Once you’ve set up your home security system, you may need to add extra security cameras or sensors to monitor blind spots that may be out of range. Some home security companies sell additional equipment at a discounted rate if you’ve purchased their home security system. If not, adding additional equipment can be fairly inexpensive. Adding an extra indoor security camera can cost upwards of $100 or an extra door sensor can cost around $30.
