What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • No self-monitoring: There’s no way to avoid monthly fees with Xfinity, even if you pay for your equipment upfront.
  • No integrations with voice assistants: We couldn’t use Alexa or Google Assistant to control our Xfinity security system hands-free.
  • Professional installation required: The motion and door/ window sensors, part of all of Xfinityt’s systems, need to be professionally installed for a fee.

Bottom Line

Most people know Xfinity as a cable and Internet provider, but they also offer a home security system with affordable professional monitoring. The $30 to $40 a month fee also covers cellular backup, which kept our system on even when the power went out.
