Abode vs Cove Smart Comparison

Find out why Abode is the perfect solution for your Self-Installed DIY Home Security needs.

Abode was Named best DIY Home Security System for 2021. We also integrate with Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Sonos and more.

Don't be fooled by Cove's low upfront costs and "Cancel Anytime" policy

While you can cancel your service with them at any time your system will essentially become useless as you won’t have any monitoring and won’t be able to check in on your system from your phone. On top of that, if it hasn’t yet been 36 months of service with them, you’ll have to pay for the remainder of your equipment that they offered to you at an extreme discount at the time of purchase.
