Home Security & Smart Devices


Home security is something that everyone should take seriously.   Even if you live in a nice neighborhood, having peace of mind is worth shelling out some money to upgrade your home's security system.  Here's how to upgrade your home security with smart devices.  

1.) Wyze Cam 1080p Security Camera

The small white cube houses a motion sensor and camera that enable human detection and smoke alarm recognition. It also has a microSD card slot, which you can use to not only enable continuous recording but also create time-lapse videos. We especially like how the Wyze Cam comes with 14 days of free rolling cloud storage

Price: $25

2.) Ring Doorbell

Answer the door and check-in on home at anytime from anywhere. Whether you’re in the backyard or halfway around the world, peace of mind is always at your fingertips with ring doorbell.  Ring also offers an entire home security package or you can buy what you need one piece at a time.

Price: $169

3.) SimpliSafe Home Security System

This all in one home security system comes with a base station, 1 key fab, 2 entry sensors, 3 motion sensors, and 2 glass break sensors.  Just plug in your Base Station, place your sensors, and in a few minutes your whole home is protected.  You can control the system through any smart device, remotely.  SimpliSafe also has operators on standby 24 hours a day that monitor every system.

Price: $399
