LifeShield Home Security customers can also choose to include LifeShield's patented fire protection system into their wireless home security package as well. The patented fire protection system is designed around a wireless fire safety sensor that works in conjunction with previously installed fire alarms. The LifeShield wireless fire safety sensor "listens" for the alarms that are emitted from more classical fire alarm monitors, and then sends an emergency signal to the LifeShield monitoring center to request emergency fire assistance.

LifeShield Home Security offers customers three types of home security system packages. The most basic is the Security Essentials package which has numerous features including four window and door sensors, one security touchpad, professional alarm monitoring and whole-home fire protection. The midline product is the Security Advantage package which includes all of the features in the Security Essentials package, in addition to one wireless high-definition security camera, 250 megabytes of video storage space, and a total of six window and door sensors.

The most-complete LifeShield security package is the Security Professional. In addition to all the features of the prior packages, the Professional package includes a total of two wireless cameras, 1 gigabyte of video storage space, and a total of eight door and window sensors.
