At a Glance

Nexia Home Intelligence is a good home-control system, but consumers looking for home security should consider systems that are monitored by a central office.

Price when rated: $299 for the Home Security Starter kit. As reviewed, with extra lock, camera, and door/window sensor: $718.
Lowest price: $169.00 via Amazon.com Marketplace

Pros

  • Schlage offers very good electronic entry locks
  • Devices can be managed from the video camera's user interface
  • Very good user interface, with broad platform support

Cons

  • Weak security: Central-office monitoring not available
  • Indoor cameras are mediocre and expensive
  • Paid subscription required to render system useful
