The Problem with DIY Security Systems
According to statistics more than 50 percent of all home owners (who were surveyed) state they want a monitored security system, but don’t want to pay the initial investment. As a result, they take the DIY route.
Their hope is to save money by getting a low-cost alarm and monitoring service. Unfortunately, the providers of these “cheap” services are usually low quality. In many cases, homeowners are often left dealing with a self-monitored system.
All this results in subpar protection.
The Better Option
Yes, having a professional security system is going to be more of an initial investment. However, when the professionals install your system, they ensure everything is working properly. Also, the high-quality monitoring services are usually much more effective, and more affordable, than most people realize.
Today’s professionally installed systems also come with features that DIY systems don’t offer – such as 24/7 monitoring, door and window sensors, and remote access to see what’s going on when you aren’t there.
So, are DIY systems worth the investment? If you want peace of mind, and a system that is going to be monitored at all times, then the answer is a resounding “no.” The best thing you can do is go with the pros. They offer the best options and highest level of security possible.
