Smart Home Management System Comparison Chart

Most smart home systems on the market cost several hundreds of dollars in professional installation and monthly monitoring fees, and lock you into long-term contracts. With Iris, you can set up your own home monitoring and control system today for a fraction of the cost, with no monthly fees and no long-term contracts. Plus, Iris offers the flexibility to customize your system with the great quality products and value you expect from Lowe's.
