About SecurityNerd

When our founder, Kristen, purchased her very first home with her husband, she found herself confronted with lots of new concerns, including whether or not to buy a home security system. Not knowing much about home security, she ended up making a hasty — and expensive — decision. After talking to friends and colleagues, she realized that she wasn’t the only one who felt completely overwhelmed and confused by the often contradicting information available online about home security.

So she decided to do something about it.

We launched SecurityNerd because we want consumers to feel empowered in making their own decisions about their home security and we want them to do it without overpaying for it. Shopping for a home security system doesn’t need to be complicated or intimidating and you — not a salesperson — should be the one calling the shots. There’s no reason why you have to spend a ton of money just to keep your family safe. All you need is the right information. We made it our mission to simplify shopping for home security and we’re here to provide the clear, honest and accurate information that you need to make your own choices wisely and with confidence.
