The hardware ranges from a central hub to motion sensors, door-and-window sensors, security cameras — and the new HD Video Doorbell.
LifeShield is similar to DIY security company SimpliSafe. Both offer a wide variety of home security accessories, similar to a professional security firms, but without the contracts.
