Cove – Most Affordable Security System for Google Home
Aside from having low prices for 24/7 professional monitoring, which starts at $14.99 a month, we didn’t spend a ton on Cove’s equipment, either. Aside from the Touch Alarm Panel, which was $92, everything else was under $25, which included the door and motion sensors, the key remote, the flood sensor, and more. We also got a free indoor camera from YI, although we wish that they made their own, higher-equality camera. Still, Cove is certainly affordable when it comes to equipment as well as monitoring costs.
Cove may not be the most well-known security system, but it’s a great choice for those that want 24/7 professional monitoring and a Google Home integration for about $25 a month. Cove’s pricing is certainly on the lower end, and they work well with Google Assistant. Through the Assistant, we had our Cove system arm, tell us its status, and get the sensor history for the week and the day.
