Paul is looking for a good alarm system for his home. Leo says that the easiest way is to go to an alarm company like Bay Alarm. He'll need a phone line for it, and they charge a monthly fee for monitoring. Leo says that all of them are about the same, though. He can do it himself with SimpliSafe. He'd install his own sensors and cameras, and it monitors for a more affordable rate.
This week's gadget is MAX, a low cost safety and security alarm which changes tones in case someone can't hear the higher toned alarm. It has a built in motion detector that can sound an alarm and set off a bright light when it detects movement. You can use it as a nightlight that goes on when you get out of bed as well (with no alarm, of course.)
