The new Security Kit is compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. It also features a built-in 93dB siren, 4G cellular backup for lost connectivity, a battery backup in case of a power outage, as well as smart person, package, and pet detection through compatible connected cameras. With a price of $159.99 (and the current sale price of $139.99), Abode’s Security Kit undercuts the competition, as Ring’s security system starts at around $200 without sales or discounts.
Abode plans to sell the new Security Kit alongside some of its more expensive and full-featured security systems, including the $279.99 Smart Security Kit that’s compatible with Apple’s HomeKit, Z-Wave, Zigbee, Alexa, and Google Home. It will also continue to sell its $329.99 Iota All-in-One Security Kit, which features a hub with a built-in motion sensor and streaming camera.
