For years now I have wanted a home security system and for years I have put off purchasing one from a company like ADT for one reason: I didn’t like the idea of paying a monthly fee of $28.99 and getting stuck with a minimum 3 year contract. That’s $1,043 that I would rather save. Luckily, I ran across the SkylinkNet Alarm System, a home security and automation solution which can give your home basic protection for just $149.99 one time (the price of the starter kit).

The SkylinkNet Alarm System Starter Kit (save $5 on Amazon) includes an Internet Hub (the brains of the system), 2 wireless door or window sensors, a keychain remote (with a 300ft range) and a motion sensor. That’s not bad at all for just $149.99. For a basic 3 bedroom home with a front and back door, a door to the garage and perhaps a door from the garage to the backyard, I’d recommend adding 2 additional door sensors ($19.99 each) as well as a garage door sensor (also $19.99) which, together with the Internet Hub, would get you nicely setup for just under $210. That’s already a savings of over $800 compared to ADT’s introductory contract offer.
