99View at Walmart$299View at Amazon?You can customize alerts and arm the system with a single tap on your smartphone. Scout Alarm uses your home's internet connection to keep you up to date on your home's security. If the power goes out, the battery backup means the system can still set off alarms if someone tries to break in. Scout's large and small starter kits on Amazon are a good way to get the starter devices you need for your system such as door panels, entry sensors and key fobs. One downside to Scout Alarm is that you must pay a monthly fee $9. 99 to use the system, but this fee pays for built in cellular backup, which is often more expensive with other DIY home security systems. There's no contract so you can cancel service if you don't need it. You can also upgrade a Scout Alarm system to include professional monitoring $19. 99/month, so you can get extra protection when you're unable to monitor your home yourself. This system is the easiest to install as it walks you through every step of the setup process in the mobile app, taking about 10 minutes to install. Scout Alarm works with the smart home platforms from Amazon, Nest and IFTTT.

security systems for house

And now I'm getting phone calls from the "manager" from India wanting me to change all the batteries in the sensors to see if that's the trouble before the tech comes out to re program everything a 3rd time. I cussed him out and dared him to call me again. I want my money back!DO NOT GET THIS SYSTEM!Completely unreliable security system and the mobile app sucks. I travel for work on a weekly basis and thought having a home security system will allow me to monitor my condo. Every time when I'm away, I always get this communication failure alert triggered by the door or window sensor. The first time I received the text alert, I thought someone break into my condo because the text doesn't say it's a communication failure. Instead it says alarm has been triggered and the security center has been notified. I was waiting for someone to contact me but it never happened. So I logged onto the app and found out it's a communication failure triggered by one of the sensors. I tried to disarm or reset using the app, it wouldn't let me and kept getting message that says cannot be reset due to the communication failure. I figured out how to reset it but I have to be home to do it using the console.

As you can see, the plans are reasonably priced and give you discounts for up to 5 cameras. With the premium package, you’ll also be able to create motion zones, which tell the camera areas that are particularly important to look out for. If you have a house with multiple floors or a baby’s room, this feature is going to come in handy. Plus, you can take advantage of the yearly package because you know you’re not going anywhere. At only $2. 98 per month per camera if you pay for the entire year at once, the Premium package makes the camera an even better value.
