Professionally Installed vs. DIY Home Security Systems

There are many types of home security systems you can choose from to protect your home. Considering the needs of your family and home is important when deciding about the type of security system that is the best fit for you. When it comes to home security system installation, see how DIY and professionally installed compare here. 

Quality of Equipment

When you choose a DIY home security system, you must choose a predetermined package deal of equipment. While some think this “takes the guesswork” out of choosing equipment, it is often not the best equipment to fit the security needs of your home. With a professional security system from ABC Fire and Burglar Alarm, an experienced security consultant will come to your home for a free consultation to determine the best equipment that fits your security needs.  

Installation Expertise

For those who find themselves to be tech-savvy, the task of installing a security system on their own does not seem to be difficult.  But for those who are not as tech-savvy a DIY security system can be a nightmare experience and take up a lot of your time. ABC Fire and Burglar Alarm technicians have years of experience and training to make the installation of your security system a breeze. They also take the time to walk you through using your security system and give you tips and best practices to get the most out of your new system.  

Support and Service

When you buy a DIY security system, not only is the installation your responsibility but so is the troubleshooting when the system encounters a problem. Installation kits may come with a set of instructions but the technical issues that will arise often are more complex to diagnose and fix. ABC Fire and Burglar Alarm offers a service package and has a local service department that can help you troubleshoot or send out a technician to fix the issue if needed. 


Having a security system that is installed by professionals gives you peace of mind that you are fully protected. Contact us today to receive a free quote for a professionally installed home security system.
