When people think that their home or neighborhood security has been compromised, they often seek do it yourself security system solutions. Unless the clients don’t have a lot of time but a lot of resources, installing their own measures and equipment is the usual way to go.
Sometimes, understanding the measures a client has put into his own home is the only way for them to completely utilize the security system. When do it yourself security systems are mentioned, it’s easy for people to think about home owners installing their own cameras and alarms. Although this may be possible, it isn’t the only way to beef up home security.
The one thing clients should concentrate on when using DIY security systems is point of entry. It’s important to look at doors, windows, gates and other openings in the house. Jambs may be reinforced and grills may be installed to reinforce the home from outside intrusion. The main door should also be reinforced and have more than one lock. Most homes only have a heavy door and a knob lock that is more decoration than security. Experts advise home owners to install a second lock, preferably a deadbolt that cannot be opened without a key from both sides. A double sided deadbolt is the most secure anyone can get since this protects the home owners from outside intruders and allows them to lock in people they don’t want getting out.
Home owners should also keep in mind that the quality of the door is also important when they want to strengthen their security. Even if a door is equipped with numerous locks, weak structure that comes about when people use soft wood or thin materials make the locks liabilities. Intruders can just kick down the thin door while the many locks anchor the edges in place.
Another problem that home owners face when they want to install a DIY security system is the brand of devices they should use. Although there are a lot of companies who provide DIY home security systems, clients need extra, valuable and reliable information on these companies.
