Like Brinks, you’ll set up your Protect America system with someone over the phone who will test all of its components. Plus if you have any issues, customer support is great over live chat and admittedly, not so great over the phone. I would especially recommend Protect America to Android users, as the Android app has over three stars. Brinks has integrations with Google Home making it easy to vocally control your system. I purchased Brinks Home Complete with Video, which includes the Brinks Home Touch, a SkyBell Slim Line Video Doorbell, a glass break detector, and a cellular communicator. Installation is DIY, although you’ll have some help over the phone, and professional monitoring is not required!However, if you do choose professional monitoring, Brinks only offers binding three year contracts, a definite drawback.

72 View at AmazonCheck Walmart?Detects both smoke and carbon monoxideDoesn’t require a hardwired connectionCan connect to multiple alarms via Wi FiPerformed poorly in our detection testsRequires extra equipment for the mobile appOnly compatible with Wink smart home platformThis alarm is two devices in one: a smoke detector and a carbon monoxide detector. It’s very easy to install because it runs on changeable batteries so you don’t have to hardwire it into your home’s electrical grid. If the Kidde KN COSM B RF detects an emergency in your home, it sets off a tone alarm as well as a voice alarm that gives instructions and tells you what the danger is. It also uses voice notifications to let you know when you need to change the battery. If you buy more than one of these detectors – and you should!– you can network them through your home’s Wi Fi network. Once they are connected to the internet, you can download the Wink smart home app to control your smoke detectors, as well as many other devices, remotely.

4. PerformanceThe Nest Hello's camera has a resolution of 1600 x 1200, and covers 160 degrees of view. It uses a 4:3 aspect ratio, for a squarer picture as opposed to some cameras' 16:9 wide screen view. The idea is that you'll be able to see packages on the ground in front of your door; but my whole doormat was out of view, so packages left there usually were, too. I found the picture clear and sharp — better than that of the Ring cameras, and with a larger field of view than the August Smart Doorbell Pro. The night vision, which engages automatically, also beats the Ring's. Nest Hello uses HDR, which helps lighten shadowy areas while not blowing out bright areas. Sometimes the video looks a little artificial as a result, but the point is that you get a good look at everything in the frame, which is just what you'd want from a doorbell camera. When you're looking at the live view on your smartphone or tablet, you can pan and zoom using your fingers right on the image. The lens is fixed, so it's just digital panning and up to 8x of digital zoom. This is nice to have just in case you need it, but the default wide view was detailed enough for me.
