wireless security camera system with microphone

Samsung's newest Dropcam competitor is the SmartCam HD Pro. At a price of $190 available in the UK for £160; not yet available in Australia, but converts to about AU$200, it's the slightly cheaper of the two IP cameras, and it comes with an app that's chock full of useful features. Though the SmartCam boasts 1080p resolution and a 128 degree field of view, we still give Dropcam an edge in terms of image quality. We also wish that the SmartCam integrated with other devices over Bluetooth, like Dropcam does. That said, the SmartCam does give you the option of storing footage locally on an SD card Dropcam doesn't. Read our full review of the Samsung SmartCam HD Pro. With three stylish looking finishes to choose from, the independently crowdfunded Scout gets my vote for the best looking DIY security kit currently available, but it also stands out for its affordable a la carte approach to securing your home. You'll start with the $100 base station, then add whatever peripheral accessories you want. Live in a studio apartment?Tack on a single, simple entry sensor for $30, and you're looking at a $128 small home security solution though I'd probably splurge on the larger, $70 entry sensor that doubles as an RFID panel and lets you arm and disarm the system using a keychain fob. If you're looking for a DIY security option that didn't come from the world of crowdfunding, you'll definitely want to take a look at SimpliSafe, winner of our Editor's Choice. With a variety of customizable, multi sensor packages to choose from that range in price from $230 to $520, SimpliSafe promises complete do it yourself coverage for any home.

However, the great downfall of DIY alarms is service and customer service. Most of these DIY companies don’t have the best customer service your mileage may vary because the entire company is run out of one brick and mortar building. They are not equipped to handle high volume calls. They employ subcontractors to do their field service work. These techs are usually low skilled but good enough to remove/replace DIY equipment that may be faulty. Oh Michelle, before you consider yourself a “security review expert” after just 6 years of being a FrontPoint “DIY” customer/employee I suggest you research the industry a tad more thoroughly. I have been an ADT Corporate customer for 15 years at several locations, including home and businesses throughout the country. You might want to note for your next “security review”, some actual facts. ADT is not just an authorized dealer driven company. They have corporate offices and corporate customers throughout the country and have been in business over 100+ years. You call it “old”, I call it experienced and reliable.
