Even at full price, the Security Pack and Smart Hub are less expensive
than the competition. Iris has three no contract service
plans: basic, premium and professional monitoring. The basic plan is free, gives you control over your system and sends alerts to your smartphone when the alarm goes off. The premium plan $9. 99/month expands the basic plan controls and adds video storage. The professional monitoring plan $14. 95/month adds cellular backup and links your home to a certified monitoring station that can send emergency responders to your home. This professional monitoring plan is the cheapest among the systems we tested, tied with SimpliSafe. For cellular backup, you need to buy a modem that plugs into the Smart Hub. The keypad in the Security Pack has a built in siren, but it's one of the quietest we tested. This system is compatible with more smart home devices than the others we tested.
