Since launching our DIY Security program, we’ve been getting more and more calls and emails asking us how it works, and if it’s really that easy? ABSOLUTELY! Anyone can do it.

There was a day when you legitimately needed a certified alarm installer, but that’s all changing. Today’s Home Security Systems are nearly plug and play.  And just to be sure you’re comfortable, we do a lot of the heavy lifting for you.

Even cooler is that we’re using the most popular Home Security System on the marke; not some run of the mil system. As an added bonus, it works with a number of today’s popular Smart Home products.  More on that in a minute.

So real quick, I want to show you how it all works, and why you’re going to love it.

How Our DIY Program Works

Step 1: Design and Purchase.  First things first, we need you to design and purchase your system.  We’ve got some great resources for you if you want to research your options.  You can also call or email us and we’ll answer any or your questions about the right system design for your needs. Once you’ve approved the system and design, we’ll add it to an online cart for you to finalize.  And then the fun begins.

Step 2: We Program it.  After we receiver your purchase, we’ll contact you for basic information we need to program your system.  We actually preprogram your entire Security System.  Don’t worry, if you’re excited to program your own system you’ll still be able to, but we ship the system preprogrammed for our Clients who are a little intimidated by that part of the process.

Step 3: You Install it. When you receive your Security System, it’s all programmed and ready to go.  All you have to do is plug in the keypad, and install the sensors. The keypad sits on a counter, and plugs into an outlet on the wall.  As soon as it turns on it’s ready to go.  The sensors will all be labeled for placement, Front Door, Back Door, and so on. We provide basic directions, and videos on YouTube, but we doubt you’ll need them.

It’s so simple, most people in our space call it ‘lick and stick.’ As a last resort, you can always call us and we’ll walk you through any questions you have. For privacy and security, there are some basic things like your security code that we’ll have you add in after your receive the system. Otherwise, as soon as you have the keypad powered on and the sensors placed the system will be running.

Step 4 (Optional): Setting up your Security Monitoring. For those electing Security Monitoring, there’s one final step to verify your system is actually sending signals to the monitoring station. It’s actually kind of fun.  You deliberately set off your alarm system, and verify that all the sensors are working properly.  This usually takes 5-10 minutes, and then your system is up and running with monitoring.

We Know Security

Don’t worry, I won’t belabor this too much, but we’ve been in the Home Security business for a long time.  The company has more than 40 years combined experience, and thousands of Home Security Clients.

We started out in Home Security, and slowly grew into Smart Homes and Audio/Video.  Today, we’re an award winning Smart Home and Home Theater company, but we still sell and service a variety of Home Security systems for our clients.

That’s why we’re so excited about this service.  We’re passionate about both Home Security and Smart Homes, and this particular system gives you options for both.

Meet Your System

So lets talk about the system you get with this service.  It’s arguably the most popular Security system on the market.  The GC3 from 2GIG technologies.  It’s a touchscreen keypad, and it pairs with Alarm.com’s mobile app.

You get a top of the line Security System, and thanks to Alarm.com you also have the option to add many of the popular Smart Home products like Nest Thermostat, Skybell Video Doorbell, Lutron Lighting, & Amazon.

Now we’ve put together a base system to get you started.  We’ve worked hard to give you the best deal we possibly can, in fact we’re practically giving it away.  There are cheaper DIY systems out there, but we believe for the price, this is the best value on the market, and we think you’ll agree.

Here’s what comes with the Base System:
