What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • No professional monitoring options: We were 100% responsible for our home’s security, even while traveling or otherwise indisposed.
  • No cellular backup: Our system didn’t work in a power outage, as all of the components were plug-in and there was no cellular backup option.
  • No Alexa integration: We couldn’t use Alexa to control our Swann system, unfortunately.

Bottom Line

Looking to avoid monthly fees for your home security? We didn't pay a dime after our initial equipment costs for Swann, and the weatherproof cameras we tested were definitely worth the money.
