Hi I’m Steve. Alarmatics.com was created by me to help you, the security system end user get more from your security devices. With over 30 years of hands-on experience in designing, installing and maintaining electronic security systems my goal is to provide you with honest advice on the basics of security systems, CCTV cameras, self monitoring with apps and lots more. I’m also a tinkerer and love to modify security equipment and make it do useful stuff it wasn’t really designed to do! Dive in and enjoy!
