Aesthetics and Security: The DIY iSmartAlarm Home Security Review

Are you tired of always thinking where to hide those security devices? Well, you can relax now.

iSmartAlarm has an elegant looking design for its security equipments so you won’t need to worry about chunky devices ruining your living room’s aesthetics. It’s white and it’s sleek. The devices can blend perfectly with your home’s interior design and you can even camouflage them as part of your home decor. However, in case you’re wondering how it actually looks like, you can think of Apple.

iSmartAlarm is a Do-It-Yourself surveillance kit that offers no contracts and monthly fees. It has a plug and play setup which makes it relatively easy to install. Furthermore, it  requires you to have only one main hub for your system. iSmartAlarm calls it the CubeOne and it can connect you to a variety of sensors.You actually  have 80 iSmartAlarm accessories to pair it with.

The CubeOne is a 4 inch device that you connect to a router via the included cable and to an AC outlet. Although it’s small in size, you can’t simply underestimate its capabilities.  For one, its alarm is marked at 110 decibels. As for comparison, you can just imagine listening to a car blowing its horn. Perhaps, it’s even louder than that.

iSmartAlarm comes with a mobile app that functions as a remote control to the system. You simply register your mobile number to verify an account and to create a personal security structure.

  • The mobile app comes free to download on either iTunes or Google Play.
  • It is, as the name implies, an iPhone compatible app.
  • Its interface has 4 tabs on the home screen in which you can use to arm or disarm the system, put it in home or even in panic mode.
  • You can program it to send alerts and notifications to the numbers you registered and authorized once a break in is detected.
  • However, its notification feature only sends alerts through automated texts and calls to your registered numbers. You may have to dial the police’s number on your own.

On the other hand, once you arm the system, you have 90 seconds to exit your house. It gives you another 60 second allowance for you to disarm the system. With the given time frame, you won’t have to worry about screaming at your kids to rush out of the house.

Marketed by IndieGogo, iSmartAlarm takes pride in its modern design. However, although it looks sophisticated,  its performance is claimed to be unparalleled.
