Find The Perfect System

Every home has a unique set of security needs, just as every person has a particular checklist of what they need to feel safe. Our DIY security systems let you decide what level of protection your home and family need.

Design Your System

How It Works

Once you’ve decided which products you need to keep your home safe, place an order and let our team get to work. Our technicians will preprogram your devices to communicate with one another before they leave our warehouse. When your system arrives, follow the included installation instructions to get it up and running in a matter of minutes.

We make sure our DIY security systems are easy to install. But technology of any kind can be intimidating for some people. That’s why we have a team of security specialists standing by to assist you over the phone. So even if you normally need help changing your clocks for Daylight Saving, we’re certain you’ll be able to install your new DIY security systems.

For the truly committed DIY-ers, those who feel like asking for help is cheating, we’ve also made a series of tutorial videos. These tutorials will teach you both how to install our products and how to use them, highlighting useful features that might otherwise go unnoticed.
