Basic vs Custom Security Systems

Keeping you and your family safe is always your number one priority, but keeping your home safe should be a big deal, too. This should mean you want the absolute best to ensure your family, yourself, and your home are the safest they can be! With so many different options out their now a days in this market we want to help you make sure you make the right choice!

First of all you want to make sure you know the types of security systems. There is a wide variety of security systems, and each has special features that set it apart from its competitors. When differentiating between security systems, it's important to consider these three categories:

  1. Monitoring: the means by which the system communicates with its monitoring center.
  2. Installation: the method of installation--professional or DIY.
  3. Home Automation: the ability to control various events in your home beyond basic security, including turning lights on and off, thermostat settings, and others.

These categories help you determine which system will best suit your home and lifestyle. Determining between a DIY set up vs. a professionally installed custom system is the big question. Sure you can go to Sam’s Club and get a basic easy to install set up that is cheap and simple. What is the saying…”You get what you pay for”, and of all the ways you can save money do you really want safety to be one of them?

Do it yourself systems do not require professional installation, which means an installer doesn't come to your home to set up the system and show you how to use it. Nor can it be customized to fit your personal needs and wants. Instead, you are mailed the equipment and given instructions on how to set it up on your own. 

A professionally installed system usually requires an installation fee. The benefit of a professionally installed system is that you don't have to worry about making a mistake during the installation process. A professional will ensure that the system is set up properly and answer any questions you have.

custom security system can be tailor-made to fit your needs, and can include almost anything you want it to. Custom alarms can give you better protection and convenience, although they usually cost a bit more to install. Depending on your needs, one or two custom features can be added to a basic security system to personalize it without breaking the bank!
