5 Reasons to Get a Home Security System

Home security systems provide us with peace of mind; the ability for a security system to alert us to danger and call for assistance is one of the greatest tools when it comes to protecting the things that matter to us most.

If you've been thinking about increasing the protection around your home, but you don't know if this kind of option is best for you, consider these 5 reasons to get a home security system:

1. To Prevent Theft

Home Break In

Leaving your home exposed to the possibility of theft can be both damaging and dangerous. Homes that are not protected by security or alarms are 300% more likely to be robbed than those that are protected, and homes without an alarm lose an average of $2,000 more in stolen property.

One of the main reasons to invest in a home security system is to help deter and protect your home from potential break-ins, damage, and loss. These kinds of programs are often even more valuable when they help to protect loved ones from being caught in the cross-fire of criminals.

2. To Lower Energy Consumption

Lower Energy Bill

Many of the home security systems available today can do much more than set off an alarm in the presence of a burglar. Modern designs can give homeowners much more control over their properties and possessions, including having the ability to lock doors or change temperatures at the touch of a button.

This kind of integration system is extremely helpful for energy conservation. Homeowners can use video surveillance to see that a window has been left open or that a light has been left on. There is also the option of turning down the temperature in the home when no one is there, and turning it back on when everyone is returning. These kinds of changes can be made easily on phones and iPads, regardless of where the homeowner is, which can help to lower energy consumption and decrease monthly energy bills.

Not only that but being able to play with lighting fixtures in the home allows homeowners to create the faŤade that someone is home, to discourage burglars from entering.

3. To Protect Your Home from Fires

A lot of homeowners assume that security systems are only meant for intrusions; however, this is not true. Many home security packages also come with fire security systems, to ensure that the home is safe from the inside out.

A basic smoke alarm system is meant to alarm homeowners when a fire has likely begun, but home security systems can give warnings ahead of time for better prevention. A quality fire security system can detect smoke and sources of heat and notify authorities in the presence of either problem. They can also monitor water flow and sprinklers, elevator recall, and duct detention. Early detection is very important to huge losses, making a home security system that much more vital to a protecting a home and keeping everyone safe.

4. To Save on Homeowner's Insurance

Getting homeowner's insurance is generally a mandatory task that occurs with homeownership. There are a variety of factors that contribute to the decided pricing, including location, type of home, payment plans, etc. While it is an added expense, it is extremely beneficial to have this kind of protection in case it is needed.

Homeowner's insurance is meant to protect homes and homeowners' possessions from damage and loss as a result of various possible events, such as fires and tornadoes. For those who are trying to lower this monthly cost, the added protection of a security system may help.

Homeowners with security systems are seen as being more capable of avoiding damages and loss, due to issues such as fires and burglary. Because of this, it's likely that the insurance will be lowered based on a number of factors, including the type of security system and the company offering the insurance. Generally, homeowners can save 10%-20% on their monthly payments with an installed security system.

5. For Peace of Mind

Knowing that our homes are being protected even when we aren't there is an invaluable benefit. Homeowners with children, elderly parents, and pets, or those who travel a lot can rest assured knowing that they can check on their home at any moment via home security.

Even if something does happen to the home, the proper authorities are notified immediately, making the likelihood of a huge loss or damage that much smaller.

Investing in a home security system is like having an extra set of eyes watching your home for you 24/7. Whether someone in your home needs assistance or a door has been left unlocked, security systems have the ability to keep us connected at the touch of a button.

Regardless of why you decide to get a home security system, these tools are invaluable to protect the things that matter most. Make sure to consider all of the packages available to you, to help you decide what kind of system is right for your home.
