Here are five reasons why you should invest in a home security system.
1. Secure your home.
Yes, it is obvious that the purpose of a home security system is to keep your home safe and secure. But don’t look past this too lightly. There are many ways a burglar can come into your home. According to the FBI, a burglary has occurred in the United States every 15.4 seconds. Don’t take the chance and let your home be one of these. Here is a list of home security tips. Be proactive and protect your loved ones and belongings.
2. Protect your home from a fire
We’ve all left the stove top on for longer than it should be without knowing. A fire could break out anytime and anywhere. Fires can be devastating and tragic to a family, especially kids. Most security systems include a heat sensor, as well as a smoke and carbon monoxide monitor. Once a potential danger is detected, the systems trigger an alert to the fire department and your home security provider. Don’t let all your hard work burn into ashes within minutes.
3. Peace of mind
As a homeowner, I’m sure you already have enough to stress about. Wouldn’t it be nice to leave home for a vacation and not have to worry about the safety of your home? Is it an additional stress factor trying to find someone trustworthy to home-sit? In a case of an emergency, your provider will notify you immediately. Vacations are meant to be stress-free and not worrisome!
4. View your home with surveillance
With technology always improving, it is common for homeowners to have a surveillance camera monitoring the exteriors of their home. Have you ever left the house in a hurry and can’t remember if you closed the gate or not? With a security camera, you can simply view a monitor to see if you need to make the trip back home to close it or if you, in fact, closed the gate. Most cameras are able to be viewed from any device with an Internet connection.
5. Discount on home insurance
You can be assured that, at most, you can qualify for a 20 percent deduction from your homeowners insurance when you have a home security system installed. You and your insurance companies will feel comfortable knowing that your home is safe and protected from burglary and damage. It is less likely for a homeowner with security installed to experience a burglary over a home that doesn’t.
A home security system is essential in any home. The benefits will give you satisfaction and a happy home. According to a home invasion and home burglary statistic, 95 percent of home security owners are satisfied with their alarm systems. Invest your money in a product that saves you money and it could save your life.
