Some home security systems are DIY; however, there are many reasons to consider engaging a security system company that provides free installation of all equipment as part of their service.

Three things to consider when selecting a home security installation service

Before you let a stranger into your home to install security cameras, be sure to do your homework. Here are some initial points to consider as you review the job specifications with your installer:

  • Think about interior vs. exterior equipment needs: Consider weatherproofing, wind resistance, and any overhanging branches when you determine the placement of your outdoor cameras.

  • Obtain a 360-degree view of your home and property. If your cameras are not capturing the traffic in and out of all your doorways, they will not be very useful. Capture views of the streets in front of your home and the sidewalks or paths leading up to it.

  • Incorporate motion detection systems with surveillance cameras. This provides you alerts in the event someone enters your home.

Make sure your contractor is licensed, bonded, and insured

Be sure to research the reputation of your home security camera installer, too. While you can use sites like Angie’s List that provide honest reviews, it’s a good idea to ask for personal references, too, as well as proof of insurance, bonding, and a copy of the installer’s license. Make sure to note the installer’s license number and keep it in a safe place in case you need it for future reference.

Of course, you can avoid the hassle of both a DIY project and finding a reputable contractor by hiring a full-service security firm.
