These are great systems, you just have to consider your needs before buying. There are a lot of different packages, the Leader Package [simplisafe.com] has been on sale for a long time and seems to be a good value if you need the camera that comes with it. Basically, you are getting the camera and 2 key fobs for free, which ends up being $150 or so in value over retail.

This is my spreadsheet as it stood a few months ago when I was researching, with the addition of this deal. They have some 'plus' packages that I have not added.

If you're looking to purchase a DIY Security System, I'd highly recommend waiting for Ring to release theirs. You can pay $10 a month for it being professionally monitored and their $199 kit comes with the following -
  • 1 Base Station
  • 1 Keypad
  • 1 Contact Sensor
  • 1 Motion Detector
  • 1 Range Extender

I'd expect it to go on sale at some point, but they have a little fight with ADT right now that's preventing them from going to market.

Not agreeing with that being a better deal. Simplisafe has a reputation, is professionally monitored for $15/month and comes with more sensors for the price. Also, simplisafe is cellular coverage, which is more reliable.

I've been debating between this, Abode and Ring.

I read in a couple places that Ring has a cellular backup if you have the base.

From Ring's website - "The Kit includes a backup battery and optional cellular backup, so even if the power and internet goes down, your home will still be protected. "

Guessing optional means that you can forget about the monitoring service only costing $10/mo.

Actually, no. Ring Protect monthly plan includes monitoring & cellular backup along with the following -
  • Cloud Storage
  • Video Review
  • Video Sharing
  • Unlimited Cameras
  • 10% off Ring devices at Ring.com
  • Lifetime Warranty - If your Ring is ever damaged or stolen, we'll replace it for free.
You can also purchase the subscription for $100 a year bringing down your average monthly cost to $8.33 a month. Note that this subscription is the same they offer for the other Ring devices, so if you already have that, you're not paying anything extra.

I stand corrected. When this product actually comes out, looks like it will be competitive. Until then, I need to protect my house. Which is why I went with Simplisafe.

Anybody have a good recommendation on a complete setup? I am liking the RING but it's still not out and would like to find something now. Thanks
