DIY Home Security

diy home securityThinking of trying some DIY Home Security? Everyone wants to save some cash wherever possible but what price should you put on saving when it comes to securing your beloved home, prize possessions and the well-being of your family?

Yes, there are DIY home security house alarm systems out there that you can buy off the shelf for a one-off fee, but when it comes to installing and setting up is the mission all worth it?

For creating your own DIY home security, SGS Systems recommend the following:

  1. Research your DIY home security alarm as much as you can. Read reviews, read the installation instructions, speak to friends about their thoughts and recommendations.
  2. When purchasing, make sure your house alarm comes with a guarantee.
  3. Set aside a whole weekend for installation!
  4. Read the manual instructions thoroughly.
  5. If you have pets then consider where sensors will be placed and check if they can trigger them. A dog might trigger it where as a cat might not.
  6. If using a wireless monitor then check your DIY home security security settings. Getting into the techy side can be quite complicated but locking down with passwords is key to preventing hackers infiltrating your alarm system.
  7. Consider what will happen if the alarm triggers when you’re not there. The last thing you want is a call from your neighbour whilst you are on holiday.
  8. Consider what will happen if the alarm doesn’t trigger and you’re not there. Has it really served its purpose? especially with all the effort you’ve put in to try to protect your home.
