CPI Security Proud Partners

CPI Security vs. Do-It-Yourself Security

First and foremost, traditional home security systems are typically more reliable and effective than DIY options. That’s because they are installed by professional technicians who have years of experience in the industry. All CPI professionals are thoroughly trained and licensed, we do not subcontract any employees. Our experts know exactly where to place sensors, cameras, and other security devices to provide maximum coverage and protection for your home.

Another benefit of traditional home security is 24/7 alarm monitoring services. That means that if an alarm is triggered, our Central Station will be notified immediately, triggering audio & video verification, and can dispatch emergency services to your home if needed with a verified alarm. This provides an added layer of protection and peace of mind that not all DIY options provide. Some DIY choices may offer monitoring at an additional cost, however CPI Security has been providing Real Time Response℠ and fostering relationships with your local police, fire, and emergency services personnel for over 30 years.

In addition to being more reliable and effective, CPI Security offers remote access and control, and smart home automation, all from the convenience of our easy-to-use inTouch™ app. Whereas some DIY solutions now offer similar features, many are managed through multiple apps – and you are responsible for integrating and managing these solutions yourself. CPI technicians will walk you through setup during installation, and we offer local, dedicated support for all your needs.

Finally, traditional home security systems can actually save you money in the long run. While DIY systems may seem cheaper upfront, they often require ongoing maintenance and updates that can add up over time. Additionally, many homeowners insurance policies offer discounts for homes with professionally monitored security systems installed, which can help offset the cost of the system itself.

So, if you’re looking for the best possible protection for your home and family, don’t settle for a DIY solution. Choose a CPI smart home security system and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your home is safe and secure, 24/7.
