home security systems review
Some components are expensive. Bottom Line: The LifeShield Smart Home Security Kit is a versatile security system with home automation capabilities and the option to monitor professionally or on your own. Read ReviewThe wireless home security systems of 20 years ago were notoriously unreliable. They produced so many false alarms that many homeowners stopped using
them. That’s all changed. Today you can buy DIY home security systems that have professional grade wireless security equipment that’s extremely reliable, easy to install and affordable. Basic
DIY home security systems start at about $225 and top out at $800 or so. If you add wireless smoke/heat detectors, plan to spend about $1,300 for DIY alarm systems. That’s about half of what a professional alarm company would charge. Monitoring service, which notifies the police or fire department, can cost $40 or more per month. But if you shop around, you can get it for about $10 per month.
