Affordable Lowe's
Home Security System

You can install a Lowe's home security system yourself or have a professional install the desired security equipment.

Lowe's has two plans to choose from:

Basic Iris Plan
Premium Iris Plan

The basic plan is free and allows you to control your devices from your app.

The premium plan provides advanced ways to monitor and control your home. For example, when you walk into a room, the lights will come on automatically. You only pay about $10 a month. There is no contract and the the first two months are free.

Basic Iris Plan

It provides the essentials to control and monitor your home.
For example:

  • You can turn devices on and off remotely
  • Schedule devices to turn on and off
  • Receive notification when an alarm is triggered
  • Lock and unlock doors remotely
  • Control your thermostat remotely

Premium Iris Plan

In addition to the basic plan functions, the premium plan allows you:

  • Record video an command or based on alarms
  • Receive notification when authorized users come and go
  • Create rules across the system to have devices trigger other devices. For example, if an alarm is triggered, a hall light turns on.

With Iris you can do this:

  1. Monitor the kids and their TV time on days you work. Iris can let you know when your children have arrived home by letting you know the door has been unlocked. Install a motion activated camera to keep an eye on them until you get home. Get a smart plug for the TV so you can limit homework distraction from your mobile device.
  2. Iris helps you put your baby to bed using smart plugs and a camera. Use a camera to monitor when your little one falls asleep and smart plugs to turn off any sound machines or night lights.
  3. When carbon monoxide is triggered, Iris automatically activates the indoor siren, turns on ceiling fans, sends you a message and turns on your bedroom light.
  4. When a glass break sensor is activated, Iris can start the indoor siren, turn on the lights, start recording on the nearest camera and send you an alert.
  5. Iris will send alerts, turn on lights and set your camera to record when sensors are activated.
  6. When motion is sensed outside at night, Iris can turn on a porch light, set your camera to record and send an alert.
