Frequently Asked Questions

DIY home security is different from traditional home security in two key ways. First, DIY home security does not require contracts. Most traditional security companies require contracts up to 5 years. Second, DIY security is designed so that you can easily install it yourself, without any fancy tools or professional technicians. Cove is a DIY home security company, so we try to make installation as quick as possible.
Many DIY security systems rely on cheap equipment and self-monitoring through an app. While Cove does have an app, our equipment is much higher quality, and all of our systems come with professional monitoring. Our customer reviews speak for themselves. Cove has a higher average star rating than any other DIY security system on Trustpilot, including Ring and SimpliSafe.
DIY security systems can vary significantly in quality of equipment and monitoring. Some systems only support self-monitoring, which is much less secure than professional monitoring. Cheaply-made equipment can contribute to false alarms and other inconveniences. Cove provides professional monitoring for all of our customers, as well as high-quality equipment. We even provide warranties on all our equipment, so if you ever do run into an issue, we’ll be able to resolve it for you quickly. If you have questions about a specific piece of equipment or about our professional monitoring team, please feel free to reach out to us at 855.268.3669.
Cove was designed to be as easy as possible for you to set up yourself. We accomplish this in a few ways. First, our equipment is wireless, so you don’t need to worry about drilling holes in your walls. Second, our sensors come with an adhesive backing, so you can simply stick them in place, without having to pull out your toolbox. And third, our alarm panel comes pre-programmed for your system. Once you plug in your hub and alarm panel, the on-screen instructions will walk you through the rest of the process.
