So You Want a Home Security System

Cnet is one of the internet’s most trusted resources for gadget product reviews and the like, so who better to turn to when selecting your home security system? If you are a total tech-head or a complete novice who is just looking to keep their family safe, they’ve got the advice you need. If you are just getting started with building your DIY home security system you will need:


  • Surveillance cameras (both indoor and outdoor, and night vision enabled for both locations)
  • Contact sensors for doors and windows
  • Motion detectors
  • Recording apparatus
  • Wifi
  • App integration

What Does Cnet Have to Suggest for Best 2018 Home Security Options?

According to the bible of tech gadgetry, the best option for a DIY home security system is the Nest Secure. This kit provides everything that you need to get started, including contact door and window sensors and a room motion detector in addition to the standard issue cameras. Prices are a bit on the high side, ranging from $350-$450 depending on where you make your purchase.

August Smart Lock Pro is an example of Cnet’s affinity with advanced technology such as home automation. This integrated feature allows you to control your door security remotely, which is especially handy on those mornings you run out the door late for work and aren’t quite sure if you locked the door behind you.

The Amazon Cloud Cam is one of our favorite security devices because of its recording and footage retrieval capability. The 1080p HD live feed is nothing short of amazing, and the fact that 24-hour clip storage comes free makes it even better!

Those are the products that the team over at Cnet are most excited about for 2018. What do you think? We are super excited about all of the advancements in the home security technology that is available, but to be honest, the entire process is beginning to feel rather overwhelming! And having to source all of the equipment ourselves without ever quite knowing if we’ve done it all correctly is a bit worrisome. Can’t someone just take care of this for us, and make sure that we’ve got everything that we need?
