Installing a total home security system has never been this easy or affordable. You can install a complete system with burglary, fire, carbon monoxide, freeze and water sensors in about two hours, without fishing a single wire. You can even add wireless video surveillance and get central-station monitoring for about half of what professional alarm companies charge.
Starter kits run about $200, but plan to spend around $500 to $800 to protect an average-size home.
Designing the right home security system requires some planning, so don’t rush out and buy a kit as your first step. You’ll wind up short on components you need and have extras that you might not use.
