“I just don’t have enough hours in my day!” It’s a common refrain these days. So, if you’re looking for an alarm system with advanced technology, consider convenience among other factors influencing your decision. For example, waiting at home for an installation team to show up and complete the work is a hassle. If you’re handy with power tools, you may decide that a do-it-yourself alarm system would better fit your needs.

First, you have to decide if you're comfortable setting up your home alarm system on your own. If so, it opens up your options and can save you money. Next, consider the following factors impacting installation time:

How Long Does It Take to Self-install a Home Alarm System?

When you purchase a do-it-yourself alarm system, you can do it on your own time, and you can always call the company for assistance if you get stuck. Many of our customers report that it takes about 30 minutes to an hour and a half to install a DIY alarm. So, you can protect your family with the best home security system without giving up an entire day.

To speed up the process, take everything out of the box and gather the required tools. It’s a good idea to factor in some extra time in case you need to call tech support.

Tech support will ask for this information when you call for assistance.
