The Complete Guide to Choosing the Best Home Security System
Do you find yourself feeling nervous or anxious every time that you lay your head on your pillow at night? Are you worried about the kids or the dog as soon as you drive away in the morning? If so, you need a home security system to give you peace of mind.
Doing so can help you have constant supervision over your home. You’ll be alerted of any abnormal activity so that you can either disregard or take further action.
See below for an in-depth guide on how to choose local alarm installers and why ADT security services are the best fit for your needs.
The Importance of Professional Installation
There are many options out there these days for self-installed home security systems, but that doesn’t mean they’re the right choice for your needs.
Even though you could install it yourself, it’s always better to have a security system installed by a licensed professional. Imagine trying to fix your car’s engine problem without having much experience in automotive mechanics. Wouldn’t it be better to let an actual mechanic do it?
A professional alarm installer knows what to look for and has the tools, understanding and resources to implement a solid security solution. They can take a look around your property and identify potential vulnerable points that you might not notice.
Professional installation also allows you access to better security system equipment from trusted manufactures such as Honeywell and DSC.
An experienced installer will also have a better understanding of the devices that you need to include in your customized home alarm system. For example, they might suggest things like motion detectors, glass-break sensors, sensors or contacts on your windows and doors, and so on.
Don’t put your home in a position of disruption. If there is a weakness in your DIY security system, you better believe burglars can find it. Reach out to an ADT authorized dealer to get your professional security alarm installed.
Why Choose an ADT Authorized Dealer?
It’s a great question! Why should you invest in an ADT authorized dealer when there are so many other DIY security systems and professional installers out there?
American District Telegraph (ADT) has stood the test of time. They’ve always been at the forefront of including the latest technology in their home and commercial security systems. In fact, they’ve been around for over 140 years.
They’re a trusted brand that’s helped protect millions of families from break-ins and other life and health-threatening situations. Whenever an emergency occurs, you can trust they’ll be there to help you out.
The reason you should choose an ADT authorized dealer is simple: nobody knows home security better than they do. They can assess your situation and determine the best devices to include in your package.
The home security system that they install will be custom-built for your family. Rather than using DIY security devices that don’t always work as planned, you can get a state of the art touch screen system that you can rely on…even if the power goes out!
Reach out to Direct Protection and you’ll discover for yourself that this is the path for you. You will find an installer with the knowledge and experience that you can trust.
What to Look for in a Home Security System
Even though it’s been mentioned a few times already, it bears worth repeating: you need to find a professional service to install your new home security system.
That said, there are a few things to look for in the home alarm system that you purchase. See below for a few things to point you in the right direction.
1. Collaboration With Your Smart Home
Even if you don’t have what you would consider a “smart home” just yet, it’s only a matter of time. A smart home can help you customize certain automation within your home such as opening and closing your motorized blinds or turning on the lights and TV to keep burglars away.
2. Professional Supervision
If you choose a DIY home security system and install it yourself, then guess who’s who gets to fix it when a part breaks?… you!
By going with an ADT authorized dealer, you’ll gain access to ADT’s professional supervision system. If the alarm goes off on your system, they’ll be able to analyze your situation, attempt to contact you and send local officials if necessary.
3. Customization of Your Needs
Not all home security systems are created equal. If you have a larger house, then you’ll need a larger security setup. If your home has many different entry points, you’ll need more security equipment to keep your property safe.
Anything you need for your home’s safety, ADT has you covered. They offer security cameras, smoke and heat detectors, security burglar alarms, and so much more.
