The Eufy 5-piece alarm kit is a lot like other DIY systems. It takes less than 30 minutes to set up, it’s controlled from a mobile app, and it comes with all the basic sensors. Eufy also offers four kinds of 2K cameras.
The big difference is there’s no monthly fee. Eufy is an entirely self monitored system—no contracts, monthly monitoring costs, or cancellation fees. The company also takes extra measures like encryption and local storage to protect your privacy.
But cutting all that red tape comes at a cost. Without professional monitoring on your side, you’ll have to watch your system closely and respond to emergencies on your own.
