With outlets such as Pinterest and HGTV growing in popularity, there has been an uptick in do-it-yourself (DIY) ventures. Home security is no exception. However, when it comes to home monitoring, taking the DIY route can put you and your family at risk when it isn’t done properly. Finding the right equipment and services is a vital piece to the DIY home security equation.

Educate Yourself on Equipment Capabilities and Setup Needs

More and more security companies are offering a DIY approach to home security. Bundled DIY packages (comprised of sensors, cameras, keypads and environmental detectors) cut costs for homeowners, as installation and maintenance are left to the consumer.

Home security installation, however, involves more than simply hooking up the technology. This is why education is key to properly selecting and installing equipment. Take the time to understand how equipment works, what is needed to properly set it up and maintenance requirements. Read up on the following in depth:

  • Proper placement throughout your home.
    Compatibility with other security equipment.
    Connectivity to networks.
    Network security.
    How often systems need to be updated or upgraded.
    The best vendors will include detailed setup instructions and support contact information alongside equipment to simplify the installation process.
