    Great DIY security system

    |
    Posted .

    Great product. Company is fairly young but I think they have a lot of potential. I was looking for a quick install camera system at Best Buy and found this whole alarm system with 720p camera for just a little more in price than some systems with only a camera. I wish this product came with a touchpad for the home. I like the convienence of arming and disarming with my phone and remote camera monitoring but a fixed touch pad in my house would be a great addition. Setup was quick and easy under an hour. Siren can't be heard outside my home (110 db) but I was immediatley alerted via text, phone call, and email once the alarm went off during testing and that is exactly what I was looking for. No monthly fees with this setup. Night vision camera is descent indoors. I currently have the camera aimed outside which is good during the day but not so great at night since it must look through a two pane glass window. I plan to add a door sensor to my garage since you can check the status of open or closed anytime through the app on all sensors. I think we'll continue to see more advanced add-ons from this company in the future.

    Great DIY Security System! No regrets!

    If you would like piece of mind and your own home security system without the hassle and expense of a security service, then this is your best bet. I trust CNET's reviews and if they stand behind this, then so can I. The wife and I picked up the last box available from our local Best Buy and installed every component with ease. The most time taken was adjusting the camera location to view the most of our home interior. We have an open floor plan so that aspect helped a great deal. I have also pre-ordered the optional keypad and key fobs to arm and disarm the system without the app. You can customize the sensitivity of the sensors and camera recording options via the app and YOU WILL NEED TO. If you get frustrated with the constant notifications or calls/emails, just adjust the app settings. It will take about a week to figure out your configuration especially if you have a barking dog at home during the day while you are at work. Otherwise we love it! The door chimes are especially nice if you have a child. This will alert you if they have opened a door with a sensor attached. I don't know why I didn't pick this up sooner!!!!!!!

    Great system for the price.

    I have owned this system for almost two months and have had zero issues. Set up took less than 45 minutes from "out of the box" to a functional security system. I deliberately set off the system several times to see if the system worked as advertised. After a few seconds, I received a phone call and push notifications to alert me my system had been activated. The system works as advertised and is incredibly easy to use. The mobile app is very intuitive and was up in moments using my IPhone . One small issue I have encountered with the product and it is not a complaint but more of a suggestion for future releases of the product: increase the decibel level on the siren when the system is activated. It will also be helpful if a chime occurs when a door is closed, not only when it is opened. That is the one feature I miss from my former security system. Overall I cannot be more satisfied with this product.

    Great homeowner installed security system. Only negative thing I can say is the network seems to go down a bit more often then I would like.

    Gives me peace of mind

    I was having problems with my daughter sneaking out of the house and was putting my own health in jeopardy by setting an alarm for every hour during the night so I could check on her. I purchased the iSmart Alarm bundle in the hope that it would be my eyes and ears during the night. It came with 3 contacts, and I used one on the front door and one on the back. I found the 3rd one useful when she found a window to sneak out of. I already have a Canary covering the front entrance to my house, so the spot camera was set up on the back door. This is also useful for monitoring while I'm at work, as you can use the app to access the camera at any time. The wifi connection is only as good as your internet provider's wifi. The customer service from iSmartAlarm is good, though only available during "normal business hours". The app is easy to install, access, and use. I now have the peace of mind I was seeking, full nights of uninterrupted sleep, and my daughter is no longer sneaking out of the house in the early hours of the morning. The only "con" to this system is that it has to be hardwired into the modem, so if your modem is in a place where you may not be able to hear the alarm so well, you may want to get a REALLY long cord :)

    Very happy with this purchase

    Posted .

    After much research I decided the best fit for our needs was the iSmartAlarm system. I compared dozens of similar products but all seem to have a monthly service fee and those that had an optional service fee provided less features and capabilities without the monthly service fee. For our needs we simply did not need a "monitoring service" I'm fully capable of checking via camera what's going on and making the decision to involve the authorities myself. Installation was very simple. Peel and stick the door sensors and simple screw mount for the motion sensors. Within minutes my entire system was in place. Less than 30 minutes I had a fully functional monitoring system. Combined with IFTTT I am able to automate arming and disarming when we leave and arrive. For the money this system can't be beat.

    Simple security for a decent price.

    We use this in conjunction with an outdoor security camera system. We got it as our 10 year old would be staying home alone for the summer while we were away at work. Gave us piece of mind knowing no outside doors could be opened without us knowing and also we were able to check up on her through the cameras occasionally. It's a pretty basic setup but it gets the job done for a fair price. Recommend getting at least one extra camera for more home coverage. Setup was easy but seemed to have more steps than needed to pair everything and took a moderate amount of time.

    Nice mobile alarm system

    iSmart is very easy to use and so far connectivity has been great for both of our smartphones and iPads. Settings take place in just a couple seconds and alerts options are good. We monitor the doors all day and can set the alarm for guests even when we are out, away from home. The siren could be a bit louder but we are getting a second siren for the bedroom since the main one is too far away to hear. Very glad we got the system though.

    Setup was easy except for the area sensor. It has yet to be paired to the system. I did call tech support and they were very helpful when I needed assistance with the camera. Turned out that the power cord was defective and a replacement was sent right away. Overall happy with the system.

    Good System

    Installation was a piece of cake. System works well providing quick automated phone calls. One limitation is that it only calls one phone number so I recommend setting it to a free Google Voice number so you can call multiple lines at once. It is non-monitored in the sense that the police never get called, but my local PD takes their time for alarm calls (over an hour) anyway.

    What a steal

    Posted .

    I've done my homework and found this product by far and away is in its own category. An entire security system, PLUS a camera, and best of all, no fees, period. All for one price that's less than what'd I pay Vivent or ADT just to rent out their equipment for a couple months? I don't know how these guys do it. On top of that, it only took me less than 10 minutes to get this up and running. Just buy it, you won't regret it.

    Great for home security and peace of mind. Easy to install and operate. Very loud when alarm is triggered. The text, email, and phone calls for alarm triggers are prompt and great.

    Great Low-Cost Home Security

    I really like the iSmartAlarm but there are definitely improvements to be made. I love that the spot camera can detect motion and sound and send notifications based on that. I have not yet tested the ability to listen for smoke or carbon monoxide detector alarms. I had to mount my motion detectors upside down to avoid being triggered by my 25 pound dog, but it works fine now. The one thing that I cannot believe is not included is a arm/disarm keypad, which apparently they're coming out with this summer.

    I wanted money on a DIY X10 home security system that I couldn't get to work after 2 months of trying. This system I had fully up and running. And installed in 1 hour! I love how I can control everything from the iPhone and that I can put unlimited devices on it. Only downside is it requires Internet and electrical to run. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!

    Best DIY Home Security System

    Posted .

    In my opinion it's the best DIY security system anybody can buy these days. Super simple to set up and if you ever have any questions there's an easy to understand and friendly contact support center. Their cameras are great, I'm just waiting for some outdoor models to come out. In a few months they will have a new "Pro" indoor camera that has motion tracking and other neat features built in. I would definitely recommend this to a friend or family member!

    Great, cost-effective system; one gap

    |
    Posted .

    This system does what it says it does in a cost-effective manner: it is a general purpose home security system, with door/window sensors, an audible alarm, motion sensor and camera. It was easy to set up, easy to arm and disarm, and seems to effectively transmit alarms and other notifications. The main gap is that there is no external camera, even as an available add-on. I contacted the company and they confirmed that they are developing one, but it seems an easy add-on, considering so many competitors have them. Anyway, I remain pleased with the system and the price.

    Good Enough

    Posted .

    The primary reason I wanted this was so if I was at home I would be aware if a break-in occurred. The alarm isn't loud enough to notify the neighbors but everyone in the house knows. This is also very useful for checking to see if a door is open before leaving, or when someone came home. There have been some glitches and if internet isn't reliable the alarm system goes down. Have had to reset the alarm multiple times due to internet issues.

    Great inexpensive security system

    Posted .

    Installation and setup was extremely easy. We had the system up and running in about 90 minutes start to finish. The spot cameras work well but a pan, tilt, and zoom camera as standard equipment would be better. The USB power cable could be longer. Contact and motion sensor setup was extremely simple. The cameras can only be viewed one at a time. It would be nice to be able to put all the camera video feeds on one screen.
