The 10 Best Home Security Companies in Houston, TX

There's no question that Houston has a crime problem. Though Houston is the fourth largest city in the United States, it is ranked third in the nation for its number of property crimes with 107,678 per year. That puts Houston property crime just behind Chicago's 112,466 property crimes and well ahead of the 87,478 property crimes in Los Angeles.

The good news is that crime statistics show that Houston crime is declining, particularly in murders, robberies, and auto thefts. The bad news is that although burglaries are declining in Houston, it's only by just a slight margin. And in a city with some of the biggest numbers for property crimes, that means Houstonians shouldn't be complacent about security.

In a city with the potential for burglary like Houston's, it's essential that you protect your home with a trusted home security company. Using experienced expert security system designers and installers, you can rest easy with a security solution that protects your family and your home with around the clock monitoring, alarm, and surveillance.

We've found the 10 best security companies in Houston, and have listed them here. From these companies, you'll find custom solutions for your home security with expert service.
