Protect Your Family. Protect Your Home.
Since a burglary occurs every 14 seconds in the United States, home owners need to take precautions. Peak burglary hours are between 6 AM and 6 PM while most home owners are at work. Home security systems provide peace of mind to home owners and deter criminals while home owners are away. A simple alarm system can save the average home owner $1,991 on average if a single burglary attempt is foiled.
Most home owners do not require sophisticated technology to protect the home. A simple security system can protect the average homeowner while they are away and in the home. For those people located in high risk areas, sophisticated security systems are available.
Protecting families and investments are high on the priority list of most homeowners. A home without a home security alarm system is three times more likely to be burglarized. Unfortunately, the declining economy has caused an increase in property crime. Why not free mental space associated with worrying by purchasing a home security system to protect your home and family?
Save Money and Time.
Home insurance is expensive for homes in the United States. A home in a high risk neighborhood may have an exorbitantly high premium. The average annual home owner’s insurance premium is $800 in the United States. Insurance companies offer as much as a 20 percent discount on homes with home security systems. With this type of savings, home owners cannot afford not to make this type of investment.
Alarm systems act as a deterrent to criminals. Homes with security systems and signs in the front yard are typically avoided by criminals. Those burglars brave enough to try, may be filmed on a camera used in conjunction with an alarm system. Cameras may be monitored remotely to determine who is lurking in the home without authorization.
Customize Your Home Security System.
Home security systems may be customized to meet the needs of the family. Home security may consist of a simple alarm system with contacts on the windows and doors or an alarm system may be more complex with motion detectors, interior and exterior cameras and security gates. Remote monitoring on a computer may be available to help home owners monitor their homes while away at work or on a long business trip. Home owners may be accommodated in many ways.
Some areas must be secured by alarm systems. The front door is the most common point of entry. Since this is the case, home owners should place extra security reinforcements at the front door of the home. Cameras and door contacts are the most common security system reinforcements. Signage may also act as a deterrent and be a component of the entire security system.
Wireless alarm systems are also popular and easier to install. The motion detectors and other components of alarm systems may be wireless. Wireless systems are often tied to cellular phones. This is a more secure design because phone lines may be cut, and the system may be compromised during a burglary attempt. Many home owners prefer wireless alarm systems to wired alarm systems for this reason.
