Do It Yourself – DIY Home Security Systems Do Not Require Home Phone Line

Do it yourself home security systems are alarm systems that people install themselves. There are varying degrees a user can take control of their home security system but they do not have a home phone line and no broadband line. A true do it yourself home security system simply involves purchasing an alarm system from a retailer, installing it, and handling the monitoring without outside assistance.

A few home security companies, such as Protect America, sell alarm systems that users can install themselves and are DIY home security systems that do not require home phone. However, these companies almost always require a customer sign up for a monitoring solution. While some users might not find this approach appealing, the plus side is that these companies generally provide the equipment for free. Protect America, for example, gives customers enough equipment to protect every point of entry on their home for no cost when they sigh up for a monitoring solution.

Is a Do It Yourself Home Security System Right for Me? Do I need Home Phone or is it not required?

This is an important question any potential DIY home security system user should ask. In general, home security customers should only consider a DIY alarm system if they feel comfortable with technology. Installing and monitoring a do it yourself home alarm system can be difficult for anyone that’s not comfortable with technology.

Self-install DIY home security systems that do not require a home phone, like the ones sold by Protect America, are more accessible to a wider range of customers because they are designed to be installed without help from professionals. Any decent home security company offering self-install systems will have trained representatives available via phone or live chat to help with the installation process. In addition to installation professionals, Protect America also offers a how-to DVD, helpful YouTube videos, and an installation manual.
