Has anyone ever self installed a security system in your house? We have a Honeywell security system in our current house, but we are beginning the process of building a new house. I don't want to have to pay for monitoring service. That is why we don't want to use ADT or Honeywell etc. I've looked at a few websites that sell the door sensors, glass break sensors and control pads and it looks like similar stuff you would get with a "brand name" security system. I'm sure there are lots of other third party security system installers and this is probably what they use. I'm just not very familiar. I'm wanting to do the install myself to save money. I figure monitoring isn't really that necessary. When an intruder sets off the alarm, most of the time that is enough to get them to leave.
