About Us

Charles MarshHey, I’m Charles Marsh. After a break-in while I was out with my wife and kids, it became apparent that our home security wasn’t sufficient. I was not keen on paying monthly for armed response and so started investigating DIY home security alternatives.

As you can imagine, there are thousands of differing ideas online about how to best create a defense around your home and the ‘best’ possible equipment that you need to include as part of your home security. I have seen my fair share of everything from sound options to devices and strategies that are completely whacky.

This blog is in no way intended to be the supreme authority on the topic of DIY home security, but perhaps it can assist you in saving some precious time and the headache of sifting through the poor advice and options that I have had to sift through. 

You can expect to find some of the things I’ve learned along the way and comparisons I have made when considering various products. I hope that it helps you in you journey of securing your home.
