Smart security gadgets could outsell professional systems 2 to 1

Lots of folks consider getting a professionally-monitored home security system to protect their house -- but consider this: A new study from Parks Associates found that twice as many consumers intend to buy a standalone smart security gadget like a video doorbell or a smart lock, instead.

Specifically, 16 percent of respondents plan to buy a gadget like that in the next year, compared to 8 percent who plan to buy a home security system.

"These smart products address the same core needs of consumers -- to feel safe and secure in their home, having peace of mind that all is well, and knowing they will be alerted of potential dangers," said Dina Abdelrazik, senior analyst at Parks Associates.
