The majority of home security companies recommend or require you to call when ordering your service. We recommend this as well, because regardless of whether calling beforehand is required, having an attentive lineup of customer service comes in handy, especially when self installing or encountering difficulty with the system. You can often get a lower price by discussing your quote with a salesperson. Sometimes home security systems require an installation fee, equipment fees, or an activation fee. It’s quite common that special deals can waive or lower those. In fact, sales reps from eight of the nine security companies we considered offered us a discount over the phone — we didn’t even have to ask. If you decide that home automation is an important part of your home security, it’s a good idea to research home automation protocols to learn which one will work best for you. As we touched on above, a protocol is the language smart devices use to communicate with each other, and it serves as the foundation on which a home automation system is built. Not all protocols are the same, with some supporting more devices or using less power. Before committing to any home automation devices, look into which protocol works best for your home and if it supports the devices you wish to incorporate into your home automation system. These diy home security kits are typically but not always more affordable than a professional installation, while still giving you the necessary devices to protect any home.

I wouldn’t have it any other way. How to choose your Easy DIY home security camera systemSo you have chosen to go the Easy DIY Home CCTV route. That’s a great choice if you want to get started right away and don’t want the hassle of researching and understanding how to put a home CCTV system together. First off, lets get the confusion about names out of the way. Home Security Camera System, Home Surveillance System, NVR Surveillance System, NVR Security System, NVR kit, IP Camera Surveillance Kit – these all typically mean the same, a complete kit that includes everything you need to get up and running. Choosing your digital network based home security system depends on the following:How many cameras do you need?Security camera systems are commonly specified by the number of separate channels they support. This simply indicates how many separate camera video streams they can record. They start from single channel devices going all the way up to 32. What level of video quality or resolution do you need?My usual recommendation of at least 1080p 2 Megapixels applies. There are tons of substandard 720p HD Ready systems you can get, but none of them will have the resolution needed to allow law enforcement positive identification of an intruder. Do you want the ability to use wireless cameras as well?While I generally do not recommend using wireless for critical home systems such as security, there are some situations where a wireless camera makes sense.
