You may have seen ads for DIY Home Security Systems. They might even have started you thinking about the list of home DIY projects on your refrigerator door and wondering if you should add “install home security” to it.
Then a couple of questions cross your mind:
- A home security system is an important item and since your family’s safety will depend on it, will I worry about if it’s installed correctly?
- Will the project take time away from projects you really enjoy – like woodworking, gardening, or watching sports?
So, you decide a little research is appropriate to evaluate if you should go the DIY route or engage professionals for your Home Security System.
Will a DIY system save me money?
That’s usually the main reason people consider DIY systems. But remember, you get what you pay for – a box of basic security equipment and manuals. You pay the retail price for the equipment and then add the investment of your time, which can vary depending on how familiar you are with installing electronics. While doing a home project, have you ever gotten halfway through and wondered if you were doing it right? Or find it takes three times as long because the directions aren’t clear? Are you interested in fire detection, a smart thermostat, or a doorbell camera? Check that out in advance, as some DIY security companies don’t integrate these devices, so you may have to purchase them separately and download multiple apps.
When you have professionals install your security system, you get the following:
Customized protection that fits your needs
Not every property, neighborhood, or crime profile is the same. Secur-Tek doesn’t just bring a standard box of equipment and go to work.
