Internet-connected home alarm systems are fighting for attention as expensive old-guard systems like ADT reinvent themselves. Piper(pictured here) is an all-in-one WiFi-enabled system with integrated 1080p camera, a siren, built-in motion sensors, and other home automation features. Users can access Piper remotely via an iOS or Android app.
Other smart alarm systems include iSmartAlarm, Canary, Oplink Security TripleShield, Viper Home, and SimpliSafe. All these systems cost $200-250. Some are all-in-one devices; others have components. Some have a camera integrated; some do not. Some charge monthly fees. Pick the best smart alarm system based on your security needs and the size of your house.
