home alarm system
If any activity triggers the alarm, a professional will attempt to contact you and alert emergency responders to your home. The cost of professional monitoring may range from $10/mo. up to $50/mo. Depending on the home security plan and provider, you can opt for monitoring through cellular, broadband, or landline connection. Every home is different, and so is every homeowner’s security needs. Like most technical services, you can pay for professionals to craft your home security system or you can take matters into your own hands. DIY home security means you customize
your device kit, self install, and then monitor alerts from your sensors and video feed. Self monitoring is the common difference between DIY and traditional security, but there are plenty of companies that strike a happy medium between both. We looked at providers
offering pure DIY as well as those offering professional monitoring, either de facto or as an upgrade. We required all systems to have Z Wave Support — the most universal mesh network for communicating appliance to appliance. One of the biggest draws of a DIY system is the opportunity to add in third party equipment like Philips Hue lights or a Nest Thermostat at any point.
