Prepping For Your Security System Installation


Installation Day. No, it’s not a new holiday, or an action-packed sci-fi movie–it’s the day when your Indianapolis home finally gets the protection it needs in the form of a new security system. Because so much hinges on a proper installation, let’s take a look at a typical installation process so you can be prepared for your own security system installation.

Your security system installation can go smoothly with a little preparation.

Before Installation Day

In preparation for a security system installation, one of the most important things to do is to make sure you’re educated on both your options and your home’s needs.

When it comes to your security system options, Guardhouse has you covered. We partner with Honeywell Security, one of the most trusted names in home security, to provide you with a huge inventory of tools to keep your home safe. From exterior cameras and motion sensors to the latest in smart home automation, Guardhouse and Honeywell have the technology to maximize your safety and comfort, all with the convenience of Honeywell Total Connect remote access.

When deciding what it is you need out of your home security system, be sure to take advantage of the many resources available to you. Take our free Interactive Home Security Assessment to identify the risk areas of your home, and get a baseline in mind of what your ideal alarm system might entail. For an even more in-depth assessment, schedule an in-person consultation with a Guardhouse Security professional by calling 317-602-5777 and take a walk-through of your home with our security representative, so we can help identify your needs more readily and accurately than any other way.

On Installation Day

The day has finally arrived! Once you and your Guardhouse representative have nailed down a day and time that work for your schedule, it’s just a matter of waiting until your security system is installed. The typical home security system installation may last about 2-3 hours, but the installation process may be longer depending on if additional equipment needs to be installed, or if substantial wiring needs to be done.

Make sure you carve out some time in your schedule so that you and anybody else who might use the security system are home. Almost every homeowner we work with has at least a few questions, and installation day is the best time to get any of your home security questions answered, straight from the source.
