The plans located on the DIY Alarm Forum web site are designed to familiarize homeowners with home security system components and provide a basic understanding of how these devices can be employed effectively. Whether homeowners are considering installing a home security system themselves or will rely on alarm company professionals, these plans can help put them at ease with terms such as control panels, keypads, motion detectors, glass break detectors and magnetic contacts.
The plans can also assist new homeowners who already have an existing alarm system installed. Often, a new homeowner may not know the location of all of the system's components or understand how they function.
"These plans are not intended as a tutorial on home security system design. However, the layouts can help customers become educated consumers before calling professional alarm companies for an installation. Having a basic understanding of alarm system components helps homeowners discuss their needs with the alarm company" said Dave Guianen of DIY Alarm Forum (http://www.diyalarmforum.com/
The complete resource is available on the DIY Alarm Forum website at: http://www.diyalarmforum.com/#
In addition to information on installing a home or business alarm system, the forum also has an alarm company directory full of local recommendations on home security systems and local alarm installation companies. To give users peace of mind when choosing an alarm company for their home or business, each of the companies in the database is a trusted forum member or has been recommended by a member.
"Whether our users are looking for help installing a complete system or just need a company to provide monitoring service, they can rest assured knowing we're looking out for their needs," said Guianen.
