99 each. The LifeShield Essentials system goes for $199. 99 and comes with a base station, a keypad, a keychain fob, four door/window sensors, a motion sensor, a fire safety sensor, and an Asus Memo Pad 7 tablet with LifeShield software that you can use to control everything. Additional sensor pricing is similar to what you'll pay with SimpliSafe. Professional monitoring prices also vary from company to company. Ring offers one of the better deals around: For $10 per month you get 24/7 monitoring with police and fire department dispatch, full remote use of the mobile app, and unlimited cloud storage for your Ring cameras. SimpliSafe's monitoring plan goes for $14. 99 and gives you 24/7 monitoring with emergency dispatch, but you'll pay an extra $10 per month for remote use of the mobile app and to receive email and push alerts. Access to recorded video costs another $4. 99 per month per camera. Lifeshield's month to month monitoring plan will cost you $29.

Whatever CCTV system one chooses it will always need cameras, so a camera is a no brainer first purchase, assuming that one would opt for a ONVIF compliant system. One can then test this using Blue Iris or similar and a spare PC. However, in order to choose an appropriate camera one needs to understand how motion detection works. Is it done by the NVR or by the camera, or a combination of both?For example, a camera could have a PIR built in, whereas the NVR can only “see” the image. In this connection, I recall that somewhere in your articles you said that your system did not support advanced motion detection, whereas in your packaged systems review you put this as a con. Thanks for stopping by!Yes I am familiar with Swann equipment and they have lots of good features. However the reason I do not recommend them is that their cameras and NVRs are locked down – they do not work with any other brand or manufacturer’s products. You can see under the compatible products section of the product page, they list only a few Swann NVRs. This is because they do not support the ONVIF standard which guarantees inter operability. Or in other words you are stuck with them once you start buying their cameras/NVRs similar to what Apple does with iOS. This is not at all the DIY spirit I subscribe to, so I avoid such brands.

The Dashboard also lets you view your System Event Log, change your PIN, assign up to four guest PINs, and choose an optional Duress PIN, to use when an intruder is coercing you to disable the alarm. Enter it, and the alarm will stop sounding, but SimpliSafe will immediately send the police. You can also tweak settings like siren volume, entry and exit delay time, and manage and rename sensors in the Dashboard. But now, with the new system, most of these controls are accessible on the keypad too, which is nice. I’ve been using a Canary since their kickstart beginning; I started with one All in One unit mostly because my hard wired home security system’s temperature monitor had been replaced a couple of times and still gave untimely and weird reports. I also wanted to see what was actually going on and found it invaluable when our house sat vacant for a year while my wife was in medical treatment in another city.
