Security systems can provide peace of mind for many homeowners. Security systems can detect breaches in doors and windows, pick up on motion inside the home, and contact emergency services directly in the event of an emergency. Security systems can malfunction like any other device, and while security companies can provide repair services, you can do some repairs yourself fairly easily.
Identify the problem. If you're getting a lot of false alarms from one area, inspect the area the alarm is registering to see if a door or window is loose or if something seems wrong with a sensor. Check your owner's manual to run a self-diagnostic from the main panel and it could tell you where the problem lies.
