What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • No self-monitoring option: Instead, users will have to pay a monthly fee for professional monitoring.
  • Alarm Panel (touchscreen controller) battery backup: While the Cove Hub (main hub) that communicates with the monitoring center has a 24-hour battery backup, the Alarm Panel controller only has a four-hour backup.

Bottom Line

Professional monitoring for only $17.99 a month? Count us in. Cove, an innovative new security provider, had a lot that interested us, specifically its contract-free monitoring and integrations with Google Assistant and Alexa.
