A security system is something that every homeowner hopes they’ll never need, but many want to have—just in case. Manufactured homes need security systems just as much as site-built homes do, and there are a variety of options available for outfitting your manufactured home with high-performance security.
These six mobile home security systems will help to keep your manufactured home safe and sound. Many include cutting-edge features such as smart home integration and mobile device apps, and each offers unique features and advantages that homeowners will appreciate.

1. Globe Electric Wi-Fi Smart Indoor Security Camera ($50.73)
Indoor security cameras are a key part of many homeowners’ security systems. These cameras continuously monitor a home for signs of trouble, and many of today’s models include the ability to monitor a home remotely using a mobile app.
Globe Electric’s smart security cameras are among the best bargains in manufactured home security. These indoor security cameras include many of the key features of more expensive security cameras, including Wi-Fi integration, an included app and compatibility with smart home assistants such as Google Home and Alexa.
2. Heath Zenith LED Outdoor Floodlight – Motion Sensor Activated ($54.37)
Security lights are among the most cost-effective security upgrades that a manufactured home owner can make.

Strategically placing two or three security lights can give a homeowner near-complete coverage of their home.
At just over $50 apiece, the Heath Zenith can be the perfect bargain for homeowners who need a cost-effective security solution. These rugged motion-activated polycarbonate lights can be mounted on walls or eaves and feature a 180-degree adjustable range.
