What is DIY Home Alarm Monitoring?
for Self-Dispatch Monitoring Only!
Design and install an affordable home security system all by yourself, without professional alarm monitoring being required. No salesperson or technician has to come to your property. We takeover and sell a wide range of security, automation, video surveillance equipment, that allows our customers to skip the hassle of hiring expensive installers.
Once your home alarm system is installed, then sign up for GeoArm's do-it-yourself alarm monitoring services. With DIY alarm monitoring, the user can monitor their own home using technology and equipment that they can purchase and install themselves.
The DIY security system typically consists of sensors and cameras, which are placed around the home to detect any potential threats, such as intruders or fires. The system sends alerts and notifications to the user's smartphone or computer, allowing them to take immediate action if necessary. DIY alarm monitoring is typically less expensive than professional alarm monitoring and can be a good option for those who want to monitor their homes but don't want to pay an arm and a leg.
There are no specific statistics available on the effectiveness of DIY alarm monitoring in deterring crime. However, it is generally believed that any type of home security system can act as a deterrent to potential burglars or intruders, whether it is professionally installed or DIY. The mere presence of a visible alarm system or surveillance cameras can make a potential intruder think twice before attempting to break in.
Here at GeoArm, our DIY customers can build the home alarm system exactly how they want it, and then self-monitor from $8 a month!
General Steps for DIY Monitoring:
A home security sensor is triggered and is transmitted from the control panel to the end user only.
With DIY self monitoring, the end user is responsible for dispatching the appropriate authorities when an alarm initiating event occurs at their home.
