Smart Home Security Systems & Camera Options To Protect Your Home in Houston

Looking for something a little higher end with more features? Our 7” touchscreen IQ2 panel is ultra-thin, works with cameras and is smart home ready. It looks great on the wall, feels like your phone, and includes a built-in photo frame to display your favorite pictures. It comes with a built-in app control service, so you can all your favorite features from the palm of your hand. You get dual path connectivity, which means your panel is connected by LTE cellular wireless, and wifi. That ensures your system gets responded to every time, plus it’s significantly faster when interreacting with your smartphone app. The IQ2 panel is Power G sensor compatible too. Most Houston alarm companies cut corners and use non-power G, unencrypted sensors. Not us! Power G sensors have 4X the range with military grade 2-way encryption, as well as automatic signal adjustment to improve battery life that ensures reliable connection, and inference circumvention to ensure your signals never get blocked by other wireless protocols. You’ll also get exciting features like Bluetooth touchless disarming, disarm photos from the built-in panel cameras, and a built-in glass break detector. It will work with most existing alarm sensors, and is compatible with devices like indoor/outdoor cameras, z wave locks, lights, thermostats, and garage door openers.

“Free alarm systems” are nothing but tricks.

Houston home alarm companies that offer “free” alarm systems are just hiding the equipment cost in your 3-5-year contract. That equipment is paid for within the first year, but do they lower your rate once it’s paid off? No. You’re stuck at that $60-$70 monthly rate for at least another 2+ years. That forces you to greatly overpay. Besides overpaying, what if their service is poor? Too bad, you’re trapped in their contract.

Finally a transparent Houston Alarm Company

We don’t hide equipment fees by rolling them into a high monthly rate. At Smith Thompson Security we believe the right thing to do is, is to show you the price of the equipment and monitoring rate separately. That way you REALLY know what you’re spending. Even if you take advantage of our 12 months same as cash financing option, when it’s paid off, all you have left is our low monthly monitoring rate.

No Contracts. No Price Increases.

Alarm system pricing right over the phone.

Don’t you hate it when companies hold pricing hostage for your information, or worse a high-pressure sales pitch in your home? At Smith Thompson Security we give you the home security system pricing up front, right over the phone. That way you know what to expect, and you don’t have to take off of work, or waste your time scheduling a visit with a high-pressure sales guy. You know the type, the ones that try and sell you a bunch of stuff you don’t really need.

Cheaper than DIY, and we actually install if for you.

We are the only home alarm company in Houston to offer smart home security and automation for just $29.95/mo. Even if you add video and cameras to your package. Most companies are charging in the range of $50-70 per month for the same service, and under a contract. The best part is we don’t just ship it to you in a box. We actually send you a professional technician to install, test, and demo it for you. Do you really want to spend your whole weekend messing with all of this? Let us 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.

In House Monitoring – 100% Texan

We don’t outsource your monitoring out of state, or worse out of country. People don’t realize most alarm companies are just a few sales people and technicians, and once the system is installed, they sell your account to a 3rd party monitoring center that handles millions of other customers, from thousands of different companies. Yikes. We own and operate our own private, 24/7, UL Listed and Approved, dispatch facility. Right here in Texas. To maintain our UL status, we voluntarily open ourselves to a yearly safety, disaster recovery plan, and systems audit. This requires maintaining dual uninterruptable power supplies, diesel generators, servers, redundant phone networks, and underground fully supervised utilities. Our entire building is access controlled, and under 24-hour surveillance. We have full quality control over our service. We install it, we service it, we monitor it.

Don’t need all the bells & whistles?

Already have a system, and just want to use what’s already there? We can do that for $16.95/mo., and no contract. Smith Thompson Security can take over most common alarm systems by adding our cellular wireless transmitter for a small one-time cost. That way you aren’t paying to completely replace your existing alarm system. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
