Ask to have the components labeled for each zone. Your DIY security system doesn’t have to be connected to a monitoring service that calls the police. It can simply trigger an alarm siren. But don’t dismiss the importance of alarm monitoring. Crime statistics show that burglars aren’t scared away by sirens. They know it will take at least three to five minutes for neighbors to call the police and just as long for police to respond to the call.

Glass breakage sensors are available too, but are optional. Most burglars only break glass in order to unlock a door or window. Then, when they open the door or window, a standard transmitter will detect the entry. Next, decide what kind of control panel you want. There are two types: A “cabinet style” panel consists of a keyboard that mounts near the door and a circuit board that mounts near your phone interface. A “self contained” panel is a single unit that mounts near the door. This one part panel is easier to install but has one weakness. An intruder entering through the door can tear it off the wall before the panel finishes notifying the monitoring service. With a two part panel, the circuit board keeps working even if the keypad is disconnected. With either type of panel, you’ll need a special phone jack called an “RJ31X” to connect the panel to your phone lines. You won’t find professional quality alarm equipment at a local electronics retailer.
