DIY alarm installation can save you a fortune while also enabling you to take control of your home security experience. Of course, you’re going to need more than your hands to get the job done, and Home Security Store has all the professional alarm tools you need to take all of the drama and frustration out of the installation process.
When gathering the necessary tools, wire cutters should be pretty high on your list. Unless your system is 100 percent wireless, you’re definitely going to need a reliable pair capable of flawlessly stripping six standard wire sizes. Your cutters will be used to strip the wires that span from the control panel to the motion detectors, sensors and transformers. Depending on your configuration, you may require multi-conductor cable cutters to cut wire and coaxial cable.
Wire and Cable Staple Guns
Once you have your wire cutters ready to go, you’re going to need a wire and cable staple gun. This device shoots insulated staples (sold separately), thereby allowing you to affix the wire to the wall and the wire outline. In some cases, you may also require electrical tape.
You’re going to need a series of quality drill bits for screwing and unscrewing your motion detectors, sensors, control panel battery holders and other components. A screwdriver can get the job done, but if you really want to make your job easier, you’ll definitely need a quality a drill. When drilling, always remember to wear protective goggles and gloves.
Of course, there are a number of other optional tools that can make your installation efforts much easier. For instance, Home Security Store sells glassbreak sensor testers, which accurately emit glass-breaking sounds. So if you need to ensure that your glassbreak sensor is functioning properly, you can easily find out.
