When it comes to home security, consumers have a lot of options and elements to consider, whether to go the DIY route or have it professionally designed and installed for example. Your safety and that of your family is a serious matter, so it is important to know the benefits of installing a system and having it professionally monitored.
Here are the top advantages a home security system offers:
Protects Your Family from Intruders
Intruders are far less likely to target a home with a security system in place. Alarms and the risk of getting caught will send them running. When the home is professionally monitored, the authorities are alerted when an alarm is activated so help is on the way.
Protects Your Valuables
Burglars want your valuables but love an easy target. That makes a home security system a huge problem for them. Most burglars will pass up on a home with things live video surveillance in place and opt for one without. If they do strike, you have proof of the crime and the perpetrators for law enforcement.
Prevents and Minimizes Loss and Damage
In most cases, there is a gap in time between when a threatening situation starts and when it becomes evident to the resident, such as in a smoldering fire or build up of dangerous gases. Those are critical moments lost and moments that could be the difference between preventing catastrophic loss, or not. With a home security system and professional monitoring, those moments are regained and the help you need is dispatched immediately, even if you can’t call yourself.
Reduces Neighborhood Crime
Criminals know that homes with security cameras pose a huge risk to them because they can often catch images that surround the home, such as passing cars. The more cameras, the more images of the criminal. A 2009 study by Rutgers found that as the number of home security systems increased in an area, the number of residential robberies decreased.
Allows You to Check In on Your Home
With remote access, you can check in on the home, pets, and kids even if you are not there. If trouble is brewing you can take action immediately.
Provides Peace of Mind
Perhaps the best benefit of home security is the peace of mind it provides knowing you have done all you can to protect your family.
