Smanos W020 WiFi Alarm System review: Buy just the parts you need

Don Reisinger | Jan. 3, 2017
It’s effective enough, but a la carte pricing is really the only thing that sets this inexpensive DIY home security system apart from its competition.

These observations are true of any self-monitored security system, of course, and not everyone sees them as shortcomings. Many prefer to keep everything under their control and don’t like the idea of some nameless person in a remote location knowing what’s going on in their home. If you’re in that camp, the Smanos system is well priced and mostly effective (we found its siren anemic and its Wi-Fi camera subpar). But apart from a la carte pricing, there’s little to set it apart from many similar systems.
