Author: Designed Atmospheres | | Categories: Home Automation , Security Systems , Surveillance Systems


Hi-tech CCTV cameras can help deter intruders from entering your property, sound the alarm if an attempted break-in occurs, and provide crucial evidence during a police investigation. Therefore, it’s essential to work with a professional security systems integrator that can create a robust security plan to keep your building secure. However, many people decide to DIY security installations to save money, which often compromises the safety of family members.

So, to help you avoid some basic errors that could prove costly, Designed Atmospheres has put together a list of the most common mistakes people make when installing security systems.

1. Purchasing off-the-shelf
When it comes to security cameras, the most common mistake is buying the DIY kit from a big box store, as they are not customized to your unique needs. You will also miss out on the professional assistance that a security systems integrator could provide.

2. Failing to plan
When planning a new home, it’s essential to consider how your home automation products will fit into your building so that you can drill the necessary holes for wiring. Remember that construction costs will be considerably less if you get it done right the first time.

3. Thinking short term
Electronics for home automation and security equipment can sometimes change twice a year. Therefore, it’s essential to look at where the industry is heading and plan accordingly to upgrade your system efficiently.
