    Scout is a self-installed, wireless home security system. We've created a more open, affordable and modern system than what is available on the market today. With month-to-month contracts and portable devices, Scout is a renter-friendly solution for the other 80% of the country.

    Scout is an official partner of Works with Nest, Amazon Echo / Alexa and IFTTT. Our system integrates with Philips Hue and LIFX connected lighting products. We have app extensions for the Apple Watch and Android Wear. We offer financing for Scout customers through Affirm.
