Pros

Fast Response to Alarms

On its website, Alder security states that they respond to alarms in an average of 3.4 seconds. This response time is for break-ins, fire alarms, and medical alert devices. In total, the company responds to over 2 million alarms per year.

10 Minute DIY

Alder security is a DIY home security company, meaning that customers set up their own home security devices in their homes. There are no professional installation fees. Because Alder is easy to install, you can move it with your new home for free. If you want a technician to set up your system in a new home, there is a $99 installation fee.

Home Security Cameras

Alder offers two types of home security cameras that both include 2-way audio, motion detection, night vision, and cloud storage.

Arlo Pro. This camera is weather-resistant, so it works both indoor and outdoor. Live stream from your mobile phone to see what’s going on around your home at any time. The camera has a built-in motion detector, so it starts recording whenever that is activated. This device is wire-free, so it uses batteries that are long-lasting and rechargeable. With Alder’s monitoring package, you can keep 7-days of recordings for up to 5 cameras in your home.

Yi. This indoor camera from Alder has 111 degree field of view and films in 1080p. Yi alerts you when there is motion in your home and can even alert you to sounds – features a baby crying detection.

Cons

No Packages Available – Individual Equipment Purchase

Unlike most home security companies, Alder does not home security packages available for purchasing. Instead, potential customers can browse the few home security and smart home devices the company advertises on its website, and potentially build their own system from there. The company does not have pricing available, nor does it recommend what type of equipment someone should buy for their specific home.

To learn about specific pricing and recommendations, you will have to call Alder and speak to their sales team.

Limited Details on Alder Costs

Along with no pricing of their devices, Alder does not outline how much their monthly monitoring fees are, or what specific services they offer. On average, customers pay $49.99/month for Alder (monitoring and equipment financing). Packages start at $35/month.

Long Contract

Your contract length with Alder will depend on how much equipment you purchase upfront. However, most Alder customers have a 5-year contract with the company. Those who wish to cancel their contract early will have to pay 90% of the remaining balance.

Our Recommendation

Alder is new to the home security industry – the company is less than 5 years old. They do not have smart home devices available for purchase and their security equipment seems limited. Because they do not share information on pricing and contracts, we cannot recommend Alder at this time. Check out our top home security companies for detailed pricing and equipment information.
