Installing a home security system seems like a daunting task to some. After all, home alarm system installations have traditionally been completed by very experienced technicians who have had training in the field. It’s true that in the past, installing a home alarm system and, more importantly, running the wiring that went along with old installations, required a fully trained security technician. This is no longer the case, however, as advances in technology and wireless equipment have made installing home security systems much easier. If you still wonder if you can handle installing a DIY home alarm, here are some questions you should ask yourself:
Can I plug in a computer?
The most advanced electrical work you will have to do as part of installing a standard DIY Protection home security system is plugging in a keypad. That may seem straightforward, and that is because it is! Every DIY Protection home alarm system comes with a keypad and a stand that can get plugged in to any standard Canadian wall outlet. If you have plugged in a laptop, desktop or tablet of any kind, then you can set up the keypad yourself. The system is so similar to plugging in a tablet, in fact, that if you own any Apple or Android device, you can use them as an additional keypad on absolutely every DIY Protection home security system.
Can I put a painting a kid made you on your wall or fridge?
Whether or not you have children, you’re probably familiar with the sight of refrigerators and walls around the world being covered top to bottom with a child’s drawings or paintings. Aside from the cuteness factor, have you ever wondered how those pictures are hung? If you know the answer is tape or a magnet, then you can install DIY Protection home security equipment! In order to install a motion sensor or door contact, all you need is the ability to put something on the wall and hold it in place for a few seconds. This will ensure that your equipment is secure and will keep your home and family protected. There are no special tricks to this: we prepare all of your equipment to ensure you can have the easiest installation process possible!
Can I use my smartphone and its apps?
Absolutely every DIY Protection home alarm system comes with an app that allows you to arm and disarm your security system from almost anywhere in the world! That is why you will have a much better user experience if you can use a smartphone and your app. The app will not only allow you to arm and disarm your system, but it will also give you full updates on what is happening with your system. Want updates on which door in your home is open? The app will do that for you! Want an email notification when the security system is armed and disarmed? The app has you covered! In fact, the app is so advanced that it can even handle optional features such as showing you a live 24 hour a day camera stream, unlocking your front door or opening your garage door remotely. If you can install and use an app on your smartphone, your DIY Protection home security system can do almost anything you need it to do. And more importantly, you can do it all yourself.
