security system for homes
However, if you self monitor with SimpliSafe, you won’t be able to control your system remotely, livestream footage, or receive notifications. 24/7 professional
monitoring would be better for a family where all adults work full time and wouldn’t have time to contact emergency services if an alarm goes off. However, if you have someone that stays
at home, self monitoring should be fine. Ring Alarm also has a siren and you can self monitor and still control your system remotely and all that jazz, plus professional monitoring is super affordable. I’d check out this review of Ring vs. Simplisafe and let me know if you have any other questions!If you don’t buy the equipment outright, Vivint requires either a four or five year contract — a long time to commit, especially given that you only have three days from the date of install to cancel.
