Who are you looking at for monitoring on it?

By: Jonathan Fri, 10 May 2013 07:05:20 +0000 I can’t get ‘lifeshield’ to give me a quote for having an existing system. I bought an Ingrid system around 2008 or so and love it worked great. I moved to NYC and didn’t have a need. Now I do again and want to activate it but can’t. They will not give me any idea of how much it will be via email. They close at 4pm PST.

Even if though, I can’t seeing it being less than $30 a month and with a contract. You can buy a Honeywell LYNX Touch 5100 for about the same and actually own the equipment and choose who to monitor it. You can get monitoring over broadband for $5-10 a month! no contracts and yes that includes their app for smart phones. And works with cameras and everything LifeShield’s system does and more. I’m going to sell my system and get a Honeywell!

Fu*k Lifeshield!

By: JC Thu, 14 Jun 2012 20:16:53 +0000 My girlfriend and I have had a terrible experience with Life Shield. My girlfriend was actually the one who ordered it and she has told me that she went online and had actually searched for ADT, she entered her phone number in a site which was suppose to be ADT and they would call back. Well ADT didnt call back Life Shield did. They then went on to sell her a system which was completely wrong type for what we really needed. She was promised a 100% money back refund if she didnt like the system. Well needless to say that was not true, but we will get to that. I was obviously the one who opened the package and about to install it when i realized the equipment was not the right type, it was also going to need an ethernet cable run basically across the house for it to work. I decided that we would return it. I called the number and after a few minutes of being on hold i got to talk to some one who transfered me. This happened 3 more times and I was on hold for over 30 minutes (it honestly felt like a tactic being used to try to get me to give up and not return it). Upon reaching the right person, they repeatedly tried to get me to back out from returning it with ever thing they could think up. I was repeatedly told that they were just technicians who had nothing to do with sales but thats not what it felt like. I also had to get my girlfriend to call so that they could speak to me, which was fine but when she called they told her “since I have you let me talk to you on why you shouldnt return it”. I had made it quite clear to them that we were going to return it and they were just trying to prey on her. Finally I was told there would be a $50 restocking fee and shipping would not be covered. I had expected this but not thats not what they told her when she originally purchased it. Once they got it in their heads I was not going to back down, it was a very quick process, in about 30 seconds total I was told you will get instructions by email and to follow those, then they hung up. I never write reviews or anything but this service and company is just sketchy. Please take my advice and stay away! I don’t think I have ever had such a bad customer service experience. They also clearly go online and write good reviews for themselves. Say no to Life Shield…

How’s the system holding up? Just wanted to finally get on here and personally thank you for publishing these great reviews and helpful videos. Love the Q&A built in to the Comments section here.

I think they feel they’d rather let you buy more than try to sell people with smaller homes/apartments MORE than they need.
You could always just cover your doors + put in a motion sensor or 2… or glass break sensors. Both of those are around $100 but they can cover a fairly large area.
Maybe you don’t need to cover those actual windows with a motion sensor, but instead cover a hallway that they would definitely need to enter in order to get to the rest of the house? I don’t know how your house is laid out, but ask yourself if you were a thief: would you bust that window, enter the room, steal stuff from that room, and then leave without exploring the rest of the house? Perhaps the answer is yes, and you need a bunch of window sensors…but if not, you might save a few $$ with a motion sensor.
I’ve set up quite a few people with systems (and I’m working on another right now) and we’re all still happy with our systems. The smartphone app has progressed nicely and I use it quite a bit.
Also, to answer your question about the free camera: yes, I believe you will still get a free camera if you use the referral link. By using that link, it should pass on the information they need to know where the referral came from.

By: Chris Wed, 18 Jan 2012 02:22:11 +0000 Hi Jeremy…

Thank you for your review. I am looking for a security system, but, cannot afford one of the expensive done by an installer, etc.

I have a few questions for you…

The “kit” offered when I phoned LifeShield includes three door sensors. It hardly seems enough. However, the salesperson I talked to at LifeShield said that they consider monitoring the doors sufficient. I have three doors and eight windows that you cannot see clearly from the road. Additional sensors were around $27.00 each. Seems to me that that is where they are making their money…any thoughts?

Is a camera still available by ordering from your link?

I presume that if I contact them from your link it tells them you referred me as I see nothing about when I open it up…or maybe I am not looking close enough.

Any other up to date opinions or thoughts on LifeShield?

Thank you,


By: Josh Mon, 11 Jul 2011 23:35:22 +0000 I was wondering, has anyone sold their system to someone else? I lived off campus for the past year and used a lifeshield system and once I move out I dont need it anymore so I am cancelling the service and hopefully going to sell the system to someone else so they can use it! Thanks!

By: jeremy Wed, 25 May 2011 20:01:50 +0000 Yeah, it walks you through the process of picking the appropriate call centers for your physical location when you register the system on their website. I don’t know much about what is *actually* happening in this process, tho, so you might want to call lifeshield and ask if you are looking for a more specific answer.

By: brian Wed, 25 May 2011 04:08:04 +0000 With the recent break-ins and stabbings in the town in which I live……I am anxious now to get a home security system installed. The Lifeshield website doesn’t mention the setup of registering the security system with the local police department. Does the lifeshield support take care of making the arrangements? I like to know the process… i know that Lifeshield only requires a 1 year contract for monitoring service (which uses the Guardian monitoring center)…which is very attractive to and not having so sigh up for multi-year contract ..unlike other companies e.g., ADT, Guardian which require a 3 year contract. Please elaborate on your experience with Lifeshield.

Please advise…Thanks.

By: O Fri, 13 May 2011 01:07:27 +0000 I was able to order the lifeshield homekit (not the free 30 day trial) with the upfront cost for $299 for only $124 using the below codes. They let you combine codes. Posting this on blogs I came across while researching lifeshield. Just saying thanks and I hope this helps someone.

By: jeremy Wed, 04 May 2011 19:24:20 +0000 I’d set the basement sensors for “stay” arming and ALL sensors for “away” arming. Then you could arm it “stay” at any time. I’d agree that the middle floor would be best for the console, but there are a lot of variables involved, such as wall thickness. Luckily, you don’t have to mount it permanently… you can try it in different areas and see where it works best, then mount it when you are sure.

By: Brian Wed, 04 May 2011 16:21:58 +0000 Hi,

I’m thinking of getting the Lifeshield system for my mom’s house… it’s a 3 level home…the vulnerable area that we want to secure is basement sliding glass doors and windows. My question is …Will the system allow you to just arm the basement area so you can be on the top two floors of the home? And were the best place to put the console…I was thinking of the middle floor. The router fot the system to connect to is currently near the computer system setup located in the basement. Your reply is appreciated. Thanks.

By: jeremy Sun, 01 May 2011 16:45:34 +0000 Sounds like you got some bad equipment. I’ve never had any of these problems, nor have any of the people I know who have the system. I hope they take care of it for you.

By: CJ Sun, 01 May 2011 12:58:35 +0000 Life Shield (LifeShield) is NOT very good, actually it SUCKS. I got it installed and it’s only been 2 days and I’ve already been woken up 3 times because one sensor had a low battery alert (fixed it by call them resetting etc). The other two were because the grid “lost” the senors. I had to call and was told I need to delete and re-add the sensors. I deleted but its not finding the sensor when I try to re-add so need to call them again.

By: jeremy Thu, 07 Apr 2011 19:11:04 +0000 Still happy with it and I’m not sure what length the warranty is… might be listed on their web site. The equipment, for the most part, is their own brand. There are some add-on modules that are made by Honeywell.
