Who Actually Uses Home Security (And Why You Should, Too!)

Who Actually Uses Home Security (And Why You Should, Too!)


Think your home has an advanced security system? Check out some of the systems and security measures used by these familiar faces.


Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie


According to Aaron Cohen, director of IMS Security, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie spend roughly $2 million each year on home/family security. The superstar Hollywood couple have hired retired Special Air Services (SAS) officers to watch over their home in France 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Of course, Brad and Angelina have also installed one of the most advanced home security systems on the market, featuring motion-sensing TV displays, wireless remote capabilities, biometric fingerprint recognition, and more. The total cost of their home security system is believed to be around $235 million.


50 Cent


Hip-hop star, music producer and actor 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson) has invested heavily into home security. According to some reports, he spends nearly $20,000 a week to protect his 52-room home in Connecticut. 50 Cent’s security system consists of an advanced alarm sensor with several audible sirens, as well as video monitoring and private security guards. Of course, it’s probably a good idea for 50 Cent to spend such a hefty amount on security, as the rapper was shot nine times back in May 2000.


Tom Cruise


Being that Tom Cruise is one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood, it should come as no surprise that he has an impressive home security system. The Million Impossible star has a dedicated guard station at the front of his gated home in Beverley Hills, complete with a video surveillance system covering the perimeter. Reports indicate that security guards hired by Cruise have special areas which they are allowed to access, as well as restricted areas which they are not allowed to access.


The Bottom Line


Let’s face it, celebrities like Tom Cruise, 50 Cent and “Brangelina” have plenty of disposable income to use on home security. The good news, however, is that protecting your home and family doesn’t have to cost an arm and leg. There are dozens of high-quality security systems available that work just as well as the ones used by celebrities, so don’t assume that protecting your home and family is “too expensive.” As long as your security system covers all points of entry and includes at least one motion sensor, you’ll have more than enough protection.
