Are you someone who loves to pay to get a project done or totally do it yourself? At Steadfast, we have security options for both personalities! We offer professional installation and a DIY Security Kit you can set up on your own time. Recently, we launched our DIY Security Kits, so we thought it’d be a great idea to breakdown the pros and cons of both options. Each package is a strong security choice for your family, it just depends how much time you have and if you have fun installing cameras! 🙂 Let’s jump into the pros and cons…
Pros of Professional Security System Installation
My favorite perk of a professional install is the time you save! While the technician is installing your system, you could be ordering your weekly grocery pick up. These professionals know what they’re doing too. They will run through what each product does and make sure you know how to work each thing before they leave. This way, you don’t have to make any phone calls following the install. Ask away!
Another pro is you don’t have to know what you’re doing. You’re not installing! This avoids the situation of wondering if your system is actually up and working. Along with that, we can conduct a walk through of your home and recommend what security products will best work for you. You don’t have to do any of the thinking and we may recommend something you hadn’t thought of before! Lastly, we can replace an old system for you or trade out existing products as long as they are Honeywell, DSC, or an Interlogix system.
Cons of Professional Security System Install
There aren’t many cons of a professional install, but you will have to pay a flat rate of $99. Not bad, especially since you don’t have to lift a finger! In addition to that, you will have to schedule in sometime to let the technician install, but you can still work on your own to do list once they arrive.
Pros of Using DIY Security Kit
Our DIY Security Kit is perfect for someone who loves the tech side of things and being independent. Now, don’t get me wrong, you do not have to be a security product sales rep to understand how to set this thing up. If you have any questions during install, a professional technician can walk you through it step by step.
Another pro of a DIY kit is you build your kit completely online right here. We’ll ask you a few questions, suggest a base for your needs, and then you can personalize your system however you want. This could mean adding a smart thermostat or motion sensors to your cart! Ordering a DIY Security Kit is the best way to secure your home. Plus, if you wanted to install everything around midnight because that’s when the kids are down, whose gonna judge ya?!
Cons of Using DIY Security Kit
A DIY Kit is a great project for someone who loves the tech side of things. At the same time, you do not have to be tech savvy to follow our instructions for install! A con could be taking the time to set up the system. It is a straightforward process, but we will have a professional technician a call away if you have any questions. The good thing? You don’t have to pay the $99 install rate! One last con is you may wonder if the system is working correctly after you’re done. If you’re unsure, we can 100% double check for you! On a final note, the DIY Security Kit is the perfect option if you’re looking for protection and want quality products with a simple install. To build a kit now, click here.
