Abode's DIY security system has an option for every home
For $299, the Abode starter kit includes a siren-equipped [UNKNOWN] hub, a battery-powered camera and motion detector, two door window sensors and a key fob.
You can also add accessories like live streaming kits.
And cameras, environmental sensors, water leak sensors, garage door openers, and more al a carte.
That's what I like most about this system.
You can start simply and scale up as needed.
Not only do you have a lot of hardware options, there are also a variety of monitoring services available.
The default service is free and self-monitored.
Set your system to auto arm and disarm or control it manually in the Abode app.
Abode also works with Alexa [UNKNOWN] and Nest for all sorts of custom automations.
When you say Alexa tell Abode I'm leaving, the system will begin to arm itself.
And you can create an entral that when you open your front door you entry way lights turn on.
Three and seven day temporary professional monitoring is available if you are way on vacation or you can pay a recurring $10 monthly fee for cellular back up or $30 per month for professional monitoring.
And cellular backup.
Whatever you want, the options are there, and the Abode app, along with its related alerts, make the whole process incredibly easy.
