    I have not performed a DIY security system installation before. Are there certain things I should do beforehand or any tips on how to effectively install a do it yourself security system? My guess is the DIY security system company will give me instructions and help me out but I would like to get some reassurance before purchasing my system. You guys seem to know A LOT about security systems and especially DIY security systems so I figured I would ask here first.

    I once purchased a standalone security system from a hardware store. Just something to make noise if something happened. I had to use screws and a few wires to make everything work right. Will installing a DIY security system from one of these DIY security companies be similar? I thought I saw that no tools were needed but I’m unsure how that works exactly.
