Factors to Consider When Buying a Home Security System

Factors to Consider When Buying a Home Security System

  • Price & Contracts

    Are you looking to pay for your equipment upfront or finance over a period of time? You’ll also need to decide whether you want to commit to a contract or have the freedom to cancel your provider’s service without penalty.

  • Monitoring

    Choose between 24/7 professional monitoring or self monitoring. Both have its perks – with professional monitoring, a specialist is available around the clock to help, and with self monitoring, you’ll be in charge and can avoid a monthly fee.

  • Installation

    Want a professional to install your security system for you, or would you rather install it on your own? Most providers either require professional installation, DIY installation, or offer a choice of both.

FAQs About Home Security Systems in Atlanta

FAQs About Home Security Systems in Atlanta

Should I install my own security system?

Taking a DIY approach works for a lot of things, but it is recommended to leave home security installation to professionals. Experts can often see ways to maximize the efficiency of your equipment and guarantee that your home security system is installed and working properly.

Why should I install a smart lock?

Aside from giving you one less key to worry about, smart locks increase the safety of your home by allowing the homeowner to control the lock from anywhere. This is especially handy if you are constantly leaving a “hidden key” around for a dog walker or visitors.

Will I need to sign a long-term contract?

Every company is different. While some companies will require a contract of a year or longer, there are companies that let you pay month-by-month with no penalties for cancelling your services at anytime. Make sure to ask when you call about any home security system.
