These days, anyone can find a security system to order and try to install it by themselves at home. While we understand the convenience and affordability of one of these at-home, DIY systems, we want to make sure you understand the possible risks you may face when you use one of these systems. Here are a few reasons why you need to think carefully before choosing a DIY security system:
Manufacturers with Little Experience
Did you know that in 2014, Google recalled over 400,000 smoke alarms? Smart home products are still relatively new to the market, so many of the potential problems are still being worked out. Many companies who sell these products are very strong technology companies, but they have little to no experience when it comes to security service products. When you need a new security device for your home, be sure that you check first with a professional security company that has a record of quality products and security service.
Your Home’s Individual Needs
Many of the home security systems have been built in a one-size-fits-all manner. Compare your home to one on the other side of town; you might have different entry points, risk areas, and concerns. Security professionals are prepared to find these areas and create a security system that will seal the cracks, so to speak.
Little to no Data Protection
Many security systems have no way to protect you from problems like cyber threats. Everything is connected these days, meaning it may be easier than you think for hackers to steal important and private information from homeowners like you.
