Three DIY Home Security Projects You Should Complete Before 2014

ALEXOR‘Tis the season to be jolly, but it’s also the season to get a few last minute home security activities under your belt, too. While you may have thought that home security devices were best managed by a security vendor, think again. Modern security manufacturers have created a slew of high-tech and reliable equipment types which are also affordable and relatively easy to install as a do-it-yourself activity.

Now that you know this, there’s no reason for you to reschedule your holiday preparation activities in order to wait for a salesperson to help you select your home security devices. Nor is there any reason for you to waste even more time in scheduling a separate installation appointment. In addition to time, DIY home security also allows you to save money on things that vendors routinely overcharge the public for such as equipment, service and installation.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the best DIY home security projects you can and should complete before year’s end…

Burglar Alarm

You may have known that we’d start with this one and we offer no apologies for doing so. After all, we solidly believe that no home or office space should be without a burglar alarm. We are also particularly pleased to inform you that these devices do not require professional installation and many of the alarms featured on our main site are perfectly suited for homes of all sizes including condos, apartments and even dorm rooms! Alarms offered include hardwired devices, as well as wireless (which are the easiest to install). You even have time to install a full alarm system, such as the iSmart Alarm, which can be remotely controlled by your smartphone.

Alarm Monitoring

As satisfied as you may feel after accomplishing an alarm installation, we have news for you. No home security system is complete without alarm monitoring. We can hear you doing the math in your head now and wondering if you can include this service in your monthly budget. Let us help you out…yes, you can. How do we know this? Well, for starters monitoring doesn’t cost nearly as much as what traditional alarm vendors will quote you for the service. Whereas most charge several hundred dollars per year, we can hook you up with monitoring for less than $9 per month through Alarm Relay. The small cost for this enormous security service really is something that you can’t afford to pass up.

This security project is also the simplest on our list. All it takes is a phone call to our main office in order to start your order. And if that’s just too much work for you, you can always click the banner on our main page, too.

Surveillance System

Installing a full camera system in and around your home is something you can totally do before the clock strikes midnight on December 31st. And by full camera system, we mean a multi-channel hookup that will allow you to visually cover your home from every angle imaginable. Whereas doing so was once a very expensive and highly detailed job best left to the pros (and the very wealthy), you can now own and install a highly reliable indoor or outdoor surveillance system on your own without breaking the bank.

Browse our main site for an array of surveillance equipment ranging from one camera systems all the way up to 16. Just as with the alarm systems previously discussed, you may also opt for a hardwired system or one that is completely wireless. You may even select a system that allows you remote viewing capabilities from your smartphone, tablet computer or other personal computing device.

Make 2014 Your Best Home Security Year Yet

With so many devices at your fingertips…and with the ability to install each one with your own two hands, there’s just no reason for you not to secure your home and your family right away. You deserve the best and latest security technology, but you do not deserve to be billed for unnecessary and exorbitant costs. By installing your own DIY surveillance cameras and alarm system and then having that system monitored by a live team of experts, you can literally increase your home security exponentially without needing a second job to do so.
