Improving home security systems? You’ve probably got two basic classes of option open to you. First, you can think about switching from a DIY system to a monitored one – and second you can think about changing the calibre of your equipment to bring you up to date.
Home security companies, like burglars, move with the times. As burglars find ways to circumvent or disable current systems, the companies that make them find ways to counteract the new habits of burglars. Keeping up with the arms race is your guarantee that your home security systems will continue to keep your property safe.
So what is the difference between a monitored and a Do It Yourself home security system? Monitored systems have a security company monitoring centre attached to them, which means that your home is being actively watched over at all times by employees of the company that made your security equipment. DIY home security systems, on the other hand. Are often self installed and have no external monitoring centre attached to them.
