Have you ever run into the situation where you just bought a new shiny home security device that was labeled as DIY but despite following the instructions to the letter, something was amiss and the system refused to work? It’s a truly frustrating experience since the security product is in your hand and still the home remains unprotected while waiting for a handyman to come and finish the work. The truth is that most homeowners are willing to pay for a knowledgeable technician to come to their house and set up their expensive defense system for them. However, more often than not home security companies will refuse to come install home security equipment that wasn’t bought through them. Luckily for you, Amazon has the perfect solution.
Amazon Home Services
The existence of this service often goes unnoticed by homeowners, which is a shame. To explain it briefly, Amazon has created a network of screened handymen specializing in all kinds of helpful work around the house. Do you need a plumber, a repairman, or – in this case – someone who calibrates the smart home devices for you? Amazon Home Services displays the list of contracted professionals in your area and from there all that is needed is to choose one and contact them with your request. They either present a fixed price offer or arrange a payment to be determined by the scope of the job. Since Amazon only works with selected handymen, homeowners can expect their problem solved in a quick and effective manner.
Amazon Will Install the Cameras for You
If you are having trouble installing a camera, don’t hesitate to connect Amazon Home Services. At the moment, there are only two categories in the “Home Security Services” section. You can either have your Arlo video camera system set up, or request a professional installation for your Ring video doorbell. It’s important to note that ordering the service doesn’t include the product itself and you cannot purchase the product from the arriving technicians. The site even warns you on the main page that you must have the device prior to the appointment. Unfortunately you won’t be able to ask them to work with cameras other than Arlo or Ring, but hopefully in the future the list will be updated with more options.
Why Pay a Technician?
A good question, since the point of the whole ‘Do It Yourself’ design for home security products was to make things easier and faster for you. There’s the bother in arranging an appointment and having a family member stay at home to let in the technician, not to mention the mess they leave afterwards, right? Well, the likes of the elderly or people who lack the skills or tools needed for such a precise task will most likely benefit from a handyman. Besides, technicians are highly experienced with security products, they know which position the camera should be placed in for the best results, and when they leave you can feel safe in the knowledge that your system will function at 100%.
