With the multitude of home security providers on the market, it can be difficult to decide which system is right for you. Protect America offers a do-it-yourself style wireless security system that has two main advantages over the competition: savings and flexibility.

Savings

Our wireless security systems do not require a professional installer, which means no installation fees! It can often be quite costly and time consuming to pay for someone to come into your home and set up your security system for you. Our products are wireless and easy to set up, removing the need for you to pay any extra.

Not only is installation free, but so is the equipment itself. You are only responsible for paying the monthly service fee and we will ship you your equipment free of charge.

Installing your DIY Wireless Security System

There is no reason to be intimidated by the prospect of installing your own wireless security system. The process is very easy and our phone lines are always open with operators standing by, ready to help walk you through it. The first step is to place your Simon XT Panel in a central location. Because the alarm will sound from the panel, you will want to place it on the wall in an area of your home that is within earshot of the majority of rooms in your home. You will also want to make sure it is near the exterior door that you use most often, as you must type in your disarm code within 45 seconds of entering your home.

Next, install your door and window sensors at the points of entry most susceptible to a break-in. These sensors work by creating a magnetic field between them when they are near each other. Opening a door or window breaks the magnetic field and trips the alarm when the system is armed. As such, each sensor is comprised of one small and one large component that must be placed on either side of the at-risk opening. To apply, simply peel off the plastic film from the adhesive backing of each component. Place the large component on the door and the small component on the frame, making sure the arrows on each are facing each other. As always, feel free to call our toll-free number to speak to a representative.

Flexibility

We have put together a number of home bundles to ensure that you are getting the exact package that is right for your home. In addition to these plans, we offer a number of add-ons such as a flood sensor or a glass break sensor to ensure that your security system is impenetrable. The ability to personalize your system is what truly sets Protect America apart from the rest.
