Scout Alarm emphasizes allowing customers to build the security system that they want on an a-la-carte basis. Scout's DIY aesthetic also comes with 24/7 monitoring.
In 2013, Scout launched an independent crowdfunding campaign for its products. The goal was met within 30 days and the company was able to proceed. The basis for Scout is that home security shouldn’t be based on a “one size fits all” approach. The great thing about Scout systems is that it is centered on a-la-carte equipment options (meaning you only buy what you need) and it can also be integrated with other products such as Nest and Hue.
Unlike with other security systems that have contracts, Scout systems don’t have an annual contract. Scout operates with a monthly plan; however, if you select a yearly monitoring plan option, it will save 10% a year.
Scout provides wireless security systems. So it’s easy to install right out of the box. To help with the do it yourself (DIY) install, there are several installation videos—one for each part of the security system (ie: door panel, motion sensor, etc.).
The downloadable Scout app is compatible with both iOS and Android mobile devices. So you can remotely control the Scout system from virtually anywhere.
Scout can be integrated with the following products: Nest, Hue, Amazon Echo, LIFX, and IFTTT.
