Protect your home and family and get the ultimate peace of mind.

Only LifeShield from DIRECTV offers what other companies can’t - the fastest response time in the industry paired with unbeatable reliability.

When seconds count, the clear choice is LifeShield. Help gets to you when you need it most.

LifeShield has one of the fastest response times in the industry because our security base is connected to the monitoring station with broadband internet. Typical security systems use only a phone line or cellular signals to connect with the monitoring center. With LifeShield, when an alarm is triggered, the monitoring center is notified within milliseconds – saving you valuable time so that help gets to you faster.

Help arrives whether you are home or not

Our patented wireless Fire Safety Sensor works with your existing smoke detectors by "listening" for an alarm. When there is smoke or a fire in your home, and the alarm sounds, the Fire Safety Sensor immediately sends a signal for help to the central monitoring station. Free professional fire monitoring is included with all home security packages that feature the Fire Safety Sensor.

No other alarm company offers this type of comprehensive fire protection with no fee for the equipment and no fee for fire monitoring!
