However, an old or faulty alarm system that doesn’t work as well as it should can have many unwanted consequences, such as:

4 Tips to Maintain Your Home Security System

In order to ensure that your home security system is functioning optimally, it requires regular maintenance. While your main control pad and monitoring service can help keep track of your home security system, you should conduct your only monthly inspections as well.

Here are 4 simple tips to help you maintain your home security system to ensure it’s working as well as it can to protect you and your family:

1. Perform Weekly Perimeter Checks

Once every 2 weeks, you should walk around your home and inspect the various aspects of your home security system to make sure that they are working well. Some of the things you should look at include:

  • Loosening of any motion detectors
  • The batteries in your wireless sensors
  • Rotting of any doors or window frames
  • Locks on your doors and windows

Bonus Tip: Your home security system is only as strong as its weakest component, which is why it’s so critical to make sure all the aspects are working well.


2. Inspect Your IP Cameras

If you have included IP cameras in your home security system, make sure to examine them daily to make sure that they are aimed properly, that they have power, and that they have not been vandalized. It’s also important to check your recording and monitoring devices to verify that each camera is getting an image and recording properly.


3. Check Your Lights

Checking your exterior lights and making sure that they are working properly and have functioning light bulbs is very important because poorly lit spaces will:

  • Increase the likelihood of accidents and injuries
  • Invite crime
  • Make it difficult for you to identify any strangers outside your home
  • Make you and your family feel vulnerable and unsafe in your home

Bonus Tip: Sometimes, the wind can cause your security lighting to shift slightly, so they won’t be aimed correctly. Remember to readjust them whenever is needed to ensure maximum efficiency.

4. Invest in Annual Inspections

Your regular checks are important to prevent any major malfunctions in your home security system, but an annual inspection from a qualified technician can ensure that everything stays running and it will increase the life expectancy of your system, thereby lowering your long-term costs.

During this inspection, your home security professional will:

  • Suggest if any software updates are needed
  • Replace or repair anything that isn’t performing as well as it should
  • Perform a thorough check on all home automation components, power supplies, wires, and sensors.

Many security companies offer annual inspections, and it’s important to invest in this as it will prevent more expensive repairs and replacements down the road, but more critically, it will reduce the risk of your system failing when you need it the most.
