Home security systems aren’t just for homeowners. Renters should protect their valuables, keepsakes and privacy too. You may not plan on living in an apartment forever, but that doesn’t mean you want someone going through your belongings and taking what they please.
Did you know that the security company you buy your system from is most likely different from the company that monitors the system? That’s why it’s important to purchase a security system from a company with quality equipment as well as a responsive monitoring company.
ADT has finally embraced a DIY home security system. After being in business for almost 150 years, ADT acquired LifeShield in 2019 to offer a DIY system for those who don’t want to hassle with professional installation. Now you don’t have to worry about installation fees, missing work to be home for the installer to arrive, or given that there’s a pandemic, welcoming a stranger into your home. That’s because it’s easy to setup your Blue by ADT system yourself, and we’ll show you just how easy. But is Blue as good as other DIY home security systems? And with the fairly new acquisition, are you getting more ADT or more LifeShield, and is either of those a good thing? Our experts find out in our Blue By ADT review.

Abode Security Review: Iota All-In-One Home Security System, Camera, DIY, Compatible Devices, Coupon, And More
Abode (not to be confused with the Adobe line of creative software) is a solid home security system for those of you who want no contracts and a low professional monitoring fee. Their all-in-one Iota system is easy to install, and there’s a wide range of equipment to choose from. So why isn’t Abode as widely talked about as its competitors? Our experts dive in to find out.
SimpliSafe and Abode offer security systems with no long-term contracts. You purchase the equipment, pay for your monitoring plan and stop service whenever you want. SimpliSafe is a household name with its multi-platform advertisements and Abode is still a rather small company. But could Abode protect your home just as well as SimpliSafe for less money?
Abode and Ring Alarm are two options for DIY home security systems. Neither has long-term contracts, and both offer professional monitoring as an option. However, one of them is more established, has better pricing, more equipment options, and better technology. Decide which one is best for your home by reading our comparison.
Brinks, the armored car transportation service that is known to transport money from location to location in its armored trucks, has also entered the lucrative home security market. Unfortunately, just because they’re good at protecting your hard-earned dollars on their way to the bank, doesn’t mean they’re good at protecting your valuables at home. If you’re fed up with Brinks’ home security and want to cancel, here’s how you do it.
