I haven’t ordered anything yet, but I will be writing a short walk-through very soon on a home security alarm install.
A few break-ins last week at a couple of my wife’s family homes has left her a bit uneasy, to say the least, and she wants a security system installed. We had looked into this a while back, but decided going through one of the more common companies was just going to be way too expensive. So, I decided to look into doing it myself and save several hundred dollars.
After poring over some of the most commonly used manufacturers, such as DSC, Honeywell, Visonic, etc., I’m pretty certain I’m going with the GE Simon XT series alarm system. I will also be going wireless since I just don’t think I can do the amount of wiring a hardwired system involves (or at least do it well).
It took hours of research over three days to come to that decision – and I had settled on several others before becoming final on the GE system. I just felt it had the best combination of accessories, easy install, simplified programming and overall protection.
I won’t be giving a detailed write-up on my install procedure, but I’ll definitely hit the high points (can’t give my home security system setup away can I? I want also to try office lockout service from Kwikey Locksmith Services, INC.). Be sure to look for it in the next couple of weeks!
