Professional Reviews

The Cam2 will provide a decent, feature rich, camera solution at a good price point and with the added bonus of all the security features being available all in the same place, within the Abode app. Read full review.

It’s incredibly easy to set up, due to the presence of a simple, flash card-style instruction card rather than an encyclopedia-like manual. Simplicity is key here. Read full review.

We appreciate its options to self-monitor or have the pros take over, as well as its smart home integrations. Read full review.

Don’t let the fear of complicated tech put you off securing your property with this user friendly smart security kit. Read full review.


We love that it works with Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri (via Apple HomeKit) – the only smart alarm currently to do so – meaning you can use the voice assistant as well your smartphone or keyfob to arm and disarm the alarm. Read full review.

With its large array of sensors and highly-configurable automation, the Abode Smart Security is a great DIY alarm system that can be customised to fit your home. There’s a monthly charge to use each system, but with a low starting point that gets you 4G backup, it’s a price worth paying for most people, and pay more and you get professional monitoring, too. Apple HomeKit is nice to see, giving further automation options. Read full review
