Comcast Xfinity Home FAQs
How much is the Xfinity home security system?
Prices vary with Xfinity based on your customer status, location, and the package you choose. But monthly, you can expect to pay between $55.00 and $75.00+ depending on your location, other Xfinity services, and your equipment and monitoring plans.
Which is better, ADT or Xfinity home security?
If you’re looking for home security, we think ADT comes out on top. Unlike Xfinity, ADT focuses on home security instead of bundling services like internet, TV, and phone service. All this multitasking from Xfinity leads to steep prices and confusing contracts.
But ADT isn’t perfect either. Read our review on ADT home security to learn more.
How does Xfinity Home work?
With Xfinity Home, you pair your monitoring plan with an equipment plan.

Can I get Xfinity Home if I’m not an Xfinity customer?
Yes. Prices will vary, but expect a minimum of $55 per month for just the Xfinity Home service. You can bundle home security with cable and internet from Xfinity for a better price.
Can I install an Xfinity Home security camera outside?
Yes. Xfinity Home offers only one security camera, but it’s designed for indoor and outdoor use. It’s weather-resistant and takes crisp HD live video, night or day. It’s small enough to use as a nanny cam in the nursery or to mount on your doorstep to check on visitors. An Xfinity installation professional can help you find the right spot to place your security camera inside or outside.
Is Xfinity Home professionally monitored?
Yes. Your Xfinity Home system is monitored 24/7 by trained monitoring professionals. Having the pros on your side speeds up response times from emergency responders and can minimize false alarms.
