Security Systems

How much do security systems cost?

The cost of a security system can vary widely depending on several factors, including the type of system, the features included, the size of the property, and whether it’s professionally installed or a DIY (do-it-yourself) solution. Here are some general cost considerations:

DIY Security Systems:

Basic DIY security systems, which may include a few entry sensors and a central control panel, can start at around $100 to $200.

More advanced DIY systems with additional features such as cameras, smart home integration, and remote monitoring may range from $300 to $600 or more.

Professionally Installed Systems:
  • Professionally installed security systems typically involve higher upfront costs but may offer more advanced features.
  • Installation fees can range from $100 to $500 or more, depending on the complexity of the system and the provider.
  • Monthly monitoring fees for professional monitoring services often range from $20 to $50 or more.
Equipment Costs:
  • The cost of individual security system components can vary. For example, security cameras may range from $50 to several hundred dollars each.
  • Additional components such as motion detectors, door/window sensors, and smart locks contribute to the overall cost.
Monitoring Fees:
  • If you opt for professional monitoring services, you can expect to pay a monthly fee. This fee covers 24/7 monitoring by a security company, which can dispatch authorities in the event of an alarm.
  • Monitoring fees generally range from $10 to $50 per month, depending on the level of service and features.
Smart Home Integration:
  • If you want your security system to integrate with smart home devices, such as smart locks, thermostats, or voice assistants, there may be additional costs associated with compatible equipment. Contact us to learn more.
Wired vs. Wireless Systems:
  • Wired security systems may require professional installation and could involve higher installation costs due to the need for running wires.
  • Wireless systems, which are often DIY-friendly, may have lower installation costs but may require ongoing battery replacements for wireless sensors.
Additional Features:
  • Additional features like mobile app access, remote monitoring, video storage, and advanced analytics can contribute to the overall cost.

It’s important to consider both upfront costs and ongoing expenses, such as monitoring fees, when budgeting for a security system. Additionally, some providers offer package deals that may include equipment and installation in a bundled price.
