According to Napco Security Systems Chairman and CEO Richard Soloway, something that is commonly lost in the hype surrounding the market potential of DIY home security products are the potential risks they pose to consumers. Soloway said that one of the primary pitfalls of purchasing consumer grade security equipment is that it can be unreliable.

Napco sounds alarm over DIY security systems
According to Napco Security Systems Chairman and CEO Richard Soloway, DIY home security systems pose several potential risks to consumers.
In an age where security both online and offline is a constant concern, the demand for professionals skilled in security measures is always on the rise.
Security guards face serious responsibilities on a daily basis: They protect people against fire, theft, vandalism, terrorism and other illegal and dangerous threats. Security guards ensure safety by actively patrolling or using security systems to keep a watchful eye over a facility. Like police officers, many security guards are armed with weapons. Specific tasks vary by setting: Transportation guards use detectors to screen passengers, while security guards at casinos look out for cheating and underage gamblers. Although movies give security guards a bad rap by depicting frequent snoozing on the job, in reality there’s little down time in this line of work, as guards must remain alert to watch for any suspicious activity.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a steady job growth of 12.1 percent for the profession between 2012 and 2022, as concern about crime, vandalism and terrorism continue to increase the need for security. During that time period, the BLS expects that 129,600 new jobs will be added.
