Affordable Security - A Do-It-Yourself Guide to Protecting Your Home, Business, and Automobile
Affordable Security - A Do-It-Yourself Guide to Protecting Your Home, Business, and Automobile by Steven Hampton.
In this complete, hands-on guide, security expert Steven Hampton, author of Modern High-Security Locks, tells you everything you need to know to secure your home, business, car and more – without breaking the bank!
Affordable Security offers all the tips and insider advice of the top-notch security seminars at a fraction of the cost, from basic, practical, low-tech security measures that have withstood the test of time to sophisticated commercial perimeter alarm systems and motion detectors.
Hampton walks you through a thorough evaluation of your security status, using “security review checklists” that will help you assess your property’s vulnerability from every angle, just as a security professional – or a professional burglar – would.
Once you’ve identified the holes in your security, Hampton shows you how to shore it up, from securing doors, windows, yards, sheds and garages using simple but little-known tricks of the trade to creating safe and effective indoor and outdoor lighting solutions to selecting the right type of perimeter alarm system and motion detectors to meet your needs.
Finally, he examines the pros and cons of professional versus do-it-yourself alarm installation, including a complete crash course in installing your own system for those so inclined. 8 ½ x 11, softcover, photos, illus., 312 pp.
