Self monitoring is fairly easy because many wireless home security systems come with a mobile app that enables you to access, monitor, and control your system using that app. However, the monitoring burden is entirely up to you. With professional monitoring, you will have a trained representative on standby 24/7 monitoring your home and can respond immediately if suspicious activity is detected. And, going with a monitored alarm could get you a larger discount on your homeowner’s insurance. Additionally, the self monitoring option is usually free of charge, whereas professional monitoring generally comes with an associated monthly fee. So it’s really a personal choice as to which route you want to go.

TEach outdoor smart device must be configured to attach firmly to a surface in the outdoor environment, have an access to a power supply source, function reliably under various severe weather conditions e. g. , water intrusion from a rainfall or snowstorm that could happen, and last for a long duration in the outdoor environment. As such, there is a need to mechanically mount a smart device to an outdoor surface in a compact and robust manner and with a convenient access to a power supply source, while incorporating into the smart device some resistance mechanisms against potential severe weather conditions. Accordingly, there is a need for systems and/or devices with more efficient, accurate, and effective methods for mounting, powering and operating a smart electronic device in an outdoor environment. A convenient and efficient approach is to integrate the smart electronic device into an existing outdoor electronic device, such that the smart electronic device can take advantage of existing infrastructures of the outdoor electronic device for mounting, powering and operating the smart electronic device.
