Perfect how-to guide to security systems & electronics!
Because of the escalating threat of theft and violence in today's
world, planning, selecting and installing security systems to protect
your home and automobile are vital. Security is important to everyone,
to those who live alone as well as families. Security systems not only
deter crime and vandalism to property, but provide additional peace of
mind and personal security.
In addition, depending on the systems and how they are installed, modern
security systems can detect perimeter violation and entry intrusion, even
fire or medical emergencies. Installing a security system need not be
expensive. You can save money by installing a system yourself, and Security
Systems for Your Home and Automobile shows you how.
In simple, easy to understand language, Security Systems for Your Home and
Automobile tells you everything you need to know to select and install a
security system in your home or automobile with a minimum of tools.
