What is the Best Value in a Home Security System?

Almost all homeowners realize how vulnerable they are to burglary and home invasion. That is why so many install home security systems either on their own or have it done professionally. To be honest a professional installation is great if you have the money, but you can do just as well with a DIY (do-it-yourself) home security system.

There are many of them out there to choose from so here we’re going to take a look at and compare a couple of systems so you can decide which is the best value in a home security system.

The first one has been around for a long time and has no monthly monitoring fees. It is wireless and simple to install. It features an auto dialer that calls up to five numbers when any of the motion sensors are triggered. It has a main base control unit with programmable keypad and 105 dB alarm siren. It also has one wireless window/door sensor with a range of up to 300 feet to the base unit. It also includes a motion detector sensor that has a detection range up to 8 yards or about 25 feet. The system comes with one remote that you can use to arm or disarm the unit.

The second one is the Laser Shield home security system. It is a little bit more expensive but to our way of thinking is a better value. This system protects an area up to 1200 square feet and has four emergency panic buttons. It comes with one master alarm unit that has a 105 dB siren, a wireless detection unit, motion sensor with panic button and two keychain remote controls each with panic buttons. This system is unique because it offers as an option live monitoring service for $24.95 a month with a $25 activation fee. Under normal conditions, Laser Shield reports the fastest response time in the alarm industry initiating a return phone call within 30 seconds after receiving an alarm signal. This is a feature not offered by any other company.

The third one is the Alert First wireless alarm system that sends an alert up to six phones. This is different from any other in that it has a 2.8 inch LCD screen that allows you to see video from the built-in DVR. It is a complete do-it-yourself security system that has a motion detection feature. It offers you complete peace of mind that your property is secure. There is no activation fee, monthly fee or third-party service involved.

The Alert First Security system has a DVR to record what is going on.

The Laser Shield Security system offers 24/7 monitoring as an option.
