Once installed, users can control the system via the included keypad, or the Roku Smart Home mobile app. You have separate configurable profiles whether you’re home or away, and you can turn home monitoring off completely whenever you want.
Roku doesn’t require a subscription, but you can add 24/7 professional monitoring powered by Noonlight — the same service supporting Wyze. For $9.99 a month, or $99.99 a year, agents will contact you immediately whenever the system is triggered, and you can request an emergency response with a single tap. Roku is also offering 50% off the first year if you decide to subscribe.
In addition to the launch of the Roku Home Monitoring System SE, the company has announced several new smart home features for both new and existing products. The updates include on-screen notifications and alarm countdowns when sensors are triggered, the ability to view camera events on Roku TVs, and voice control for Roku Smart Home devices using a Roku voice remote or mobile app.
In addition to the security system, Roku has expanded its smart home lineup by introducing a new $24.99 solar panel to power its outdoor camera, ensuring you’ll always have eyes on your home even if the power cuts. There’s also the fun Roku Smart Light Strip+ SE, which offers multi-colored lighting scenes with individual control, available in 16-foot and 32-foot lengths for $34.99 and $49.99, respectively.
