The most critical feature of do it yourself home security systems is having adequate surveillance, as this is the best deterrent to criminals. By surveillance I am talking about security cameras that are visible to would-be burglars, which then discourage them from breaking in. These can be cameras that are placed both inside or outside; ideally you should have both.
Whilst you might think that a security camera system will be cripplingly expensive, you are actually not quite right. Yes, if you purchase a system it will cost you large sums of money- however, if you actually build your own do it yourself home security camera system then you can have a fully functioning surveillance system for less than a third of the cost of buying even a basic, inferior quality one.
