Traditional home security systems vs. do-it-yourself systems


DECIDE WHAT IS BEST FOR YOUR
FAMILY. FELICIA: SHAYNE WRIGHT
INVESTIGATES THE NEW AGE OF HOME
SECURITY.>>FROM THE 1970’S ALL THE WAY
UP TO THE CURRENT SYSTEMS. SHAYNE: FOR THE PAST 36 YEARS
SECURITY SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN JOE
HOSFORD’S EXPERTISE.>>THEY ARE A FORM OF
DETERRENCE. DO THEY KEEP PEOPLE OUT? NO. SHAYNE: HE’S NOW THE OWNER OF
ALWAYS SECURE ALARM PROTECTION,
A TRADITIONAL HOME SECURITY
COMPANY THAT SETS UP EVERYTHING
FOR YOU.>>YOU USED TO HAVE TO CRAWL
THROUGH THE ATTIC TO RUN WIRES. NOW BASICALLY YOU PUT A SET OF
BATTERIES IN, STICK IT ON THE
WINDOW AND YOU CAN BE OUT OF A
HOUSE IN AN HOUR. IT USED TO TAKE 48 HOURS TO
THREE DAYS TO DO ONE. SHAYNE: HE SAYS SOME OF THE
BENEFITS OF HAVING A TRADITIONAL
HOME SECURITY SYSTEM INCLUDE
HAVING A PROFESSIONAL DOING THE
INSTALL, TECHNICIANS ON CALL
24-7, AND THE COMPANY BEING LIABLE IN CASE SOMEONE BREAKS IN
AND THE ALARM DOESN’T GO OFF.>>THERE’S BEEN BREAK-INS AROUND
AND THEFTS. SHAYNE: BUT JACKIE LARISH IS
PART OF GROWING NUMBER PEOPLE
DITCHING TRADITIONAL SYSTEMS FOR
THE CHEAPER DO-IT-YOURSELF
SYSTEMS, LIKE RING, WHICH SHE’S
HAD FOR A YEAR NOW. A LOT OF DO-IT-YOURSELF AT HOME
SECURITY SYSTEMS ARE PRETTY EASY
TO INSTALL, YOU DON’T REALLY
HAVE TO BE AN EXPERT DO IT. WHEN IT COMES TO RING, IT ACTS
LIKE YOUR CAMERA AND DOORBELL AT
THE SAME TIME. SO, WHEN ANYONE COMES TO YOUR
DOOR AND PRESSES THE BUTTON, YOU
GET A CLEAR PICTURE OF WHO’S AT
YOUR DOOR, WHAT THEY WANT, AND
YOU CAN TALK TO THEM AS WELL.>>CAN I HELP YOU? WHO IS IT?>>WE RECOMMENDED IT TO MY
FRIEND DOWN THE STREET WHO LIVES
ALONE. IT MAKES HER FEEL A LOT BETTER. SHAYNE: OTHER POPULAR D.I.Y
SYSTEMS INCLUDE NEST AND
SIMPLISAFE. THEY’LL RUN YOU ANYWHERE BETWEEN
$200 AND $500 DEPENDING ON HOW
MANY SENSORS AND CAMERAS YOU
WANT. YOU CAN ALSO GET SOME OF THOSE
SYSTEMS MONITORED BY POLICE AND
FIRE DEPARTMENTS FOR A MONTHLY
FEE, SIMILAR TO TRADITIONAL
MONITORED SYSTEMS, BUT HOSFORD
SAYS KEEP THIS IN MIND.>>WHEN YOU GET THEM OVER THE
INTERNET DELIVERED TO YOU, YOU
HAVE TO TIE IT IN, YOU HAVE TO
PROGRAM IT. THEY SAY IT’S REAL EASY, WE HAVE
A LOT OF CUSTOMERS THAT HAVE
PROBLEMS TRYING TO GET THEM
TURNED ON. SHAYNE: WHATEVER ROUTE YOU TAKE,
DO YOUR RESEARCH AND PICK THE
ONE BEST FOR YOU. IT COULD MEAN THE DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN THE BAD GUY PICKING YOUR
HOUSE OR THE ONE NEXT DOOR. ANOTHER THING TO KEEP IN MIND IS
RECENT REPORTS OF PEOPLE HAC
