The most useful add ons are third party smart home devices. Scout Alarm, abode, SimpliSafe, SwannOne, Wink and Iris by Lowe's can all integrate with Nest, which means you can set up your home security system to work with other Nest products such as a security camera. Half of the systems we tested can also use If This Then That IFTTT, a free internet based automation service that helps DIY security systems and third party smart home devices work together. Of course IFTTT goes beyond smart home tasks, but we're unsure if linking your security system to financial services and restaurants has any material benefits at this time. Very few systems offer smoke detectors as an add on, and in the case of home8alarm, it uses a fireman device to send alerts when your smoke detectors go off. Most DIY security systems in our tests sell security cameras that record video if it detects motion, which can be used to help with police reports or insurance claims.

If you plan on heading out of town and will be away from your home for even a few days, be sure to let a trusted neighbor or friend know so they can tend to your home. Their duties may include picking up newspapers, mail or even turning on different lights inside of your home.

One often sees comments about unexplained “voices” over the camera two way speaker speaking to the kid when the parents are away, and the suspicion that if that’s the case, someone is also watching. This focus on security is missing from this write up. Eyespyfx features free software called MyWebcam broadcaster, which will let you use any USB or built in webcam as a security camera. The software allows users to broadcast a private or public feed, watch it remotely via a web browser or mobile device, and take time lapse photos at set intervals. If you already have a form of home security set up with other cameras, the software is compatible with USB and built in webcams, IP or network cameras, and it can enable control of the Logitech and Creative pan and tilt USB webcams. Its available for PC or Mac, and the company also offers an app that users can download to an Android, Blackberry, Java mobile, or iOS device.
