Abode Cost and Pricing

Abode Home Security is an affordable DIY installation system that offers two preset equipment kits to start building up your security system.

Equipment packages

Abode Home Security offers two very affordable equipment kits: The Smart Security Kit and the iota All-In-One Security Kit. Both packs come with one mini door/window sensor and a key fob. From there, you can add devices á-la-carte for a more customized security system, such as motion sensors, indoor cameras, and more, at low costs. It is best to start your security system by buying one of the equipment starter kits and add more devices over time, instead of buying many items that you won’t need in the long run. Abode’s equipment has a one-year warranty that could extend to unlimited while you are on the annual Secure monitoring plan, and come with a 30-day money-back guarantee.
