Home Security Self-Installation

One of the expenses of having a home security system can be the cost of professional installation. However, you can self-install home security and avoid these charges. Self-installed alarm systems work just as well as ones installed professionally, assuming you do the installation correctly.

While there are many advantages to professional installation, modern security setups make do-it-yourself home security system installation easier than it’s ever been. If you’re thinking of trying to set up a do-it-yourself alarm system, here are the basic steps and the pros and cons of professional installation vs. do-it-yourself home security.

How to Set Up a Do-It-Yourself Alarm System

Once you get the equipment from the security company, the steps are fairly easy. The most challenging part is installing the main security panel, but all this requires is hammering a nail into a wall near a plug, hanging the panel on it, and plugging it in. Your do-it-yourself alarm system will be wireless, so once the panel is up, all you have to do is place the sensors and motion detectors around your house. These are usually peel-and-stick items, so there are no tools, and there is no special knowledge required

Our home security and video surveillance kits are out-of-the-box solutions that only take a few moments to install. Just follow these three simple steps:

Once that’s done, all that remains is to follow the steps the we provide for connecting the system to a landline, internet or cellular network to activate the wireless service and any monitoring or smart device technology.

Professional Installation vs. Do-It-Yourself

The benefits of do-it-yourself home security are obvious. The main one is you don’t have to pay the installation fees. Also, setting up a do-it-yourself alarm system means you don’t have to have your daily life interfered with by a technician or wait for an appointment. Plus, you get to set up the system the way you want it.

That said, there are some disadvantages to professional installation of your home security system. For one, you have to do all the work yourself. It will probably take you longer than it takes the pros, and the pros know from experience the best way to set up your system. Also, with a professional on hand, they can walk you through every step of how to use the system, so you don’t have to spend time trying to puzzle anything out.

It’s also important to find out if do-it-yourself installation incurs greater equipment costs and if doing it yourself affects any warranties on your system or equipment. You may change your mind based on the answers.
