For some, choosing a smart home security system may seem overwhelming in the beginning. Maybe it sounds expensive or the tech seems too complicated. Maybe the thought of scheduling someone to install it evokes waves of anxiety thinking about the logistics of it all. Fortunately, the latest advancements in home security solutions from abode go above and beyond overcoming those obstacles. Before you choose a smart home security system, take a moment to educate yourself with these helpful tips to eliminate the stress, and make the selection process fun:

It is affordable.

Plans from abode start at $0 and only go up to $30/month. A la carte devices cost as low as $20. Usage of the abode iOS or Android mobile app, which enables remote access to your system, is always free. And if that isn’t enough, many homeowner’s insurance providers are now offering discounts when you have a security device installed in your home.

Coverage is flexible.

If you don’t need 24/7 professional monitoring, you don’t have to pay for it. If you only want professional monitoring when you’re on vacation, you can activate coverage for a few days or weeks. Our smart home security solutions are designed to be flexible because we understand that different homes have different security needs. You can choose the plan and devices that fit your space at any moment in time with the flexibility to adjust your plan as needed.

You aren’t locked in.

abode doesn’t require a contract. You can start, stop, or change your home security plan at any time. If you move, abode can move with you, hassle-free.

You can DIY.

All of the devices from abode are designed to be easily installed by you. Everything is wireless, with the exception of the Gateway Hub, which just needs to be plugged into your router. This gives you the freedom to place motion sensors, cameras, door alarms and more wherever you need them. Once your devices are placed, you can activate them with your smartphone and have your system up and running in no time. And if you have any trouble, the abode support team is just a phone call away!

Smart home security solutions don’t have to be daunting. Finding a solution from abode that works for you is easy and affordable. Choose your new system today!
