Owning a home is one of life’s biggest milestones. You move in, change the locks, see that all the windows have working locks, replace the bulbs in the entry lights, and trim the shrubbery around the perimeter. You’re all safe and secure.
Right? Not really.
The only way to truly protect your home and your family from intruders and fire/gas/carbon monoxide emergencies is with a professionally installed, centrally monitored home security system. Below are 9 reasons why you should consider a custom home security system:
1. A security system protects your home from intruders
Having a home security system protects your home from intruders both while you are home and while the home is vacant. You can rest easy, knowing your home and family will be safe. The peace of mind that comes with a home security system cannot be overstated.
2. Monitoring services will automatically notify authorities
With central station monitoring services, events and alarms are tracked and the police are notified and dispatched. This means if you can’t get to a phone or aren’t home when an alarm sounds, the authorities are still notified immediately.
3. Your home will be protected from fire/gas/carbon monoxide problems
A home security system can detect dangers such as invisible, poisonous carbon monoxide. If an alarm sounds, emergency personnel are dispatched from your system’s central monitoring station.
4. You can watch your home remotely
Remote monitoring means you can keep an eye on your home at any time. This is usually through an app on your smartphone, which provides a live feed from your cameras. You can view the inside and outside of your home, including seeing someone at the door. This feature is invaluable if you have children that need to be home alone, or if you are on vacation.
5. You can reduce power consumption
Many security systems also include home automation features. If you leave your home and forget to turn off lights or lower the heat, you can remotely adjust items like these, which greatly help in reducing energy usage and costs.
6. Your pets will be protected
If there is an emergency in your home while you are not there, who will protect your pets? A monitored security system provides additional peace of mind about animals that are alone in your home.
7. You’ll receive a discount on homeowner’s insurance
Having a home security system, especially one monitored by a central station means discounts on your homeowner’s insurance. Over the years, this can add up to substantial savings. Just another benefit of protecting your home!
8. Lower crime rates, higher resale values
A home security system always increases the value of a home. Studies show that in neighborhoods where homes are protected with security systems, crime rates are lower. Accordingly, homes with security systems connected to central monitoring tend to have higher resale values, and sell quicker than homes without systems.
9. You’ll have peace of mind
A home security system is one of the most important investments you can make. Your family, pets and home are safe, your valuables are protected, and central monitoring ensures rapid responses to any emergencies. When your family and your home are protected and kept safe, peace of mind is immeasurable.
