OPLink Security Review

Looking for a DIY Home security system that makes your life a lot easier? OPLink Security offers a revolutionary new system that allows users to take total control over their home security. With plug-and-play wireless home protection, homeowners can easily install a monitoring system at prices starting as low as $9.99/month. For a completely out-of-the-box home security system, OPLink Security is the company to consider.


Instead of offering a traditional home security system, OPLink Security offers a system that homeowners can easily install and activate on their own. The wireless systems are designed to be installed by the user in just 15 minutes, connect to your home Wi-Fi or telephone service provider, and configure itself automatically. Once the equipment has been set up, the control panel will detect each sensor and camera. Any time you want to add more, the system will automatically pick up the new signal and add it to the home monitoring system.

OPLink uses its own proprietary equipment, which can be found on Amazon, NewEgg, the Microsoft Web Store, Fry’s Electronics, Wal-Mart, SmartHome, and Home Controls. There is no need to deal with technicians, but the equipment is easily installed. Should any issues arise, customer support is available around the clock. The equipment is designed to be as user-friendly as possible, so it’s ideal for those who have a hard time learning new electronics.

Monitoring and Services

With OPLink, there is absolutely no outside monitoring. Your home security system is connected directly to your smartphone, tablet, or PC, and you receive instant notifications should anything trigger an alarm in the house. This means that you must contact emergency services yourself, but you have total control over your home security. No matter where you are or what you’re doing, you can immediately access your home security system from any of the mobile devices where the app is installed.

The basic package is the AlarmShield, which comes with the intelligent control panel, two door and window sensors, a motion detector, a siren, and two keychain remotes to switch the system on and off. Upgrading to the TripleShield package includes between 2 and 4 video cameras, which are immediately wirelessly connected to the control panel. Using the intuitive interface of the app and the central touchscreen panel is easy, even for tech-challenged users. Up to 5 different users can connect via the app, and it can be installed on as many tablets and smartphones as you want. It is available via both iTunes and Google Play, so it works for pretty much any device.

OPLink has an A+ rating with the BBB for customer service, meaning all complaints have been resolved to the satisfaction of their customers. It has received excellent reviews from tech sites like CNET, and homeowners who have tried it have stated that they are more than pleased with the security systems.


The cost of the basic home security system starts at $149.95, but adding 2 cameras increases the price to $299.95. For a complete system, the cost of the equipment goes up to $349.99. The fee for the AlarmShield package is $9.99/month, while the TripleShield package costs $19.99/month for 2 cameras or $29.99/month for 4 cameras.
