security systems reviews

Read the full reviewBest User ExperienceAbode$279 View at AmazonCheck Walmart?Most user friendly system we testedStrong smart home compatibilityEasy to installMost expensive professional monitoring feeCellular backup requires additional feeOne year warrantyThe thing we liked most about abode is that it's more user friendly than other DIY home security systems we tested. You can set up different modes such as home, vacation and away and specify which devices are active in each mode. There's no monthly fee for self monitoring, but you pay extra if you want cellular backup and security camera backup $10 for your system. You can also get monthly professional home monitoring $30, which includes the backup features mentioned above. One of the best things about abode is you can buy the amount of professional monitoring you need on a monthly, weekly or even a three day basis. This is particularly convenient when you can't monitor the system on your own during vacations.

Some systems store recorded video locally on an SD card or a solid state drive, while others offer cloud storage. Locally stored video is a good choice for do it yourselfers on a budget, but you have to be careful not to overwrite video you may need later. Cloud storage makes it easy to store and access recorded video, but it can cost hundreds of dollars per year depending on your subscription. Some systems offer both cloud storage and local storage, and some provide a dedicated storage drive that gives you DVR capabilities with time lapse recording, which makes it easy to find a video event that took place at a specific point in time. All of the systems we've tested feature an app that lets you use your smartphone as your command center to arm and disarm the system, create rules, add and delete components, and receive push notifications when alarms are triggered. Most apps also allow you to do things like view live and recorded video, lock and unlock doors, change thermostat settings, and silence alarms. Some apps will even use your phone's location services to automatically arm and disarm the system according to your physical location. The more expensive systems usually come with a wall mounted panel that acts as a communications hub, with a touch screen display that allows you to do everything the app does. The display lets you communicate with a professional monitoring service when an alarm is triggered and view video from any of the installed security cameras. While many systems use wireless components that are installed using double sided tape, some high end systems use components that require professional installation. These soup to nuts systems typically cost considerably more than DIY systems and offer 24/7 professional monitoring, but you may have to enter into a multi year contract and pay a hefty termination fee if you break it.
