Amazon Marketing Pro Installs of Amazon Security Systems

By Dan Gelinas, Published Apr 25, 2019, 09:47am EDT

Is Amazon a threat to conventional providers like ADT, Vivint and Brinks Home Security? Many say no.

Now, Amazon is advertising free in-home consultation plus security systems "professionally installed by Amazon Experts.'

We investigated the offering to see how Amazon's security threat level has been evolving. Inside this note, based on our own research, we look at the following:

  • How Amazon is getting past the "DIY" label and into the end user's home
  • How the free consultation went
  • Why in-home consultation is available in some areas, but not others
  • How installation is handled in areas without Amazon
  • Outlook
