GetSafe - Reviewed & Compared

Summary

Get Safe is a newer security company that has a very modern feel. Not just in the equipment they offer, but in their demeanor and online presence. Let's just say they definitely aren't "old school". But does this upstart have what it takes to make a dent in the industry? Let's find out.

The Good

Get Safe is a company that embraces a DIY spirit. They offer a wireless security system that has most of the popular components you'd want, with the price advantage of simple DIY installation.

Their DIY mentality also extends to monitoring, where they offer a "self-monitoring" option for folks who don't want to have a central station handle the monitoring. They also offer both contract and contract-less options, so, in true 21st century fashion, you are not locked in if you don't want to be. That's always good.

The Bad

Well, I get a very millennial vibe from their website wording and presentation. Not really what I'm after when looking for home security. I also found no carbon monoxide detector option, which most other companies have. I can't find a BBB rating either, and lastly, their self-monitoring price seems a little high for my taste.
