This post is the first of two describing do-it-yourself home security. Part two is here.
Now, more than ever, people are adding security systems to their homes. Technology has allowed for almost any family to find peace of mind with affordable, user-friendly home security systems. In an ever-changing world, homeowners can feel secure whether lounging on the couch or at work.
With a few simple steps, systems such as wireless video doorbells and security cameras can be installed and ready to use on the same day. With so many options available, the hard part will be selecting which one is right for your Lake City area home.
Many of these devices can be linked straight to your smartphone — eliminating the need for an outside company to do the monitoring. What’s even better, is most of these devices can allow the homeowner to be in charge of their safety, with little to no monthly fee at all.
One of the first things you should do, when choosing a home security system, is to pick a price point. You’ll need to decide how much money you would like to spend on the device itself, and if you want to incur any monthly charges. Since most of the new systems feed straight to your smartphone via an app—you’ll have to figure in the cost of the app for the initial purchase and if there are monthly fees associated with it. A good thing to do is read the reviews and see if the streaming company pulled a switch at some point down the road, and is now charging a fee per month.
