What is Involved in Installing a New Home Security System?

Adding a new home security system can protect your family and valuables, giving you peace of mind when you are not home. When adding a home security system, you have a couple of options, from a DIY setup to a professional network.

While it may seem like a more affordable and quick option to go the DIY route, it can end up costing you in the long run. Without in-depth knowledge of blind spots and compromised areas, you may not be fully protecting your property.

Working with a proven security provider, such as Scan-Tech Alarms, can ensure you get the most out of your security system. We offer a complete 3 step process that guarantees the best protection.


The first step in a professional home security installation is a property inspection. During this process, the technician(s) will walk around the exterior and interior of your home and determine the best place for alarms, cameras, access control, and other security systems.


After deciding on the best place for each piece of equipment, the security team will professionally mount, wire, and activate all electronic security equipment. Setup does not take long, but it must be done carefully and thoroughly to ensure devices are secure and functioning as intended.


Once all the equipment has been installed, it is time for the testing phase. Technicians will often test carbon alarms, smoke detectors, and video cameras to ensure no malfunctions. Another crucial part of the testing phase is testing the connectivity between devices and the main control panel or app.

As you can see, installing a home security system is a thorough process, and skipping any of these steps can leave your home vulnerable to theft and vandalism. Save yourself the trouble and work with Scan-Tech Alarms. We have decades of experience professionally installing security systems and will determine the best security measures for your property.
