Like other residents, you may get roped into installing a DIY home security system in Beaumont. But that means you’re depending on your handiwork and troubleshooting skills, and your innate talent to hang the right sensor or camera in right spot. Some people can cobble together a security system that both looks and works well, and then there’s those that can make the entire house a hot mess.

If only we thought to ask ourselves before we started, what was better: a DIY home security system in Beaumont or a smart home system that’s expertly put in by Vivint?

What can you look forward to when you install a DIY security system in Beaumont?

One of the benefits of a DIY security package is that you're able to get singular devices over time. You can begin with only one camera or sensor, and then add devices in a piecemeal fashion from a slew of different companies. Depending on what brand you pick, setup can seem simple and a few newer systems can easily pair with your Echo or Google Home.

Here are a few other benefits of a DIY home security system in Beaumont:

  • Buying one-off alarms and cameras might initially save you money.

  • Equipment can be added a little at a time and with competing companies.

  • A nice solution for people that just want a simplified system like one motion detector or a smart lock.

  • Some DIY home security systems are simple to configure, as long as you understand where they should go.

Be aware that DIY security has a few issues:

  • A DIY home security system may be obsolete faster than a professional security package.

  • When you use different brands they may not “talk” in concert or link to one central Smart Hub.

  • You have to know the right placement for cameras, alarms, and sensors.

  • You have to do all the installation, troubleshooting, and upkeep. Troubleshooting with customer service can be a hassle.

  • Your low-cost security system might not have professional monitoring.

So should you do a Vivint home security system or get a DIY solution?

However, if you need a comprehensive system that seamlessly links motion sensors, HD cameras, and smart locks, you should consider a Vivint security system.
