About Alarm system, electric, installation only

A home alarm system can protect you and your family as well as your home and belongings in the event of a burglary. Some home alarm systems are complex and requires professional installation, while others are easier installed. This page takes you through the general steps of how to install a home alarm system. Specific instructions will differ based on the alarm that you have chosen.



There are three general types of home alarm systems: a local home alarm, which sets off a local sound alarm in the case of a burglary, an auto-dial system which dials programmed numbers, such as 911, in the case of an emergency, and a monitored home alarm system, which is monitored by an agency. The functions of the monitored alarm system differ, but usually include the ability for the company to contact you if the alarm goes off and dispatch private security agents to your home. Most monitored home alarm systems will be installed by a professional. Regardless of the system, it's best to hire a professional to install your alarm system if you are not familiar with electrical installations, in order to avoid injuries and mistakes during the installation.
