Are you looking for smart home deals this holiday season?

Smart home equipment requires expertise to set up, program and maintain—expertise that retail stores can't provide, and that you might not have time to learn.

If you're like most homeowners, a home security dealer specializing in technology, is a better deal over the long term. As smart home deals go, here's what makes this one the best of all.

  1. Professional Installation and Configuration: Each device needs to be configured to communicate with you, your home network and other devices. Setting up and maintaining these type of network connections requires a different skill set that can leave even confident DIY-ers baffled. When you use a service provider, they're equipped with sophisticated tools to ensure that every device is ready to communicate and respond to your commands.

  2. Support and Service: The additional services that a service provider brings to your smart home purchase are a huge advantage when owning a new technology.
    Should anything go wrong, anytime, your service provider steps in to fix it. service providers also provide 24/7 professional security monitoring—a home security "gold standard" service for emergencies that comes as part of the package.

  3. Building your own system from scratch is expensive: Building a multi-device system on your own involves a large outlay of cash upfront. With a service provider, however, you can have it delivered, installed, and running with a reasonable down payment on a monthly contract. Instead of saving up to install device after device, you get a sophisticated smart home, powered by's award-winning cloud intelligence, on day one.
