We are happy to welcome you to our security house installation guide. This article will introduce you to the basics of installing a home security system and provide helpful tips that can make the process easier!
Find a Great Location
The first step to setting up your security house installation is finding the right location. You’ll want to find a place in your home that meets all of these criteria:
- Safe and secure
- Easy to access, but not too visible from outside your house (if possible)
- Has enough space for an alarm box, keypad(s), motion sensor(s) and other devices
Build the Frame
Now that you have chosen a location, it’s time to build the frame. You will need:
- Two-by-fours for the base and sides of your security house.
- Plywood for roofing material (a minimum thickness of 3/8 inch is recommended).
- Roofing nails or screws to secure your plywood roofing material onto your two-by-four frame structure.
Install the Window and Door Panels
Now that the walls are up, it’s time to install the window and door panels. This is a simple process, but there are a few things you’ll need to do first:
- Use the right tools. For example, do not use a hammer if your manufacturer recommends using an electric drill with an Allen key attachment instead.
- Follow manufacturer’s instructions for installation closely, the last thing you want is for something to go wrong because of poor installation!
- Check all of your measurements before installing any panels so that they’re level and square (the edges line up perfectly).
Install the Roofing Materials
Next, install your roofing materials. This will depend on the type of house you have and what kind of climate it’s exposed to, but generally speaking you’ll want something sturdy enough to withstand wind and rain without being too heavy. Plywood or OSB (oriented strand board) would be ideal for this purpose; however, if you don’t want to deal with cutting up sheets of plywood yourself then there are pre-cut panels available at most home improvement stores that are easy to install.
Once your panels are in place it’s time to secure them with nails or screws depending on how strong they are, nails are better for weaker boards like OSB but screws work better for stronger ones like plywood because they’ll hold better over time as the wood ages outwards from where it was screwed down initially. Make sure each panel has at least two nails per foot along its length in order not only give extra strength but also prevent any cracks from forming between seams later down line due to uneven pressure against them over time due even slight changes in temperature exposure levels throughout seasons here out west where we live!
