Its important to protect your family and your assets. An alarm system is a small investment compared to the average lost in a burglary. A home security system is a proven way to prevent burglary. Its been found that burglars spend less than 60 seconds breaking into a home. Burglars are on the lookout for soft targets, homes that are easy to break into with minimal risk. A home security system makes your home that much more risky and is a great way of scaring off a would-be intruder.
An alarm system normally includes sensors on all exterior windows and doors on the ground level to prevent intrusion, motion sensors on the floor and basement (if there is outside access) and a very loud alarm. This generally makes it very difficult to break into your home without the alarm being triggered. Other modifications are also available such as glass break sensors, app notifications, etc.
This means there is a third-party service that is instantly alerted if your alarm goes off. If the alarm is not turned off within a set period of time the police are automatically notified. The system can tell between a burglary and a fire. Should your smoke/fire detectors trigger, the fire department is immediately dispatched.
When you’re home the alarm can be set to home mode, so that you can still walk around the house without triggering an alarm, but should someone try to breakin, the alarm will automatically trigger.
Reasons to invest in a home security system:
- Deter potential crime
- Detect smoke and fire
- Receive a discount on Home Insurance
- Control your home remotely
- Help law enforcement respond quicker to emergencies
