The Abode Iota is a high-end home security camera and security system in one. This compact device delivers two-way talk, high video quality, and sensitive motion detection. It also comes with the option to add 24/7 professional monitoring. That gives you a direct link to help through a monitoring center without buying any additional security equipment.

Best of all, Abode’s professional monitoring starts at just $8 per month, and there’s no contract required.

Abode’s simple security equipment and smart Iota security camera pack a wallop when it comes to smart home compatibility. As one of the only security systems that works with Apple HomeKit, we’re hard-pressed to find a smart gadget Abode doesn’t play well with.

Is Abode right for you?

If you want to protect your home and take full advantage of smart home automation, Abode offers the most compatibility of any security system we’ve seen. And it’s the only one that works with Apple HomeKit as well as Google Nest and Amazon Echo devices.

Abode Smart Security is well-suited to life in a studio apartment and suburban home alike. Both the Gateway and Iota systems are small, smart, and affordable.

Equipment packages and starter kits come with a smart hub, at least one contact sensor, and a key fob. But the more advanced Iota system has fewer components than its counterpart because it houses a camera, motion detector, and siren in one smart hub.

The biggest thing missing from the Abode security lineup is an outdoor camera or smart doorbell. But for apartment life, Abode is a great fit.
