That makes it a lot more convenient for people with busy schedules. But one problem with this kind of installation is that no one is there to walk you through how the system works. You also don’t have someone to help you get it hooked up, and if you have to work with customer service over the phone, it can become stressful. Still, there’s something that feels quite nice about being able to install the system yourself and to get it working right. Some security systems require incorporating your new system with your existing wiring which means you will need to have the right tools for the job. Anytime you’re dealing with wiring and electricity, you really need to know exactly what you’re doing and have the tools to do it properly. Otherwise, you could end up damaging your new equipment, your existing wiring, or creating a fire hazard if it is not installed properly. So unless you truly know what you’re doing, you should probably opt for professional installation, especially if your new security system will need to be hardwired. If you choose a DIY wireless security system, most on the market today are fairly intuitive and easy to install. And, many of them don’t require any special tools or knowledge to get the job done. Professional installation was practically the only way to put in a home security system 15 years ago.

You can view more of my blogs and editorials at the following websites:Donna Jodhan!I'm Jeff N marquis at the business desk and today I have a very sobering article to share with you. One that shows us that there are still countries out there that are choosing to deliberately trample upon the rights of the disabled. If you feel as strongly as I do, then please send your feedback to me at . I wish you a great weekend. Press releaseFor immediate release INCLUSION INTERNATIONAL CONDEMNS COMPULSORY STERILIZATION AND HIV TESTING OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES IN RWANDA AS A ABHORANT VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS July 6, 2009 Toronto Inclusion International II, a federation of 200 family based organizations advocating for the human rights of people with intellectual disabilities worldwide, calls on the international community to oppose a reproductive health bill introduced in the Rwandan Parliament. The proposed reproductive health bill includes provisions that would impose forced sterilization and mandatory HIV testing on people with intellectual disabilities. According to the newly introduced bill drafted by the parliamentary committee, physicians would be granted the right to test an "incapacitated" person without their consent and then disclose the testing results to their official guardian. These provisions would be in direct violation of the Rwandan governments ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities CRPD. Forced sterilization would not only violate the rights of persons with disabilities but is also regarded as a crime against humanity by the International Criminal Court. The mandatory testing of HIV and disclosure of results would infringe on privacy rights and lead to abuse. People with intellectual disabilities are among the most marginalized and vulnerable groups in our societies, measures such as those proposed by Rwanda despite their international obligations under the Convention, serve to dehumanize and devalue people.

These kits are generally expandable, meaning that you can add components at your convenience as your needs change, although you’ll want certainly want to consider compatibility and expansion options in the early stages of your home security system research. The DIY security systems reviewed in this article are self monitored, meaning that when devices and/or sensors are triggered, you’ll receive alerts or notifications directly. You will be responsible for contacting the appropriate emergency personnel as a result of those notifications; however, some DIY security system kits are offering professional monitoring services as an optional add on or on demand. Depending on the home security system’s components, installation might be as easy as using some double sided tape. Or it might be quite complex, requiring specialized tools and configurations. These would be your professionally installed security systems, which often provide 24/7 monitoring but may require multi year contracts. In addition, professional security systems communicate directly with emergency response teams, based upon the alerts or notifications received.
