Guardian

Cost:

Varies based on equipment selected

Guardian Protection Services offers some home automation options that work in conjunction with their home security system. In the home security business for over 60 years, Guardian has made a positive name for themselves. They've stepped into the home automation market with enhancements to their security system that allows homeowners to take control from any location via a web enabled computer or Smartphone.

Through access on Guardian's website, homeowners may perform a number of adjustments that are centered on home security, access and climate control:

  • Turn on or off the alarm
  • Unlock or lock doors
  • Control the air conditioner or heater
  • Create a programmed schedule for lighting and thermostat
  • Create and manage access codes to doors for contractors or other non family members
  • Create a reminder to arm the security system
  • Receive notification via email or text message if a door is opened, carbon monoxide levels are high, a fire occurs and more
  • Monitor the history of activity at home
  • Create event trigger light automation if a door opens, the security alarm sounds and more

Guardian uses GE manufactured equipment in their home security products. Prices for the combination home security and home automation system vary based on the number of sensors and equipment needed. Also be aware that Guardian works with professional installers and dealers, so their home security and home automation services are limited to the zip codes in which Guardian works.

While home automation is not the focus at Guardian, they do provide many nice features that allow customers to take control of some aspects of their home. For those that are comfortable with a dealer visiting their home to discuss their home automation and security needs, Guardian is worth a look.

The Home Automation Store

THE HOME AUTOMATION STORE

Cost:

Varies based on equipment selected

The Home Automation Store is an online retailer of home automation products, specifically X10 compatible products. X10 products use your homes existing wiring to allow products to communicate with each other. The Home Automation Store also sells some Z-Wave compatible products (which are similar to X10 products except they are wireless).

Searching the website is relatively simple, you may search their short list of product types on the left hand side of the home page with ease. Once you find a product you're interested in you may click on it for further details.

The Home Automation Store has a basic shipping policy but, no discounts or free shipping are available for large dollar orders. The return policy is also straightforward. If an item is damaged in shipping, you can get a full refund. There is a 30 day window to return items with a possible $15 restocking fee. Refunds will be issued within 10 days of receipt. Since The Home Automation Store is not a reseller of their own products, warranty on products is dictated by the manufacturer and may seem complicated for those that want an efficient shopping experience.

The Home Automation store failed to really grab our attention. To purchase a system you need to choose each individual product, and have a strong knowledge of home automation to do this yourself. With their average selection and website we had a tough time getting excited about The Home Automation Store.

Usually all you need is a computer or a mobile phone to easily control and monitor the many aspects of your home. Home automation can also be enhanced with a home security system to offer added security for your home and family.

There are a number of competent home automation companies that exist today. However, these home automation services can vary greatly in features offered and installation costs. Before selecting a home automation system, you should consider the following:

  • Usability. How technically savvy do you have to be to operate the home automation product? If it's too complicated, it's just not worth it.
  • Customer service. If you have a question or problem with your home automation system, will there be someone who can quickly answer your questions?
  • Guarantee. If the home automation system doesn't work, or you change your mind, can you return it for your money back?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Home Automation solutions available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right home automation system that you're looking for!
