Goodbye Brinks

By | July 17, 2016

With Brinks no longer around, where should people look to for their home security needs? Before we get into that, let me give you a brief overview on what happened to Brinks. Brinks Home Security, a home security company known for it’s amazing customer service, has been taken over by another home security giant, ADT. However, ADT’s services are not comparable to what Brinks once provided.

As an old company that’s been in the market for quite some time now, ADT is slow to catch up to market trends. In fact, there are now many savvier home security providers out there that not only provide a more advance security system but also better service. There have been many customer complaints launched against ADT.

Do-it-yourself home security companies are increasingly becoming popular as people are becoming more and more self-reliant and independent. ADT offers professional installation and that comes with not only activation costs but also the hassle of having to wait around nearly half the day for a technician to come and set up the system.

Armorax is a DIY home security company and their security package is called the Blackbox. The Blackbox has been designed to be user-friendly and the installation process is rather simple – takes roughly 20 minutes. For basic setup, all that’s required for you to do is to remove the control panel from the box and plug it in. Then, stick the door or window sensors and the motion sensor using the double-sided mounting tape provided. The Blackbox also comes with a stand for the control panel so there’s no need to mount it up on the wall (but you can if you want to, they also send screws).

The system is 100% wireless and cellular. It’s portable so you can take it with you wherever you go. The system also comes with a 24 hour backup battery which serves as backup in case of a power outage. It is also Z-Wave compatible and therefore expandable. Armorax has professional as well as self-monitoring services. They also offer video monitoring and home automation. They have both contract as well as no contract options.

Armorax has many things to offer and the possibilities are endless. They’re worth looking into it. Check them out on
