Brinks Home is Not
TrustPilot TrustScore 3.7 Stars
TrustPilot Customer Reviews 3.98 Stars
App Store Rating 4.7 Stars
Google Play Rating 3.1 Stars
Brinks Home scores 3.7 stars on TrustPilot, which is the same as Link Interactive. As with them, failing to earn at least 4 stars, and their average customer review of 3.98 stars, earns them a “Not Recommended.”
Their home security app received 4.7 stars on the App Store, which could have put them in the running for Best Home Security App, but a paltry 3.1 on Google Play is unacceptable.

What’s the significance of the TrustPilot TrustScore? We write more about how and why we use it in our methodology here, but in a nutshell, we can’t find another system for collecting and verifying customer reviews with a system as clear and reliable as TrustPilot’s. In fact, TrustPilot removed over 2.2 million fake reviews from their platform in 2020 alone. They’ve bet their business on quality, authentic reviews.
Brinks Home Customer Reviews
3,837 customer reviews is on the lower end in this competition. Because of TrustPilot’s commitment to weeding out fraudulent reviews, we can still look at them with significant confidence.
This is how those reviews are broken down:
65.5% 5 Stars
2,514 out of 3,837 Reviews
8.3% 4 Stars
318 out of 3,837 Reviews
4.1% 3 Stars
157 out of 3,837 Reviews
3.1% 2 Stars
120 out of 3,837 Reviews
19% 1 Star
728 out of 3,837 Reviews
Projecting those reviews forward, a customer could face a greater than 1-in-5 chance of having a 1 or 2 star experience. And as we’ve stated, we cannot recommend a company with fewer than four stars in either the TrustPilot Trust Score or review average. Brinks Home missed the threshold in both.
