Best Wire-free Home Security System 

Arlo offers the best smart camera system on this list. However, it is pricey to run. Also, if you aren’t great with technology, you’re better off choosing Simplisafe or Vivint over this.

 Imagine combining Lorex and SimpliSafe together, and you get Arlo! Arlo offers amazing cameras that can work via cloud storage, either record-by-motion or 24/7 recording. Cameras have a built in siren (that kind of sounds like a very upset momma bird when activated) to help scare away intruders. There is no main base station like other companies. Instead, there is one keypad that has dedicated buttons for alarm, police, fire, and medical emergency.
