The entire installation process of a wireless alarm system can be completed in as little as 20 minutes, depending on the specific system model and size of the home.

Companies that specialize in wireless self install home security systems, like Protect America, usually provide technical assistance with the installation process. In addition to an installation manual and easy to follow DVD guide, Protect America also has trained home security experts ready to walk customers through the process.

However, wireless home security systems are lauded for their ease-of-use and reliability.

Self Installed Home Security Systems- Wired

Self installed wired home alarm systems are not offered by home security companies. Installation of a wired home security system is a complicated task that has to be completed by professionals. Many of the larger home security companies, like ADT, only offer wired home security systems.

If you live in a home with a preexisting wired home security system, some companies, like Protect America, can “take over” that system through a cellular conversion device. This incredibly convenient gadget allows Protect America to monitor your home, ensuring peace of mind whether you’re sleeping or just at work.

With a self installed home security system, there are no additional security threats due to a technician visiting your home. Robberies often happen after maintenance workers and other professionals have visited a home.

When a customer installs their own wireless security system, they have a greater understanding of how it works and how to use it properly.
