Understanding the Best Home Security Systems of 2023

August 17, 2023 by

Every year, new home security systems are being tested and reviewed. This allows the manufacturers to showcase the new technology upgrades, features, and more in their products, and try to outshine the competition.

These rankings help to see how actual customers interact with the product, and how it makes them feel safe. This is why every security system, upgrade, and feature are tested to such an extent.

You are more likely to trust a security product with a higher ranking than a lower one. Of course, this does not mean that the lower ranked ones are not good; they just might not work to your specific requirements.

The reviews are given based on certain criteria, including the following:

  • Ease of installation
  • Cost
  • Ease of use
  • Issues after (or during) the installation

At Canadian Security Professionals, we take pride in knowing that our products and home security systems are ranked high in all these areas.

In this article, let us take a closer look at the best three home security systems of 2023, and see how they can make your life easier and more secure.

Smarter Homes Have Smarter Security

Smart homes are becoming increasingly common. While it is great to have a home that will automatically brew your morning coffee or dim the lights at night, the security it provides as well is even more essential.

Any potential criminal will look at a home and make their decision to break in based on obvious security measures. A visible smart security system will likely make them walk away.

From cameras to two-way communication options, as well as dedicated access codes and tailored notifications, you will have true peace of mind knowing that your home is secure.

The three systems we will examine below all boast the most up-to-date built-in security features to give you the ultimate security for your home and peace of mind.

#1: 2GIG GC2e (Go Control)

This security system has been granted a review score of 9.9 out of 10.

It features an amazing easy to use 5” touchscreen panel that allows you to integrate all your devices, and create the smart home of your dreams. This security system is a tried and tested system that has proven itself to be exceptionally dependable as it ranks as the most reliable alarm system. The 2GIG GC2e offers real-time communication with the monitoring centre using its best in class 2-way voice. It can also notify you when someone enters the house, ability to add up to 64 unique user codes, dedicated emergency buttons and alarm.com integration so that you can control your alarm system, cameras, and automation devices on one app.

It boasts the best and most effective customer interface. Icons and backlighting make it easier to see and press the right function key.

This security system can even tell you when the kids get home from school or if the alarm has not been set at its normal time. The ultimate in control is at your fingertips for the busy, security-conscious family.

#2: Qolsys IQ4

This innovative panel and system gets a review score of 9.2 out of 10.

This state-of-the-art Android-based 7” touchscreen panel and all-in-one security package not only allows you to have full control but even disguises itself when not in use by becoming a digital photo frame.

Boasting the best in security systems for Wi-Fi networks, improved connectivity on LTE cellular networks, Bluetooth compatibility, and so much more, this system makes wireless security even more appealing.

One feature that stood out from the crowd is the Bluetooth disarming feature. You can disarm this system from the office, airport, or school, for instance. Even when you are carrying groceries, for example, using Bluetooth before you get to the front door makes it easier to bring everything in before setting off the alarm.

Also if you live in a larger home this could be the best alarm system option for you as the IQ4 panel also has compatibility with PowerG sensors. PowerG sensors are the longest range wireless sensors in the security industry with up to a 2KM wireless range.

#3: 2GIG Edge

With a review score of 9.1 out of 10, this security system is still up there in the top three and should be noticed.

Rated as one of the best-selling and hardest-working panels and systems, not only does it utilize Bluetooth technology, but it also includes added features like facial recognition.

A smart app that works with your alarm system gives you even more freedom to check in from wherever you are, especially if there are circumstances that you need to monitor, such as kids coming home from school or an elderly family member visiting or living with you who may need assistance.

With the proven quality of its products and field-tested for all situations, this security system’s track record is unbeatable.
