You should have your alarm engaged while you are away or while you are at home as many thieves will attempt to break into one part of your home while you are busy in another. Also, some insurance companies may lower your home insurance premiums for having a home alarm system installed. What we like: Frontpoint offers a solid, portable alarm system with DIY installation. We love that Frontpoint’s equipment can be taken from home to home if a customer moves during their contract, making it ideal for renters. Frontpoint offers discounts on upfront costs for those who opt to sign a longer contract, with a basic system costing about $200. This system includes a keypad, control panel, three door/window sensors, one motion sensor, one glass break sensor and a keychain.

The equipment is efficient, and if you choose their premium service, you’ll also receive a lifetime warranty on the equipment itself. That can go a long way toward protecting your budget and ensuring that you’re making the right investment. All of this means you can have peace of mind that you are well protected. The monthly monitoring cost is around $30 to $50 per month, and Vivint customer service will be excited to sell you their latest and greatest options. The system is a good one for the money spent.

It's easy to set up and, thanks to its magnetic, swiveling base,it can be installed almost anywhere indoors. The video looks sharp; night vision is clear; the camera can be used as an intercom; and it interacts with the Nest Thermostat and the Nest Protect smoke detector, as well as numerous third party smart home devices. But to really make use of the camera's features, you'll have to shell out $10 or more per month for the Nest Aware program, which gives you access to cloud storage, person detection and customizable activity zones.
