security alarms systems

If you live in a small apartment and want to keep tabs on things when you're not home, a security camera can get the job done for a lot less money than what you'll pay for a full security system. Nearly all standalone security cameras connect to your home's Wi Fi so you can see what's going on from your phone or tablet, and most have built in sensors that detect motion and sound and will send push and email notifications when those sensors are triggered. You can usually tweak the camera's motion sensitivity to prevent false alarms due to pet activity or passing cars if the camera is near a window, and you can create a schedule that turns the sensors on and off during certain hours of the day. A smart lock is typically part of a robust smart home security setup, but you don't have to invest in a full blown system to use one. If you're using a home automation hub to control things like lighting and thermostats, you can add a Z Wave or Zigbee smart lock to the system without much effort. Alternately, if you don't have a home automation hub, look for a Wi Fi or Bluetooth lock that comes with its own mobile app.

Monthly plans are often less expensive than wired home security systems, but there are drawbacks to consider. Choose a DIY home security system if you want to save a little more, have more freedom with equipment placement and easier transport when moving. With a DIY security system, you won’t have to pay an installation fee, which allows you to save a little more. These systems also don’t tend to cost as much as the professionally monitored systems. A DIY security system also gives you more flexibility with the placement of equipment in your home.
