Nuts & Bolts

SkyCover offers a clever selection of wireless home security systems that allow you to customize packages to suit just about any home protection and automation need.
Start with SkyCover’s Essential Equipment Package for $99 and you’ll get a Simon XTi control panel (currently offered with a free touchscreen upgrade), one pet-friendly motion detector, and three micro door/window sensors. This by itself is a powerful system, but a healthy array of additional components is also available.
Once you’ve selected your equipment, SkyCover has three monitoring packages that vary in price according to the level of service you require.
The SMART Security plan is $39.95 a month and includes intrusion, fire and environmental protection, life safety and wellness supervision, 24/7 monitoring, email and text alerts, and remote access control.

Though SkyCover’s plans technically run for a 36-month period, the beauty is that they’re offered with a no long-term contract option, so you don’t have to lock yourself into a commitment that could otherwise cost thousands of dollars.
Installation is DIY and extremely easy. Simply unpack, peel, and stick the components where instructed following the great video tutorials available on the company’s website. Shipping is free, equipment is warranted for three years, is smash-and-crash protected, and there’s no activation fee. If you don’t like the system after trying it for 30 days, simply return it and get your money back.
All systems are 100% wireless and cellular and are controlled remotely from any mobile device through SkyCover’s free mobile app. To sweeten things even more, SkyCover is currently offering up to $800 in free equipment to first-time customers.

Good to know - Home Security System Review

Good to Know

SkyCover is a new entrant into the hotly competitive field of home security and protection and hasn’t yet attained some of the accolades of its competitors. What SkyCover does have is certification from one of the world’s top companies–General Electric–and an ironclad warranty.

Cut to the Chase - Home Security System Review

Let’s Cut to the Chase

As a new player in an extremely competitive field you’ve simply got to do everything right just to survive. Yes it’s a tough business, so it’s almost astonishing how SkyCover has been able to make such a big splash in the home protection system industry so quickly.
Maybe it’s because they use only top equipment. Maybe it’s because their response time is second to none. Maybe it’s because of their ‘try it for free’ policy. But just maybe it’s because they’re not interested in tying you up for years at a time and for thousands of dollars like their rivals do.
Whatever the secret to SkyCover’s success has been, it’s certainly one company to watch and probably the one you should call next.
