Maryland homeowners are always looking for ways to keep their family members and property safe. A home theater system is a great way to keep your home safe from criminal activity like vandalism and burglary, and a system can be easily installed in existing homes as well as newly constructed homes. However, one home security system may not fit all residential homes, so it is important for homeowners to explore their options when looking for a new system. Before making a home security purchase, it is important to consider the following things:
- Size- Consider the size of your home before making a purchase. You don’t want to purchase a system that cannot effectively protect all of the doors and windows of your home. You also don’t want a system that is too advanced for your smaller home. Count the number of windows and doors, including garage and basement entrances, to help consider how many sensors and control panels you will need.
- 24 Hours-Consider how much time you will spend away from your home as well as the crime rate of your neighborhood. If you plan on leaving your home unattended for long periods of time, like during business trips or vacations, it may be a good idea to consider 24 hour monitoring. It may also be a smart decision if your neighborhood has a higher crime rate or is known for burglaries. You can talk with your local law enforcement to determine the crime rate and burglary rate.
- Wires- Homeowners now have the ability to choose between a wired system or a wireless system. While a wireless system is easier to install and upgrade, it can be affected by wave interference and can have a limited range when it comes to transmission. A wired system is more involved when it comes to installation, but it won’t be affected by interference.
- Use-It is also important for homeowners to consider who will be using the system before making a decision. If your home includes elderly individuals or children, it would be smart to consider a simple system and control panel to make use easier for everyone in the home.
