Why Professional Security is Better than DIY Security

By ProNet Security Tips Comments Off on Why Professional Security is Better than DIY Security

Whether you’re scrolling through social media or shopping on websites like Costco or Amazon, you’ve seen tons of ads boasting the validity of popular Do-it-Yourself (DIY) or self-installed security systems. While we agree that trendy, one-size-fits-all solutions may work well in some limited applications, we cannot stress enough how much better it is to have a professionally designed, installed, and monitored security system.

They’re Not As Budget-Friendly As You Think

Look, we completely get it! Maybe you’re a small business on a budget, or perhaps you’ve had to par down on business costs due to the pandemic. In these cases, DIY and self-installed security devices seem like a budget-friendly option. However, when commercial security threats are heightened, these systems are not nearly as comprehensive or dependable as a professionally installed and monitored solution — meaning countless dollars lost if vandalism, theft, or other incident occurs. A custom-designed security system specially designed to fill an individual business’ security gaps is always the better option. At ProNet, we believe there is no such thing as one size fits all – so there’s no way a trendy and basic DIY solution can stand up to your organization’s precise security needs.

DIY Doesn’t Stand Up To The Task

The truth is that these types of systems are not designed for commercial or even small business needs. Unlike professionally designed systems, DIY solutions can’t capture all of the detailed information required for accountability and liability purposes because video surveillance is relatively limited. Access control is an even more limited feature in DIY systems. While they are capable of notifying of a breach with a video clip sent to the owner’s smartphone, the lack of professional monitoring leaves them on their own to contact authorities or figure out what to do in the event there is an actual break-in or another incident.

When you choose a professionally installed system from ProNet Security Solutions, you’ll always have:

Unmatched & Ongoing Support

We hate to break it to you, but there’s nobody there to support you once you install a DIY system. Many of our existing customers switched to us from DIY options. Nearly all of them reported feeling like they had to jump through hoops when reaching out to customer support emails and phone numbers. With ProNet Security Solutions, we’re always available to assist you with questions, troubleshooting, or to help with upgrades as needs change, or you add space or new locations. 

Access to Industry Experts

As the COVID-19 pandemic rocked every industry last year and has carried that impact into this year, your organization and its needs have probably rapidly evolved. When ProNet Security Solutions designs and installs a system that matches your evolving needs, our management, consultants, sales team, and technicians always keep you informed of any security trends that may affect your business now and in the future. 

A DIY security solution may make you feel like you’re protected. But a professionally installed security system engineered specifically for your business can mean the difference between the highest levels of protection and a false sense of security. We’ve served a sophisticated and specialized clientele with high-security needs for over 30 years. With ProNet Security Solutions, we’ll make sure that you’re provided with comprehensive protection that meets your business needs.
