More than Flexibility: Link Home Security System Review

Don’t talk to strangers. Better yet, don’t let strangers in. Check out the official purchasing page (or speak to a friendly rep at 1-866-302-6140).

Apparently, Link Home Security System has learned childhood lessons well. It doesn’t allow strangers inside your home to install your security system for you. Instead, it makes installation as Do-It-Yourself installations.
