Choosing a Smart Home Security Solution

There's a lot to consider when it comes to buying a smart home security solution that meets your needs. From installing your new products to monitoring activity and syncing with other compatible products, the options can feel overwhelming. That's why we've put together a few basic things to consider when you're looking for the right solution to meet your needs.

Monitoring

Do you want someone to keep an eye on your home 24/7 for you, or do you prefer being in charge of your own security? You have the option to choose professional monitoring or self-monitoring.
