home monitored security

We’re looking for an economical, DIY security system with a loud alarm/siren to alert us when were sleeping And to alert us if there is an intruder when we’re not home. We’d love your input/ recommendations!Would also love your thoughts/advice on self monitoring vs using a security company to monitor. Many thanks!KelliHi Kelli, You’re very welcome and thanks for reading!There are a bunch of different companies that have sirens I recommend SimpliSafe. However, if you self monitor with SimpliSafe, you won’t be able to control your system remotely, livestream footage, or receive notifications. 24/7 professional monitoring would be better for a family where all adults work full time and wouldn’t have time to contact emergency services if an alarm goes off. However, if you have someone that stays at home, self monitoring should be fine.

When deciding which type of security system to install, here are some of the basics that you should be looking at. These three components alone can range from minimalistic to advanced. The control unit is the main operating panel for your home security system. This unit receives the signals from the sensors placed around your home, and triggers the alarms or contacts the home security center to notify them of any trouble whenever appropriate. The control unit may be powered by electricity that runs in your home, or by battery power.
