LiveWatch Packages and Equipment Costs

We’ve found that LiveWatch is one of the top-rated home security systems around in terms of the quality they produce, ease of use and installation, and their ASAPer communication alert feature. For buyers, you don’t have to call and speak to a representative to get started in the purchasing process either. You can visit the LiveWatch website and purchase your entire plan directly.

When you first sign on with them, you’ll begin by selecting the type of monitoring level you want. From there, you then choose between a newer basic touchscreen control panel (Simon XTi 1.0) or a more advanced touch screen control panel (IQ 2.0) for your system. For some monitoring plans, like the ones with home automation and video surveillance, the advanced IQ touch screen panel is necessary. Then once you select your preferred equipment package, you can then choose which additional sensors and equipment you need to completely secure your home.

LiveWatch will take your order and configure everything on their end so that when they ship it and you receive your customized system, it’s ready to be synced up and installed right out of the box. You’ll be monitoring your home in no time as soon as your system arrives.

LiveWatch Equipment Pricing Breakdown

For each package, excluding the Basic Monitoring plan, LiveWatch includes the following:

  • Two door sensors
  • One motion sensor
  • Two yard signs
  • Six window stickers
  • A free keychain remote

That’s a good start, but you’ll find that as you purchase additional sensors and equipment individually, the costs can add up and total to be slightly higher than our other top security company choices – Frontpoint and Link Interactive. However, keep in mind that despite the additional cost of investment, the overall quality of the products are worth it. In addition, each item is easy to install with hardly any additional configuration needed.

LiveWatch Equipment Breakdown

LiveWatch especially sets itself apart by offering ASAPer communication to all customers, regardless of their package. This emergency response system is 10x faster than anything else available on the market today and allows for immediate notice to all parties.

Read our full overview of how ASAPer works with LiveWatch.

 

LiveWatch Control Panels

The control panel selection for LiveWatch has recently changed. It’s tossed out the outdated Simon XT keypad for a more innovative Simon XTi 1.0 talking touch screen control panel, but still maintains a low cost. The more advanced IQ 2.0 touch screen panel is similar to that of Frontpoint’s touch screen panel, except they’re bundled in your security package at nearly half the cost. If you find you need an additional keypad for your already included control panel (ideal for larger homes), adding an additional keypad won’t break the bank.

Simon XTi 1.0 Talking Touch Screen

To replace the original Simon XT keypad control panel, the new Simon XTi supports a touchscreen interface with two-way voice control. It also has quick buttons to allow for instant emergency contact. Comes included in your initial equipment package at $99

IQ 2.0 Touch Screen
