1. Where can I buy new/additional equipment?
2. Where do I find instructions on adding additional components to my LifeShield system?
Once you have your system set up, you may find you’re interested in expanding it. You may refer to the instructions in the device guide provided inside each individual product box, review this Setup Guide or refer to www.lifeshield.com/support-center.
3. Do I have to purchase service with my LifeShield system?
Yes. The LifeShield system will not operate without monitoring service. LifeShield offers several service plans.
4. How do I cancel service?
Service may be cancelled by calling LifeShield Support at 1-877-464-7437. Service may not be cancelled via email.
5. Is there an early termination fee if I cancel service?
Your agreement terms are set at the time of purchase. There will be a termination fee for early cancellation with the 36-month contract agreement. There is no early termination fee for agreements on month to month terms.
6. Do I have to have a landline phone to use LifeShield?
No; telephone lines are optional. If you decide to use a telephone line as additional backup protection, you need to change a system setting in the Security Portal, so the system understands a phone line is being used. LifeShield recommends a telephone line for redundant backup communications to the monitoring center in case there’s ever an interruption to your broadband connection.
7. What if there is no telephone line near my broadband connection?
The LifeShield system can be connected to the telephone line from the Base or Console. Therefore, having a telephone line near your broadband connection is not required.
8. Will LifeShield cause interference with other RF products like my wireless network (Wi-Fi)?
LifeShield uses advanced radio frequency technology to avoid interference with other devices.

11. Are there special licenses needed to install a security system?
