Common Issues With Home Security Systems

Do you currently utilize a home security system at your home in New York or Connecticut? How’s it working? What are some common issues to fix with home security systems?


Perhaps you have a home security system that works well, but it doesn’t cover your entire home in a way you’d like it to– and that can be frustrating. Sometimes people purchase a system that’s just too small for their home’s needs. They might also be using more than one security system and they’re not compatible or collaborative, and that can be an issue. Maybe you own security products from different companies and they’re simply incompatible. When this is the case, it’s a good idea to have a professional company evaluate what’s going on, finding weak spots and making adjustments or upgrades, as needed, to improve the coverage.

False Alarms

Sometimes systems experience false alarms. This is usually due to a system being improperly installed, and it’s unfortunately triggered by a certain sound or movement that unintentionally sets it off. To prevent false alarms, consider asking professionals to check to make sure your system is properly installed, as well as maintained such that it’s functioning correctly.


What about the times when a system won’t alarm– or won’t disarm? Oftentimes, this can occur when a window or door isn’t shut properly. If that’s not the case, and you’ve checked all the doors and windows to make sure they’re shut, then you might need to have a professional inspect the system to find the cause of the problem.

Broken Part

Finally, maybe your current system hasn’t been maintained and that’s why it’s not working the way you expect it to– you might need a battery change or a replacement part installed.
