Before selecting a home security system, you will need to take inventory of your home and decide what your primary security needs are. Do an evaluation of your home to figure out exactly how many doors and windows will need to be monitored by your security system. Doing this preliminary research will make you more educated about your home and what is necessary in order to protect it from intruders and break ins.
In addition to deciding where you need to place the sensors, you will also have to determine the right places for your keypads and control panel to go. Keypads, which are used to activate and deactivate your system, should go in convenient places like near bedrooms and the front and back doors.
