Home security systems are an important addition to any home. They can alert you of unexpected activity in and around your home, give you peace of mind, protect your valuables, and save you money on bills.

1. Protect & secure your home.

The top reason to install a security system is to protect your family and property from intruders. The good news is that when an unauthorized visitor enters a home equipped with a security system, in most cases the alarm will be enough to send them running for the hills. All the while, the security system will have already sent alerts to authorities and captured footage of the intrusion.

2. Remotely monitor your home via an app.

When you’re away from home, it’s easy to worry about something going amiss. Did my package make it to the door, and is it safe from porch pirates? Did my kids make it home from school safely? Did I leave a door unlocked? A home security/surveillance system provides you with the ability to monitor your home from any location, at anytime. This can provide a sense of peace as you will be able to check on your property, control access to your home by locking and unlocking doors, and monitor guests, deliveries, and other traffic, all from your phone.

3. In case of a breach, authorities will be alerted immediately.

Whether you’re protecting your home itself, the contents of your home, or the people inside, having a home security system not only can alert you of an intrusion, but can dispatch authorities to your home quicker than you can call them. This can give you time to either exit your home safely or find a safe place to hide while you wait for help to arrive.

4. 24/7 year-round monitoring by security professionals.

Signing up for a professionally monitored security system means your home is protected 24/7, even if you’re in a remote area of the world on vacation. If a sensor triggers while you’re away, the monitoring station will dispatch authorities to your home, and monitoring professionals will respond to any emergencies that occur.

5. Save on your homeowners insurance bill.

Did you know you can save money on your homeowner’s insurance bill by installing a security system? By showing your insurance company that you are taking steps to ensure home protection, they feel protected too. A homeowner's insurance policy is designed to cover losses or damages that may occur as a result of several types of devastating events. If you install a security system to try and prevent these events, your insurance company is likely to give you a hefty discount on your bill.
