The Best Security Software to Protect You

Whether you’re looking to get a security system for your home, business, school, restaurant, or any corporate or private building, it’s always best to do some research before making your decision.

Security systems differ in terms of what they offer. Some systems require contracts, professional installation, hardware, and customer support, while on the other hand, you have systems that all you have to do is install the software to an existing smart home security device, and you’re good to go.

Price for this type of software depends on what you actually need. We have added a few companies that can offer you impressive solutions in this department so you can check and see the fees and prices.

1.    Ring Alarm

The first security software on our list is Ring Alarm. Coming from the latest in home security software, Ring Alarm comes with a hub, keypad, motion detector, and contact sensor. The sensors are used to track movement, like windows opening, and can be placed anywhere around the house or business offices. You can bolster your security by installing Ring’s doorbell or a front door camera. The whole kit starts at $199, and I should say that’s quite a reasonable price.

Ring offers other products such as the Alarm Smoke and CO Listener, Dome Siren, and Alarm Flood & Freeze Sensor. The company is growing big on the market and promises that you’ll be able to connect other smart devices in your home with your system.

Like Ring Alarm, SimpliSafe comes with a security hub that has alarm monitoring, sirens, and motion sensors for detecting movement, flooding, fires, and other unwanted natural disasters. You can purchase an additional camera with SimpliSafe, but the whole point of SimpliSafe is to keep you safe through the sensor-loaded hub. Installation for SipliSafe is easy, and it’s the perfect solution if you want to protect an apartment or a smaller house.

3.    Athena Security

Athena has smart security software cameras and alarm systems that use human-computer vision. The whole point of this security software is to understand the threat before it happens. Athena uses next-generation camera software that will identify if someone is pulling a knife or a gun and notify the monitoring service or police about an intrusion into your home, business, restaurant, school, or corporation.

Their A.I. analyzes data and studies behaviors of past crimes to understand when a crime is going to happen. Their service offers 24/7 live computer watching and with Athena, there are no false alarms.

4.    Vivint

Vivint offers the latest tech in home security software that is fully compatible with Google products.

They offer thermostats, for temperature monitoring in case of fire, cameras, doorbells, motion sensors, and smart locks. Each of these products could be bought separately, but if you are going to get a new system for your home then consider getting the whole bundle. Vivint is highly recommended for houses that are short on smart devices. The Vivint system needs to be installed professionally, so installation is something that comes with the price.
