home security best

In our experience, the best DIY home security systems have many ways to arm and disarm so you don't always need your smartphone. They also let you use a keypad or key fob to accomplish the same goal. We look at activity feeds and the organization of the mobile app to see what information an app gives you when an alarm goes off and if the alert gives you instant info. The top performers in this test were abode and Scout Alarm, with Nest Secure and SimpliSafe tying for third place. During installation tests, we make sure the manual or mobile app can get you through the setup process without contacting the company. We also look at whether the equipment in each system's starter kit requires additional tools such as screwdrivers and batteries. Finally, we time how long it takes to set up each component. We found Scout Alarm, SimpliSafe and abode easier to set up than most other DIY security systems. How much do DIY security systems cost?There are three costs you can expect with most DIY security systems: equipment, access fees and professional security monitoring. You can expect to spend an average of $250 on equipment, though this goes up as you buy more sensors. Access fees are sometimes required to unlock all or part of a system's self monitoring features for about $10 a month.

Defenders, which was founded by husband and wife Dave and Jessica Lindsey in 1998, has grown at a 20 percent annual rate the past two years, with revenue projected to exceed $600 million this year. And with security systems in only 22 percent of U. S. households and home automation technology taking off, Defenders CEO Jim Boyce is confident there is still plenty of room for growth. “This is a great, great business,” Boyce told IBJ. “There are tons of innovations going on within this industry and that’s going to push growth. ”But the potential has spawned a plethora of new competitors, from cable television providers such as Comcast, to telephone companies including ATandT and Verizon, and the latest—internet retail behemoth Amazon.
