Benefits of DIY Home Security

Easy installation for everyone

Setting up your security system is a breeze with our DIY approach.

No need for technical expertise; our user-friendly interface and detailed instructions eliminate the need for a professionally installed system, ensuring a hassle-free experience.

Flexibility and scalability

Our modular security system grows with your needs. Start with the basics and expand as you see fit.

Add indoor and outdoor security cameras, cloud storage, additional entry sensors or smart home integrations as your requirements evolve.

Monitoring Services & Remote access

Whether you choose a Full Monitoring or Lite Monitoring service, you can keep an eye on your home no matter where you are.

Use our self-monitoring Smart Connect app or web interface to receive alerts, view live camera feeds, and arm/disarm the security system from anywhere.

No long-term contracts

We offer flexible monitoring plans with no long-term commitments. Enjoy month-to-month monitoring with no obligation contracts. It's your choice.

Local alarm for immediate response

In addition to remote monitoring, our DIY home security system includes a local alarm built in the security panel that sounds when an intrusion is detected.

It's an added layer of security that can deter potential intruders.

The choice between a DIY or professional home alarm system depends on your specific needs and preferences.
