A famous saying (the author of which, sadly, remains unknown) states that “safety doesn’t happen by accident.” We couldn’t agree more. Be it your home, office, school, or shop, one of the most important decisions that you have to make is on your choice of Security system or company that will provide you with one.
According to the FBI’s Crime Report, more than 5,400 burglaries occur every day (or over 2 million a year), 73.9% of which target residential properties (mostly during the day), while the rest involve offices and commercial buildings (predominantly at night).
The options for security systems are plentiful. There are companies like ADT, Ackerman, and Vector Security, which would customize and install your system, supporting the monitoring thereafter. There are also companies that will sell you their solutions online, allowing for a seamless self-installation. It is the latter that we’d like to focus on in our today’s list. See your options below (and we hope that this list will find the ideal security system to fit your needs).

Lorex Technology — This company specializes on designing, developing, manufacturing, and distributing “that enhance perception and awareness.” Sensing solutions is their business, and they have an array of great solutions in their Security segment. These include “cameras and video recording systems for use in commercial, critical infrastructure, and home security applications.” Free shipping on orders over $3.99 deserves a mention too.
2. SimpliSafe Security Systems — This brand is trusted by over 200,000 people. You buy and install the equipment you need, and then get a 24/7 professional alarm monitoring “for less than 50 cents per day” and no annual contract or cancellation penalties.
3. Honeywell — It’s a brand most of us have learned to trust. You may pick their systems up at Lowes or at Home Depot (both in the US, and in Canada), or you may shop for their products online here.
