DIY Home Security Or Professionally Installed Systems: What Is Your Choice?
Smart home security has been thriving with most consumers who have installed it finding it great and offering efficient alerting. However, there are two types of systems that – the “DIY” ones where you will have to set everything up from scratch and the other where you have a professional install it at your premises. It is often a tough choice to choose between two of the options. With DIY, you will be able to choose your own range of products and have a say on the devices that you would like to install. You will also be responsible for the setup of the devices and ensure that they are all linked together in order for them to work like they should.
On the other hand, a professional installation will include a walkthrough of the devices that are going to be installed, the ideal setup locations, connectivity of all the devices, and so on. Here, you will have to add on subscriptions to your package so that the monitoring is enabled for your home and the alerts can be directly sent to your phone.
DIY systems allow for self-monitoring, where you get alerts and local sirens.
Professionally installed systems are more expensive, but have a pain-free process of setup, better support, and strong device integration. On the other hand, DIY systems are generally more affordable, customizable, and scalable over time, but initial installation can be painful. Monitoring is also optional and affordable.
