Self-Monitoring Home Security Systems: Advantages and Disadvantages

Homeowners have plenty of options when it comes to security systems. They can choose hard-wired or wireless. They can also choose from a wide variety of security features such as video cameras, motion detectors and smoke and fire alarms. Now, they also have the choice of paying a monitoring company to monitor the system or choosing to self-monitor the security system.

Smartphones, tablets and laptops have made it easy and convenient for homeowners to self-monitor security systems. With self-monitoring, the security system notifies the homeowner either through e-mails or text alerts when the system detects a break-in or other problem such as fire or smoke. Feed from video cameras can also stream to the homeowner's mobile device. The more features a system has, the more the homeowner can control and monitor. For example, with the right features, the homeowner can monitor and control lights, appliances and thermostats.

With today's high-tech systems, homeowners are able to monitor their security systems just as well as a monitoring company. In addition, the homeowner can do it from wherever he is, whether at work or on vacation.

There are both advantages and disadvantages to monitoring your own security system.
