In my experience, Vivint's is the best at security camera recording with the ability to go back and fetch time points on the footage easily. Most others takes a long time to go back and view footage, re capture it if needed for authorities. Thanks for the coverage on this post, in buying a home security system this control aspect from smart devices is actually what I'm researching first. Then whoever has the best platform is whom I'm going to be using. Vivint is refusing to cancel our home security even after I provided Official PCS orders and supporting documents that Vivint requested. In June 2008, my wife and I were greeted by a salesman, Trevor Moses Agent Reg: 32921 who worked for an home security company. Unfortunately we were mislead by his sales tactics and signed an agreement to have APX ALARM Currently VIVINT to secure our home. My wife mentioned that I am serving in the military and that we may leave for another AF assignment before our contract expires in 2013. Moses simply stated that all we have to do is call Vivint to cancel our home security services due to my Air Force obligations and that it would not be a problem. Just this past August 3+ yrs later, I was notified of a new assignment, in a different state. My wife made a call to Vivint to request assistance in terminating our home security due to my permanent change of station PCS.

The more expensive systems usually come with a wall mounted panel that acts as a communications hub, with a touch screen display that allows you to do everything the app does. The display lets you communicate with a professional monitoring service when an alarm is triggered and view video from any of the installed security cameras. While many systems use wireless components that are installed using double sided tape, some high end systems use components that require professional installation. These soup to nuts systems typically cost considerably more than DIY systems and offer 24/7 professional monitoring, but you may have to enter into a multi year contract and pay a hefty termination fee if you break it. They usually use touch screen hubs thatcontain RF, Wi Fi, Zigbee, and Z Wave radios, allowing them to communicate with and control a multitude of components including door and window sensors, door locks, glass break detectors, indoor and outdoor cameras, light switches, motion and water detectors, smoke/CO alarms, thermostats, video doorbells, and a host of other home automation devices. With a professionally monitored system, when a smoke or intrusion alarm is triggered, an agent will first try to reach you via the two way control panel before calling your listed phone number. If you fail to respond, the agent will call 911 to dispatch an emergency responder to your home. The nice thing about professionally installed systems is you don't have to lift a finger; after you've placed your order a technician will come to your home, set everything up for you, and show you how the system works. It's important to note that in some areas you may have to file for a permit to have a security system installed in your home. Nearly all of the latest DIY and high end home security systems offer support for voice control via Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and in some cases Apple Siri, which allows you to unlock doors, change thermostat settings, open the garage, and arm or disarm your system with a spoken command to a connected device like an Amazon Echo or a Google Home speaker. Many also offer support for IFTTT If This Then That applets, which use triggers from IFTTT compatible web services and devices to create an action.

Scout Alarm works with the smart home platforms from Amazon, Nest and IFTTT. When we tested Scout's siren, it wasn't as loud as other security alarms we tested, but it is loud enough that other sounds in your home shouldn’t drown it out. Scout's one year warranty isn't very long compared to the three year warranties from competitors, and the company doesn't sell any security cameras for the system. Read the full reviewBest ValueIris by Lowe's Check WalmartCheck Amazon?Most affordable professional monitoringComprehensive smart home compatibilityComprehensive equipment selectionCellular backup requires extra purchaseSome features require monthly feeOne year warrantyIris by Lowe's is the best value among DIY home security systems because it combines a capable system with the lowest prices we've seen. It's not as easy to set up and use as Scout Alarm and abode, but it works well enough for self monitoring your home as well as for professional monitoring. For basic home security options, you can get the Iris Security Pack and the Iris Smart Hub.
