees by raising your monthly rate. Instead, we are fully transparent with all costs associated with a monitoring system by showing you the price of the equipment and monitoring rate separately. This way you can know exactly what you are paying for upfront and, additionally, leaving you with our standard, low-monthly monitoring rate. We are the low cost leading home security company in Austin, Texas.

No contracts. No price increases.

Austin home alarm price quotes made easy over the phone

Don’t you hate it when you call a company for answers to your questions and they hold your hostage over the phone with their lengthy sales-tactics? At Smith Thompson Security – Austin, we are transparent with our pricing, even over the phone. We know your time is valuable and we don’t want you to feel that you need to schedule time out of your busy day to talk to a high-pressure sales guy that talks you into things you don’t really need.

Skip the DIY. We cost less and install it for you

We offer smart home security and automation in Austin, TX at a low rate of just $29.95/month, even if you add cameras and videos to your package. This is significantly cheaper than most companies who charge between $50-$70/month for the exact same service and they require a contract. And with Smith Thompson Security, you don’t even have to install the service yourself. We send you a professional technician who handles all the logistics of installing, testing, and demoing the system for you. Don’t waste your precious time trying to figure it all out yourself! We are happy to do it for you!

What our customers say
Excellent Reviews

Don’t take our word for it, look us up. We have excellent ratings on the Better Business Bureau, Trustpilot, Nextdoor, Angie’s List, Google, Yelp, and Facebook. Since 1978, we’ve worked hard to establish and maintain a solid reputation, and our online reviews back it up.

100% in-state monitoring at our Texas campus

We never outsource our monitoring out of state. What most people don’t realize is that after a technician comes and installs their monitoring system, your account is then handled by a 3rd party monitoring center. This monitoring center handles millions of other customers from thousands of different alarm companies, typically resulting in less than desirable customer service. Furthermore, since the monitoring system is not exclusive in the companies they serve, you will not get the personal and customizable service you need. At Smith Thompson Security, however, we own and operate our own private monitoring facility with 24/7 customer service. Additionally, we have a UL Listed and Approved status. This means that we open our facility up to yearly safety, disaster recovery plan, and systems audit. With this, our entire building is under 24-hour surveillance. This ensures you are getting the quality service you need and deserve when investing in a home monitoring system.
