Installing, arming, disarming, monthly fees, and the possibility of having to deal with false alarms make some people wonder if a home security system is worth the hassle, however, protection and safety are incredibly important. What is more valuable than the safety of your loved ones and your possessions? There are many things to consider when seeking security for your home, and the slight hassles many associate with home security systems are far outweighed by their benefits.
- Your Valuables Will Be Protected
This is the most obvious benefit of a home security system. We all know someone who has experienced a home invasion, and lost valuable electronics, jewelry, and perhaps even had irreplaceable belongings with sentimental value stollen or damaged. A home security system has an alarm that will scare of many burglars, who will not risk their time lingering in protected places, and can notify the authorities if someone does attempt to break in.
- Home Security Systems Are A Valuable Crime Deterrent
In a 2009 study by Rutgers, it was discovered that as the number of home security systems rose in a residential area, the number of robberies and home invasions decreased. Crimes such as these are even less likely to occur in neighboring homes of a home protected in this manner, even if they do not have a home security system. A home security system will not only protect your family and home, but make your neighborhood a safer place.
- Your Homeowner’s Insurance Will Be Lower
While you do pay a monthly fee for your home security system, having one can also lower your homeowner’s insurance by up to 20 percent.
- You Will Be Immediately Notified Of Any Fire Or Gas Problems
You can choose to receive remote notifications if any smoke or carbon dioxide alarms go off while you’re away from home. With a high level of home security, you will have no unpleasant surprises awaiting you when you return home. Depending on your provider, you can even set it up so the appropriate authorities are notified immediately when emergencies such as these occur, so they can be readily dealt with by professionals.
