Abode Security Kit announced

Abode, a smart DIY security company, has launched a new system for entry level users: The Abode Security Kit. This is the most affordable system the company has ever offered.

The Abode security kit includes a hub, door/window sensors and a keyfob. It costs $159.99/PS198. The Abode Security Kit allows you to add as many devices or sensors as you want from Abode’s ever-expanding arsenal.

The new Security Kit, unlike the older and more expensive Aabode Essentials Gateway (2nd gen) and Iota-powered systems is powered by a Wi-Fi hub that doesn’t use Zigbee or Z-Wave . This saves users money.

Security Hubs are not as flexible as their older siblings. However, they can still be used with Alexa and the Google Assistant to automate more complex routines. Unfortunately there is no HomeKit available this time.
