If you have a penchant for integrating smart home devices, the Abode home security system is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. Not only is it compatible with five of the major smart speaker systems (Apple Homekit included!), but it also works seamlessly with numerous other smart devices from top-tier brands like Philips Hue and Kwikset. And that's not all—Abode offers compatibility with Zigbee and Z-wave devices as well.
But there's always been a slight catch. To get all these automation capabilities, you would have to shell out almost $300 for Abode's basic starter equipment.
Well, not anymore.
This year, Abode rolled out its much-awaited budget-friendly option: the Security Kit. Costing half the price of the Iota and Smart Security systems, this kit packs enough punch to safeguard a small apartment, studio, or even a dorm room.
We got our hands on this kit and now we're ready to dive deep into what the Abode Security Kit has to offer—plus we guide you through the setup process.
