home security protection

 

home alarm systems wireless

The alarms from the Frontpoint control panel reach their monitoring center over a secure cellular network. Installing the Frontpoint home security system is very easy. You may have heard horror stories about other home security systems, where a technician has to visit the home, drill holes in the walls, and hard wire the system. Frontpoint heard these stories too so they developed a pre programmed, out of the box, do it yourself solution that you can set up in as little as 30 minutes. The Frontpointhomesecurity components connect instantly to their Control Panel over a wireless frequency, which makes installation a snap. The Control Panel signals the monitoring station using its built in cellular device, so there is no need for a connection with the home landline or internet cable.

Access fees are sometimes required to unlock all or part of a system's self monitoring features for about $10 a month. With regards to professional monitoring, you can expect to pay between $15 and $30 a month for the service, which generally covers any access fees as well. This is lower than the $37 average on traditional security systems and doesn't require a contract; not all DIY security systems have professional monitoring. What equipment should you get?Begin with a starter kit that covers your basic DIY home security needs such as the number of motion detectors and entry sensors for your home's size. From there, you can choose other devices to enhance the surveillance around your home. Most of the systems we tested sell add ons to boost your security beyond the basics. The most useful add ons are third party smart home devices. Scout Alarm, abode, SimpliSafe, SwannOne, Wink and Iris by Lowe's can all integrate with Nest, which means you can set up your home security system to work with other Nest products such as a security camera. Half of the systems we tested can also use If This Then That IFTTT, a free internet based automation service that helps DIY security systems and third party smart home devices work together. Of course IFTTT goes beyond smart home tasks, but we're unsure if linking your security system to financial services and restaurants has any material benefits at this time. Very few systems offer smoke detectors as an add on, and in the case of home8alarm, it uses a fireman device to send alerts when your smoke detectors go off.

99View at Amazon?Kasa's lower cost outdoor security camera is a good deal if you don't mind a few tradeoffs. Daytime 1080p video from this camera was excellent, but nighttime video was less defined; it was hard to make out people's faces. The camera is weather resistant, but the connection between its cable and power supply is not. We also liked that its app lets you set up custom motion zones. In addition, you get free rolling two day cloud storage, and a 14 day plan that's a very reasonable $40 per year.

It can distinguish between people and animals, and can even recognize individual faces. However, a lot of the features are available only with a Nest Aware subscription, which starts at $10/month, or $100/year. Read our full Nest Cam IQ Outdoor review. 32 View at The Home Depot$37.
