Ten Reasons to purchase a home security system

Home alarm system technology has been greatly improving in the midst of technological advancements allowing homeowners superior protection at extremely affordable rates. Unfortunately, many people fail to implement home alarm system solutions to their home until after they have become the victim of an intrusion or other emergency in their homes. The majority of these incidents could have been prevented with the simple addition of a home alarm system.
Installing a home alarm system will greatly reduce your chances of being the victim of a home intrusion by as much as forty times compared to unprotected homes. There are many benefits to owning a security system, creating a value far greater than any amount spent on the system itself.

1.     Keep Your Loved Ones Safe

Never leave your family vulnerable to dangerous, possibly life threatening situations. Installing a home alarm system will give you and your family peace of mind knowing that your home is safe and secure. Whether you are away from home, or in bed sleeping you will be at ease because you will no longer have to worry about the safety of your loved ones.

2.     Keep Your Valuables Safe

Just like the need to protect our families, our homes are full of prized possessions that are invaluable and irreplaceable. A home alarm system will ensure that your property is safe, not only from the hands of criminals but from the dangers of fire and flooding.

3.     Deter Criminals

Research has shown that the mere presence of home alarm system peripherals is enough of a deterrent to make criminals think twice about trying to break into your home. In the rare occasion that your home is still broken into after implementing a security system, the sound of the alarm and the quick response of the police will ensure that the damage caused is minimized drastically compared to an unsecured home.

4.     Quick Emergency Response

With home alarm system monitoring in place any alarm triggered by either an intrusion or an emergency situation such as fire, flooding, or poisonous gasses will be immediately reported to local authorities, whether or not the homeowner is able to make contact themselves.

5.     Reduced Homeowners Insurance Premiums

The majority of home insurance providers are willing to drastically reduce insurance premiums on policies for homes that have a security system installed. This reduction typically ranges anywhere from 5 to 20%, easily offsetting the cost of purchasing and installing a home alarm system.

6.     Energy Cost Savings

In addition to reduced insurance costs, most home security systems on the market today allow for the control of thermostats, lighting and many other electrical devices automatically through preprogrammed settings within the control panel. Implementing this type of home automation can greatly reduce your home energy expenditure, yet another reason why your alarm system will pay for itself over time.

7.     Remote Monitoring

With a home alarm system, you will be able to monitor the activity within your home no matter where you are located in the world as long as you have an internet connected device such as a smart phone or laptop. With remote access you can arm and disarm your system, view your surveillance and nanny cameras, and even access home automation features to turn lights and other appliances on or off in a moment’s notice.

8.     Peaceful Vacations

You will never have to worry about the security of your home while you are away. Knowing your home is absolutely secured allows you to concentrate on your getaway. If any abnormality occurs within your home while you are away, the police will be notified and the situation will be resolved without you being forced to end your vacation.

9.     Environmental Hazard Protection

Home security systems provide far more protection to your home than simply home intrusions. When you are having your home alarm system installed you will have the option to include fire, smoke, flooding, and carbon monoxide detectors as additions to your system. Similar to the rest of the sensors, if any one of these triggers an alarm, your security systems monitoring station will immediately notify police. These sensors are lifesavers because they detect emergencies long before people usually do, allowing you to safely escape your home before it is too late.

10.  Increased Home Resale Value or Easily Moving Your Security System

Including alarm systems with your home when you put it up for sale can be used as a selling point for the resale of the home. Many people looking to purchase new homes will be drawn to your listing because of the security system provided and be willing to spend extra money to obtain it. If you do not wish to leave your security system behind, the newer technology of wireless security systems makes it incredibly easy to take your alarm system with you when you move without having to drill holes to remove and reinstall wires behind walls and underneath floorboards.

There are many more benefits to owning a home security system that should not be passed on. Do not wait and risk becoming a statistic before you decide to protect your home, the benefits listed above clearly show that the cost of purchasing a security system is quickly returned through reduced insurance and energy costs, along with the value you will obtain knowing your family and belongings are completely safe and secure.
