Although LifeShield can provide an effective security solution to keep your home safe, it still can’t make your home smart like most of the home security systems available in the market today.  It also has a several customer concerns since the name change. If you are to look it up and in the time this review is written, LifeShield has no rating in the Better Business Bureau as the company is reported to be “responding to previously closed complaints”.

As for cancellations and returns, LifeShield requires that you follow a specific process.

1. First, you have to call LifeShield to request for a Return Material Authorization number. It has to be within 7 days.

2. After you receive the number, you will have to send all or some of the products back to the company within 21 days. They must be in good conditions as well.

3. After LifeShield receives the equipment, it will return your money within 14 days and credit them to your original purchasing card.

4. If you fail to return the equipments, they shall charge you with a Non-Return Fee. Just to give you an idea, it costs $400 for a system with a camera and $200 if your system does not include one.

5. You must keep in mind, however, that LifeShield is strict with its policy that no return shall be accepted without an RMA number.

            What if your contract ended?

The contract automatically renews based on your previous agreement. Say for example, you signed for a 36 month deal, your contract then automatically renews by that same 36 month long agreement. However, if you decide  to cut the ties, you should notify them 60 days prior to the expiration of your contract.

LifeShield also collects an Early Termination Fee should you decide to quit prior to your contract’s end. If you are on a 36 month agreement, $15 shall be multiplied by the remaining months you have in your contract.
