What is a DIY Security System?
A DIY security system is a security system that you can install yourself without the need for a professional installation. These security systems often come in kits with all the hardware and instructions required for installation, including sensors, keypad and control panel, and can be set up to monitor and secure your home or business premises. DIY security systems are typically more affordable than professionally installed systems and can be customized to your specific needs and preferences. However, it's important to ensure that you choose a reliable system with strong security features and that you follow the provided installation instructions carefully to ensure optimal performance and security. The most common sensors on a DIY security system are; door/window contacts
, motion detectors
, glassbreak detectors
and carbon monoxide
, flood sensors
and surveillance cameras
The main reasons to choose a DIY security system are:
DIY security systems are typically more affordable compared to professionally installed systems. This is because you don't have to pay for installation fees or ongoing maintenance costs.
2. Easy to Install:
A DIY security system is designed to be easy to install without any specialized knowledge, tools or expertise. You don't need to hire a professional installer, and you can install the system yourself in just a few hours.
DIY security systems are highly customizable, allowing you to choose the specific components and features that suit your needs. You can tailor your system to meet your specific security requirements, and expand or upgrade it as needed.
With a DIY security system, you have complete control over your system. You can monitor your system, receive alerts and notifications. And, if you have video surveillance, you view live and access stored video clip footage from anywhere using your smartphone or computer.
DIY security systems are flexible and can be moved and re-installed in a new location if you move homes. This is especially beneficial for renters who may not want to invest in a permanent security system in a home they don't own.
DIY security systems can be effective at fighting crime. While they may not offer the same level of monitoring and support as professional security systems, they can still be a deterrent and provide basic home security. DIY security systems are designed to alert you (and the authorities if linked to GeoArm's central station
monitoring services) if there is an intrusion in your home. This can increase the likelihood of catching the perpetrator and recovering any stolen items. The presence of a DIY security system can discourage criminals from targeting your home in the first place, as it presents a higher risk of getting caught.
