Scout Security is a home security company that got its start through a very successful crowdfunding campaign back in 2012. This level of success was quite something back then, as they didn\u2019t use the traditional crowdfunding sites that we all know about. Nonetheless, it\u2019s been a fast rise to fame since then, with the Scout security system becoming a favourite with many homeowners. Upon purchase you get a 9 piece kit, and this includes 1 Scout hub, 1 Door panel, 2 motion sensors and 5 access sensors. Stick around if you want us to walk you through everything in this home security system review, and find out if indeed this Scout system is the best home security system for you. Compare this to our ADT Home Security review roundup if you're not sure what home security option is best.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Scout Security\r\nAs you\u2019re about to learn in this security systems review, Scout offers a lot of advantages that you wouldn\u2019t traditionally get from most security companies. The Scout alarm is loud enough to scare off any unwanted visitors, and its door\/window sensors are small enough for you to conveniently hide.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nJust like the Frontpoint Home Security System, the 9 piece Scout system kit isn\u2019t something that you\u2019ll need to have someone over to install. You can place the Scout hub anywhere on your shelf or desk, the door panel on your main door (you\u2019re going to start using a key fob to get into your house), and a motion sensor right next to it because any movement is most likely to start from where the door is. Although sold separately, the indoor camera would also be a great addition to give you eyes on the house when you\u2019re away, (and make you eligible for a monthly monitoring plan). You\u2019ll then be able to control everything from the Scout mobile app. If you have a smart home set up that includes either Google Home or Alexa though, you can also integrate the Scout Security System to be able to issue voice commands.\r\nDesign\r\nAs more people continue to warm up to home automation & DIY home security, a lot of attention is also being given to how well these gadgets blend in with the decor. The Scout home security system however seems to meet most people\u2019s expectations, with cool color options such as arctic that are likely to match with your home. The two key fobs that it comes with (same case with the LiveWatch Home Security System) are great especially for people who aren\u2019t tech savvy enough for the control panel on the Scout app, and with an access sensor that\u2019s small enough to conveniently place close to your door or window, you\u2019ll be able to secure all points of entry in your house.\r\nValue\r\nYou don\u2019t really need to sign a contract (like you would with the Protect America Home Security System) to use the Scout home security system. You\u2019ll just choose whether you\u2019ll be paying per month or per year, and you\u2019ll be all set. If you want to have your house monitored by a pro, you can opt in for the Scout\u2019s professional monitoring program, where you\u2019ll have to choose your most preferred monthly monitoring plan. Its DIY installation process is easy to follow through by yourself, giving it a great edge over other home security systems that have a complex setup procedure. In case you have more people that need access to your house though, Scout also provides two key fobs that you can share out, which is another thing that makes it stand out from other security systems. In the event of a home atack, its alarm system is loud enough to scare off burglars at 105 decibels, and with cellular backup provided as an option, you\u2019ll get to know if anything happens to your Scout security system through SMS or a push notification.\r\nScout Security Wrap Up\r\nHopefully as we wrap up this home security system review, you\u2019ll have started to appreciate the level of quality you get with Scout equipment. If you\u2019ll not be able to monitor your house yourself, you can also choose from Scout\u2019s different monthly monitoring plans to make sure that you always have a set of eyes looking after your home.
