Crime Prevention Security Systems Overview

cpss-logoCrime Prevention Security Systems is a locally-owned and operated residential and commercial security company that services the Orlando, Gainesville, and Ocala areas in central Florida. They offer monthly security monitoring services, home automation, and video surveillance and access control systems for both home and business, all backed by a company with over 35-years experience in the industry. They have been ranked one of the top 100 security system companies in the country by SDM Magazine, but they are not currently accredited with or rated by the Better Business Bureau. CPSS services homes and businesses exclusively throughout central and northern Florida with security packages and monitoring, in addition to offering a variety of custom home entertainment systems and other offerings like backup generators and central vacuum.

Crime Prevention Security Systems Reviews


One of the biggest positives to choosing Crime Prevention Security Systems is their affordability, both at time of start-up and continually throughout the length of your contract. Florida customers appreciate that CPSS is locally owned and operated, meaning that everything from installation to activation to maintenance is only a phone-call and short service time away. Several customer testimonials online cite having been with CPSS for many years, as monthly monitoring costs never increase and customer service is top-notch. Additionally, though CPSS is a Florida-based company, they can transfer service anytime you move free of charge, even if you move out of state. Unfortunately, even CPSS’s most premium security package is relatively basic when compared to the offerings of competitor companies, meaning many customers are inclined to upgrade their system with additional components, thus raising the cost of service. But as mentioned, once you have your system components chosen and installed, CPSS will not raise the cost of your service so your monthly bill will not change unexpectedly, a dreaded feature among some other companies. CPSS packages do require a 36-month contract commitment that in the even of cancellation requires you to pay the full remaining balance.

Crime Prevention Security Systems Equipment

CPSS advertises three levels of security packages on the homepage of their website. Most of their packages include a digital keypad, door/window entry sensors, interior and exterior motion sensors, system tampering sensors, yard signs, fire and smoke detectors, and 24/7 monitoring via a hardwired or wireless system, depending on which package you choose. If not already included in your package of choice, customers can upgrade with home automation and remote control functionality, interior and exterior video surveillance, color touchscreen control panels, key fobs, CO detectors, heat alarms, glass break sensors, infrared cameras, and air conditioning/heat pump alarms. Home automation features include thermostat control, light control, lock access control, and the ability to manage every aspect of your system from anywhere with a computer. They also offer medical emergency equipment like LifeControl pendants, VoiceLink two-way voice service, and non-intrusive wellness systems.
