    Do it yourself home security system?

    I see on Lowes website they have some do it yourself security stuff. Door, window and motion sensor alarms. Has anyone here done their own system without using one of those outside companies that want to have you pay monthly for them to monitor?

    Yes I have the one I posted on my acreage property. I also installed one for my Dad on his home.. I love it, the double sided tape works great if you buy the good 3M stuff. I went with Double sided tape in a few spots but screwed in the rest.

    I also like the idea of having a laser sensor at the entrance of a driveway that alerts you to someone coming on the property. I have a basic alarm in my apartment and it's not hooked up to the fire/police/ems, but I do have some night vision game cameras hidden in the house when it's not deer season...ha.

    Yes, I just finished installing those Punji Sticks but the holes in the floor are a PITA.

    A dog, lights, and a .45...just the basics.

    Some of the big security companies will offer great deals on alarm systems with a contract. What they don't tell you is that the alarm still works if you cancel the service or the contract runs out. The alarm will sound but it's just not monitored any longer. If you could get a free install and a 1-year contract, it may be worth your while looking into. After the year contract is up, cancel the police monitoring and you have yourself a professionally installed alarm system fairly cheap, depending on the deal you find and contract you sign.
