The Best Home Security System
Updated Dec 11, 2022
Achieving peace of mind for your home doesn’t have to be pricey or difficult. Traditional home security systems often require long contracts and expensive professional installation, but most smart DIY security systems are affordable and easy to install, and allow you to pay for a monitoring plan only when you want it. Ring offers two of the most comprehensive and easy-to-use DIY home security systems we’ve tested: the Ring Alarm Pro and the original Ring Alarm. Both use the same simple app, offer multiple add-ons (including more choices for cameras and video doorbells compared with our other picks), and give you the option to sign up for pro monitoring without locking you into a contract.
