DIY and Self Installation in Greater New Orleans, North Shore & Gulf Coast

We have seen an influx of DIY “Big Box” Security Systems enter the marketplace over the last few years.
Technology has proven to be easy to use and install, and cost effective for the consumer.

In fact, APS launched our popular Self-Install Security System for these very reasons. Our customers love the option because it saves money, time, and it’s hassle-free. Additionally, the system works great. It’s the same professional system our technicians install in homes every day with the same great professional monitoring, and all the benefits that every APS customer receives: award winning service and 24/7 technical support.
