Trying to decide between abode & Cove?

Find out why abode is the perfect solution for your security needs.

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.
