Are There Different Types of Home Security Systems?

There are several different brands of home security systems, each offering unique packages and features. There are two main types of systems to choose from, each allowing you to decide how involved you want to be in the process. At Deboo Insurance Agency Inc. the agents are available to help residents in the Deerfield Beach, FL area choose a system that will meet their individual needs. 


Do-it-yourself systems are ideal for homeowners who want to install their own system and monitor it on their own. These systems normally include a downloadable app that allows the user to connect with their system through a secure cellular or Wi-Fi connection. Do-it-yourself systems are easy to operate and vary in the degree of sophistication. Some may include video cameras with motion detectors, while others include environmental hazard detection devices as well.

Professional Home Security

Professional home security systems are set up to be installed by a professional technician and monitored by a third-party monitoring service. While a do-it-yourself system requires the homeowner to call 9-1-1 if an emergency occurs, a professionally monitored system takes care of all the details and will also send notifications to the homeowner’s cell phone.

Knowing what is available and what each system is capable of will allow homeowners to choose a system they are comfortable with.
