Locally stored video is a good choice for do it yourselfers on a budget, but you have to be careful not to overwrite video you may need later. Cloud storage makes it easy to store and access recorded video, but it can cost hundreds of dollars per year depending on your subscription. Some systems offer both cloud storage and local storage, and some provide a dedicated storage drive that gives you DVR capabilities with time lapse recording, which makes it easy to find a video event that took place at a specific point in time. All of the systems we've tested feature an app that lets you use your smartphone as your command center to arm and disarm the system, create rules, add and delete components, and receive push notifications when alarms are triggered. Most apps also allow you to do things like view live and recorded video, lock and unlock doors, change thermostat settings, and silence alarms. Some apps will even use your phone's location services to automatically arm and disarm the system according to your physical location. 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.

So far we have installed an internal alarm system but we will also be using Smart Home Security to provide us with external CCTV cameras and gate automation, all which will integrate with what we currently have and be controlled via our existing app. A great feature is the ability to take the system with you when you move, though this is not relevant to us as we plan on staying in this house for quite a while!I had given this a one star because it was not accurately presented to me. I argue it’s not wireless because I asked when I was told that it was wireless and finds its own internet that I have a medical device that finds its own internet, will it not conflict with it and I was told it will not but on the day of fitting a box was plugged into my internet and left there. I felt like something had been taken off me from under my feet because there was not supposed to be something plugged into my internet, I was led to believe it finds its own internet. However I was vulnerable at that time as I had just been burgled. Subsequently the alarm would go off without any intrusion. I reported this and on two separate occasions it was attended to but on the third occasion it wasn’t and later I was told to read my manual which was emailed to me. But it continued going off without intrusion so I turned it off until I went away when people I had left to attend to the intruder alarm eventually complained that it was going off without intruders. I then left a one star rating which was responded to very promptly and I am Very Pleased that I can now set my alarm on and go to sleep without being woken up unnecessarily. I was requested to delete the one star rating and I did. It had not worked the way I needed when I had it isince May but I am Very pleased with the service I have received since my last review.
