home wireless security system

Whether you decide to go with a DIY system or opt for a professionally installed system, you'll have to pay a monthly or annual fee if you require monitoring, and in some cases, you'll be hit with a monthly fee to pay off the cost of hardware components. With most DIY systems, such as the SimpliSafe Home Security Kit, the Ring Alarm Security Kit, and the Nest Secure, you purchase the hardware outright and can avoid any monthly fees if you decide to self monitor. If you add monitoring, fees will vary: SimpliSafe charges $14. 99 per month for its no contract monitoring service, while Nest charges $29 per month. If you commit to a three year contract, the price of the Nest service drops to $19 per month. Ring's Protect Plus plan goes for $10 per month and doesn't require a contract. Monitoring for professionally installed systems tends to be more expensive. The ADT Pulse monitoring service starts at $28. 99 per month and requires a three year contract, but you also have to figure in the cost of things like hardware components, cellular backup, and installation. When we reviewed the Pulse system, our upfront cost was more than $3,000, with a monthly fee of over $60. Some vendors, such as LifeShield, will let you buy the components outright or lease them.

One disadvantage of the wireless system is that the components will eventually run out of battery life. It is therefore necessary to invest in a dependable battery backup system not only in case of emptying battery life but also to continue to protect your home even in the event of a power outage or a break in attempt by an intruder. Also, note that it is better to buy equipment that is powered by rechargeable batteries. They may have a larger upfront cost, but will prove to be more economical in the long run. Look for a system that notifies you or gives an alarm that can alert you if which batteries are running low. Or if you can, frequently test the components of your system and replace batteries regularly. Another disadvantage of a wireless configuration is the risk of faulty installation. Even though you don’t need any formal training to set up this system, there’s always the risk that you did not do it properly. When you hire a service provider, you can make sure that everything will be done correctly. Also, DIY home security systems don’t have the capability to connect to a professional monitoring service. This is a disadvantage when you’re out of town because emergency responders can’t be alerted when your alarm is tripped.
