Abode Systems has announced a new affordable but feature-packed solution designed to make home security accessible to all. The new Abode Security Kit, starting at $159.99 MSRP, is the newest addition to the Abode ecosystem and is built on the Abode home security platform. It provides an entry-level solution for customers who want reliable home security. This new offering is a three-piece kit that includes the Abode Security Hub, one mini door/window sensor, and one keyfob, but can be expanded with additional devices to suit the needs of any customer.
Purposely designed to prioritize simplicity and easy setup with in-app onboarding, the Abode Security Hub features built-in Wi-Fi and the accompanying app provides users with an intuitive means to set up and control the system. Via the Abode app, users can install each accessory device, get event notifications, arm and disarm the system, and set up device groups and customizable automations in the CUE automations engine.
The new Abode Security Kit is as flexible as it is affordable. Abode’s commitment to feature-rich security solutions that also boast compatibility with the industry’s leading smart home devices and integrations such as AI voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant also applies to this new offering. To expand the functionality of the system, users can also integrate Google Nest products like Nest Cams and Nest thermostats into the Abode app for native control and enjoy home entertainment features from other innovators such as Bose and Sonos.
The new kit takes the place of Abode’s initial flagship home security kit — known as the Smart Security Kit — and enjoys many of the same features but without Z-Wave or Zigbee connectivity and HomeKit certification. Users have access to both self and professional monitoring options as well, giving them tools like video recording and storage, detailed mobile event alerts, and intelligent person, pet and package detection — starting at $7/month.
Additional Abode Security Kit features include:
- Cellular backup for lost connectivity during an outage (with a Pro Monitoring subscription)
- Battery backup to keep system online in power outage
- Built-in 93db siren
- Detailed event notifications and timeline provided within the Abode app (with a Standard or Pro Monitoring subscription)
- Smart person, package, and pet detection (with a Standard or Pro Monitoring subscription)
Abode will continue to sell the original four-piece security kit, known as the Smart Security Kit for $279.99 MSRP as well as IOTA, the all-in-one Abode offering that combines a hub, PIR motion sensor, and an HD camera into a compact device for $329.99 MSRP.
Both the Smart Security Kit and IOTA system feature HomeKit compatibility along with Z-Wave and Zigbee connectivity and will be sold as premium solutions that satisfy specific needs, budgets, and preferences while still delivering the exceptional quality, functionality, and reliability Abode is known for.
For a limited time, Abode is offering special introductory pricing for the Abode Security Kit. The newest Abode solution will start at $139.99 and include free shipping.
