    abode is easily the best, most comprehensive system I have come across (and I have been shopping for quite some time). Abode has the widest range of features and attributes, covering all aspects of both home security and home automation. ABODE offers a variety of components for full home coverage and easy customization, battery and Cellular backup, a truly open platform for full integration, and optional monitoring. It looks great, and it is affordable. Considering who the creators are, you know it’s going to be good. This is definitely one to get behind!
