Whether you live in an apartment, townhouse, or home, having security in your living space makes you feel protected. There are also so many products to choose from, and it all depends on your needs. Do you want a security system that covers the whole house, or do you want something just for your front door? And do you want the system to cover the outside, inside, or both? With so many options, security prices can start to add up, and the whole process can feel overwhelming.
Home security can be expensive, especially if you want a system that makes you feel the most secure. But the good news is that there are cheaper options to ensure your home is safe and protected without breaking the bank. Here are some of the top affordable home security options worth considering for your next purchase.
Amazon Echo Dot
An Amazon product under $50? It seems too good to be true, but it is! The Amazon Echo Dot (4th generation) runs about $25 and provides you with your security needs. Using Alexa Guard, the Dot is an inexpensive way to monitor your house with the Alexa mobile app (and is totally free to use, by the way). You can program your Alexa so that whenever you tell it that you're leaving the house, the device will switch to its home monitoring feature. Once this is done, your Echo will listen for any signs of an intruder, such as a window breaking, alarms, or human movement (they can detect when it's a pet). If any of these things do happen, you'll be notified through your phone.
Wyze Cam v3
Wyze Cam v3 is a great, inexpensive smart Wi-Fi camera option for under $40. Purchasing this as your home security camera means you'll get free person alerts through the Wyze app, allowing you to see who comes to your front steps or door. You'll also get 14 days of cloud storage, and it comes with an SD card slot if you want continuous recording. Since it's an outdoor security camera, it only makes sense for this to be weatherproof. However, it now also has clearer night vision, a wider field of view to see a wider range and a siren that can go off if needed.
Rishon Enterprises Addalock
Sometimes, you don't need to have a super high-tech security system to feel safe. A simple gadget will do the trick, just like this Rishon Enterprises Addalock for only $18. This is the perfect setup for renters, as this can be their version of a smart deadbolt. This DIY setup is a retrofit lock that offers a smart way to add more security with a low budget. The lock is also portable, so you can take it wherever you go in case you worry about additional security, like to a hotel or an Airbnb.
