Safety and security are so important to me and my family, which is why when I had the opportunity to create sponsored content for Iris by Lowe’s I was excited to participate. Although I am being compensated to write this post, all thoughts and opinions are strictly my own.

Last year, after the death of my husband, I decided that I need to make a fresh start and move my boys and I into a new home. I admit that I was a bit apprehensive about living alone with the boys. I was concerned about our security. What if something happened? I wanted something that could keep us safe while still being budget friendly.

For the past year I have used devices such as extra locks and door bars but I knew that wasn’t enough. Thankfully, for me, there are systems such as Iris by Lowe’s. Iris gives me all of the benefits of a professional security monitoring system but without the long-term contracts. It is actually ideal for single moms like myself as not only does it not cost a fortune, but it was so easy to set up that I was able to do it myself in under an hour.

What makes Iris by Lowe’s unique is that not only is it easy to install but its also customizable. Its DIY friendly and connects to a range of Iris-compatible smart devices which are all controlled by a single mobile app.

I can receive alerts and monitor activity that happens around my house as well as control everything right on my smartphone.

Using the Iris by Lowe’s Security System

The heart of the system is the Iris Hub, which connects to your wireless router and controls all of the Iris smart devices.

After I installed the Iris Hub, I began installing the pieces to my Iris Security Pack which includes two window and door sensors; a motion detector; and a keypad.It gives me peace of mind knowing that the boys, or anyone else, can’t open the windows in the bedrooms without me knowing. In addition, if there is any motion in my front hallway when I’m not home or during the night I’ll also know.

One thing that is extremely appealing about the included keypad is that not only does it arm and disarm my system, but it also has a panic button which I’ve taught my boys to use in case there was ever an emergency.Another device that I installed, which is compatible with my Iris by Lowe’s, is a glass break detector. I have a large picture window in the front of my house which I always worry about being vulnerable for break-ins. This monitor will alert me if the glass is ever broken.

There are three options when it comes to Iris security monitoring ranging from a free plan up to a professional monitoring service for $14.95 a month — the best value among smart home security systems.

It’s not just security devices that Iris controls. Iris also works with over 100 smart devices including sensors, switches, plugs, keypads, locks, thermostats, bulbs, garage openers, heaters, vents, and more.

Additionally, I have the opportunity to offer my readers 10% off Iris starter packs and smart hubs when using the code MYIRISSECURITY. The offer is good through June 29.Protecting the ones I love the most is of utmost importance to me. This means, as a mom, I want to do all that I can to make our home as safe as possible and Iris by Lowe’s helps me do this.
