Home Security: Do It Yourself or Leave It to the Pros?

In the burgeoning home automation and security market, it’s become increasingly difficult to weigh your options thanks to information and feature overload. Aside from the technical jargon, variability of home security situations, and features galore, one of the biggest questions facing most home security consumers is this: do it yourself or leave it to the pros? Lucky for you, abode offers you the best of both worlds.

Installation is Inexpensive and Unobtrusive

One of the biggest drawbacks to some professional home security services is the cost of installation.
