How to Install a Home Security System

If you’re a homeowner and you’re looking into getting a home security system installed then you’re probably asking yourself how to install a home security system? There are plenty of options when it comes to securing your home from a new family dog to a high tech home security system with cameras for audio and video recording of possible intruders. You need to ask yourself exactly what you’re objectives are. What do you want to protect? Do you really need video cameras or are you okay with simple motion detectors and door/window contacts? Will a family dog do the trick or are you worried about intruders when you’re out of town and away from your home? These are all questions you need to consider before choosing a home security system.

Once you’ve decided on what type of home security system you’re going to go with you need to do some research to find out where you can get the best bang for your buck while still getting all of the bells and whistles in your home security system that you’re looking for. There are several monitoring companies out there like ADT, Monitronics and Protect America that will give you most if not all of the equipment for free as long as you sign up with them for a 36 month contract to monitor the home security system for you. This is actually a great deal for the homeowner because you don’t have to shell out hundreds of dollars to purchase the home security system. Now it comes down to that one simple question of how to install a home security system? Well… there are several of DIY (do it yourself) home security systems that can be mailed to you and with about an hour of work you can have your brand new home security system installed and working properly. If you’re not really a do it yourself kind of person then there are also several home security companies that will send a certified technician that knows exactly how to install a home security system. These home security technicians know how to install a home security system because they have been properly trained and they install hundreds of home security systems every year.

If you choose to go with a professional home security installation technician then you will need to negotiate a price for the installation. Most of the monitoring companies will give you the equipment for free but they still want around $100 to have a technician come out to your home that knows how to install a home security system. The reason is because the monitoring company has to pay for the technician’s time to install your home security system and train you on how to properly use it. The other reason is because a lot of times the technician will have to make a second trip out to your home for a service call incase there are issues with the home security system that has been installed.
