Wireless Security Home System
Do it yourself alarm systems
If you watch or read the news, I don’t have to tell you about crime. Home burglaries are on the rise, most likely due to the depressed economy. Many people are desperate for money, so they’re trying their hand at crime. They want your stuff! Sorry, I have sympathy for people who are down on their luck, so I give to charities. I don’t want them in my home!
If you’ve ever been the victim of a home burglary, you know how frightening it can be. Our home was burglarized several years ago, and it was a terrible experience. Thank goodness no one was home at the time. Even so, I felt totally violated by the fact that strangers had forced their way into my home! And the thieves took items that can never be replaced.
Even scarier, burglaries can turn deadly. When I lived in another section of the state, our neighbors, who were my husband’s cousins, were killed in a botched burglary. The criminals thought no one was home and that the house would be an easy job. The two men broke into the house one Saturday morning, and they were surprised by the man of the house. They shot him eleven times and stabbed him twenty-two times when he confronted them in the kitchen. He was an ex-marine and was doing everything he could to protect his loved ones. Next, they killed the wife and the nine-year-old son as they tried to escape through a window. If the family had had a security home alarm system, they would still be alive today.
A security home alarm guards your home when you can’t. It’s there, 24-7. It never sleeps. It never gets tired. It’s always watchful and on duty. It functions as your eyes and ears. It effectively and efficiently protects not only your home and all your belongings, but more importantly, your family and you.
Alarm systems have come a long way in the last couple of years. The typical older security home alarm requires wiring and tearing into sheetrock and insulation. A technical genius has to program the system and then teach it to you, which is no small feat. Even some of the newer systems are often set off accidentally by the family dog. The older video home security systems are very effective, but who can afford those? Also, even the older basic security systems are often cost prohibitive. In other words, they cost an arm and a leg.
Enter the wireless security home system. These things are amazing! Most of the systems come with an instructional video and an easy-to-understand instructional manual. You can set the whole thing up yourself in minutes, without having to remodel your house. These are great do it yourself alarm systems!
How do these work? With the basic wireless security home system, you just place the magnetic contact transmitter alarms at doors and windows. When one of these transmitters is triggered, it sends a message to the system keypad, alerting you. Even if you’re not home at the time, you’ll be notified by phone or by email.
And this part blows my mind: you can buy a wireless security home system that comes with motion detectors that can distinguish between a human and a pet! No more worrying about Rover or Fluffy setting off the alarm! How does it know?
Best of all is the price. You can get a wireless security home system basic package for less than $200. You can start out with the basics and add to the system later. The keypad comes pre-programmed, but it’s designed for you to easily add more door and window transmitters, and you can also add cameras to make video home security systems. You can also add another package that allows you to see your home when you’re away, via a web connection. The system can also be armed and disarmed from a keyfob control, making it super convenient.
With one of these systems, you can turn on and off an external siren, lights, televisions, appliances, and your heating/air conditioning system even when you’re not home. Just use a land phone, a cell phone, or the internet. Imagine the peace of mind you’ll enjoy when you’re out of town on business or a family vacation! You can even program the system to alert you when the kids get home from school, and leave audio messages for other family members.
Other ways a wireless security home system protects your home is by alerting you when there’s a fire, flooding, smoke, a gas leak, or whenever a window or other glass is broken.
These new wireless systems are getting rave reviews. Users report that the system is easy to install. Some users recommend placing the keypad in a closet so that it’s not readily discovered by an intruder.
Many of these systems offer a 30-day money-back guarantee – if you’re not happy with the system for any reason, you can get a refund. Lifetime technical support is also provided.
Some of the best wireless home security systems on the market include the Visonic Powermax Wireless Security Home System, the DSC Power Series 9047 Wireless Alarm Kit, the Honeywell LYNXRPK-2 Wireless Self-Contained Security System, the RWSALVP08USH Wisdom Wireless Security Home System, and the GE Simon XT Wireless Security Home System.
In addition to the safety and security issues, there’s another good reason to buy a security home alarm: most homeowners’ insurance companies will give you a discount on your premiums. See? They know how effective such a system can be in protecting you and your home from disaster.
Take some time to truly consider purchasing a wireless security home system. Think price versus value. These new systems are incredibly inexpensive, and they can provide with immense peace of mind. By expanding your basic package with one of the video home security systems and the other extras available, you’ll have all your bases covered. You can do it yourself and save both your arm and your leg!
