Answers to common home security questions

Home automation allows you to set automatic schedules or remotely control many functions in your home, including using your smartphone or computer to turn lights on/off, arm/disarm your home security system and lock/unlock doors, among other smart home capabilities. Many home security systems offer home automation features. However, these may not be available at all package levels and may require additional cost.

Most security systems use electronic devices that communicate with a central control panel to protect against burglary and other threats in the home. When the system is armed, motion sensors, which may include door and window sensors, communicate with the control panel to alert of any breaches or potential dangers. If any of these electronic devices is triggered, the control panel receives an alert of a potential home intrusion. It will then sound a high-decibel alarm and if your package includes monitoring services, the control panel with also notify the security monitoring company.

Many home security providers offer monitored home security for between $14.99 and $54.99 per month. Professional home security installation can cost between $0 to $199, depending on the type of plan and provider as well as special offers that may be available.

Home security equipment costs vary widely depending on which provider and equipment you choose. You may be able to get standard equipment included at no extra cost from some home security companies, while others may require you to pay for equipment upfront. Equipment like security cameras, extra sensors and smart home features are generally add-ons that drive up total equipment costs.

Monitored home security systems communicate with monitoring stations when a burglar alarm or other threats are detected by sensors. This communication can occur by cellular signal, broadband internet or landline phone connection, depending on who your home security provider is and which type of monitoring plan you choose. When this occurs, your home security provider will contact emergency personnel to respond. They may also try to contact you first by phone or mobile app to confirm it's not a false alarm.

Some home security providers have dedicated monitoring centers exclusively for their customers. Other home security providers use third-party monitoring services that may support customers from multiple home security companies.
