With either type of panel, you’ll need a special phone jack called an “RJ31X” to connect the panel to your phone lines. You won’t find professional quality alarm equipment at a local electronics retailer. Instead, fire up your computer and search for “security alarms” or “security systems. ” Look for suppliers that carry multiple brands and models so you don’t get locked into home security equipment that’s not right for you. In addition to good selection, look for a supplier that offers free system programming and technical support. Make sure the supplier doesn’t require a high cost, long term monitoring contract. Before you place an order, call the supplier and discuss your plan. The staff will help you develop a materials list and program the alarm panel appropriately. Ask to have the components labeled for each zone. Your DIY security system doesn’t have to be connected to a monitoring service that calls the police. It can simply trigger an alarm siren.
