It is always nice to get something for free. Or is it? We are bombarded with so many free offers that we tend to look at 'free' as a bad word. I'm sure that you have been spammed with many offers for free stuff. When it comes to home security systems, free does not mean that you will be getting anything less than top-of-the-line equipment and services. In order to see exactly what you can get for free, you might want to compare the monitoring companies yourself.

When you choose an alarm company for home security monitoring, you will most likely see that they are offering free equipment. This is similar to the satellite TV companies that offer free equipment. You see, they are really only interested in your monthly fee. So they are happy to get your services setup without charging you for the actual equipment.

If you decide to do it yourself, you certainly won't have anyone to foot the bill for the alarms and other devices that you will need to buy in order to get your security system installed. Indeed, there could be some benefits from installing your own home security system, just as there are certain benefits from having a home security monitoring company setup your home security. The choice is yours. Before you make that decision you may want to compare home monitoring services vs. self installation.

What Can You Get for Free?

The security monitoring companies will generally offer their complete systems for free or at a discounted price in exchange for your commitment to their services. This would include 'the brains' of the security system, various door and window alarms, motion detection cameras and other devices that are standard when it comes to the security of a home. Some security monitoring companies even offer installation free of charge. You can compare home security providers to see just what they do provide. For a better understanding of the equipment involved, you might want to see our section about equipment.

If you don't really care about getting free security equipment then you will either need to visit your local hardware store or shop for security equipment online. Our security devices section is a good place to start if you want to find the best places to shop online for DIY (Do it Yourself) security products. If you do decide to go this route then just keep in mind that you will need to do your homework and you will probably also need to have some handyman skills (It might be more difficult than it looks!).

Free vs. Cheap

To get right to the point, you get what you pay for. However, when it comes to home security products, free might be even better than cheap. The home security monitoring companies that offer free equipment are a good resource for quality products and security devices. With their reputation on the line, they do not want to install cheap security devices in your home. This is something to keep in mind if you are deciding between doing it yourself and having a monitoring company install a security system for you.

If you do decide to install your own security alarms, video cameras and other devices, you might want to think twice before you buy the cheapest equipment that you can find. After all, the security of your home and the well being of your loved ones is at stake! Would you trust a security system that costs $19.99? Would you feel secure when you were sleeping or when you were away from home? The point that I am trying to make is that if you decide to install your own home security system, don't buy the cheapest devices that you can find. Once again, do your homework in order to find out which brands are the most reliable. Shop around until you feel that you have found the products that you can trust.
