You may be surprised at what kind of protection you can buy with a small amount of money. Now looking back and comparing to what makes up todays state of the art security and alarm systems, those systems appear completely inadequate by todays standards. For instance, new technological innovations, such as infrared and motion detection technology has completely changed the way an alarm system functions, makes them far more reliable and easier to operate. With these new state of the art components, a security perimeter can actually be set up outside of a home or business that completely surrounds the building. This means that an intruder no longer has to enter a building in order to be detected, because he will trigger the alarm as soon as he is detected outside. They have range of thirty five feet, operate day or night in any type of weather conditions and can easily tell the difference between a dog, a cat or a human. This means that you will never have to be bothered by false alarms and you certainly won’t have to contend with an intruder in your home. Another thing that has made todays security systems far more effective and reliable is wireless technology, that improves systems in a number of areas. Prior to wireless technology, a security system was connected by a series of wires running throughout a building and just like you have seen in the movies these wires could be cut to disable the system. Not only that but monitored systems had to be connected to the monitoring station by a land phone line that could also be cut to disable that end of the system as well. With new wireless technology the actual components that make up the total system operate without wires and communicate with the control panel by radio waves.

For basic home security options, you can get the Iris Security Pack and the Iris Smart Hub. This isn't a combined kit like other systems we tested, but Lowe's sometimes includes the Smart Hub as a bonus item at no cost. Even at full price, the Security Pack and Smart Hub are less expensive than the competition. Iris has three no contract service plans: basic, premium and professional monitoring. The basic plan is free, gives you control over your system and sends alerts to your smartphone when the alarm goes off. The premium plan $9.
