Posted by guardianelectronics on Wed, 09/14/2011 - 11:29

Investing in an alarm system is a good option for added home security because it provides proven theft deterrence options as well as peace of mind. Taking the time to understand the types of security alarm systems available and exactly how they will improve your home security is important so you can purchase a system tailored to your needs and budget. Alarm systems can be wired or wireless. You must decide if you wish to install the system yourself or contract with a licensed installer.
A burglar alarm system can help protect your home by warning you and authorities of a possible intruder. It can really help you and your love ones avoid a face to face confrontation with a dangerous criminal. If you have been thinking twice about adding a home burglar alarm to your property you should not think it a third time. These systems have many devices that are aimed at detecting an intruder. Some of these devices detect if the burglar is trying to break open a window or door or if he is already inside the house lurking inside it. Some of these systems are also monitored. A Monitored burglar alarm contacts the monitoring company if the alarm is triggered and that company is responsible for giving the details about your property to security agencies or local authorities.
The Alarm Industry is very flexible right now, because of the competition. Look for the local alarms dealers and find out what they offering. Get quote from at least two different alarm companies.
I am an owner of a Local Burglar Alarm Dealer in MIAMI. and the price of the alarm installation is fix by the monthly monitoring payment and the length of the contract.
For example:
-Alarm System with no contract, you will pay the full installation price.
-Alarm System with 1 year contract, you will pay 50% of the full installation price.
-Alarm Systemwith 3 years contract, you will pay nothing ( $0 ), "FREE", in a basic installation package and you wil be charge for just parts price in any additional protection you may need.
The Alarm Companies actually invest in their customers, they recover their money during the term of the contract and start making profits generally after the first year.

Another option

There's another options to consider. Even though people might think it's difficult to make your own home security system, it's actually pretty simple. All you need is a computer and several IP cams which you'll use as security cameras. Then you manage them using video surveillance software (also cheap) and you get a DIY home monitoring system for cheap :) You can read the full details of the setup here.
