security monitoring system

to keep you up to date on your home's security. If the power goes out, the battery backup means the system can still set off alarms if someone tries to break in. Scout's large and small starter kits on Amazon are a good way to get the starter devices you need for your system such as door panels, entry sensors and key fobs. One downside to Scout Alarm is that you must pay a monthly fee $9. 99 to use the system, but this fee pays for built in cellular backup, which is often more expensive
with other DIY home security systems. There's no contract so you can cancel service if you don't need it. You can also upgrade a Scout Alarm system to include professional monitoring $19. 99/month, so you can get extra protection when you're unable to monitor your home yourself. This system is the easiest to install as it walks you through every step of the setup process in the mobile app, taking about 10 minutes to install. Scout Alarm works with the smart home platforms from Amazon, Nest and IFTTT.
