Homes With Security Systems are 300% Less Likely To Be Burglarized

 

It’s no secret that burglars tend to avoid homes that are protected with security systems. However, you might be surprised to learn that homes with security systems are 300% less likely to be burglarized when compared to homes without security systems. Burglars prefer to operate in the shadows, avoiding conflict with homeowners when possible. If a home contains a security system, however, it will trigger a loud alarm or siren when the burglar attempts to the premises.

 

Home Security Systems are Helpful In Emergency Medical Situations

 

While they are typically installed and used for the purpose of protecting against burglary, home security systems are also useful in emergency medical situations. If someone in your home has a medical emergency – severe allergy attack, difficulty breathing, sudden spike in blood sugar, etc. – they can press the medical panic button on the control panel, at which point the monitoring company will be notified.

 

You Can Control Your Security System Using a Smartphone

 

Home security technology has come a long ways over the years. Thanks to the advent of mobile technology, homeowners can now control their security systems using an app on their smartphone or tablet computer. What’s the purpose in doing so? Well, if you’re away on a business trip and need to let the neighbor in so he or she can water your plants, you can temporarily disable the alarm so they can enter. And once your neighbor leaves, you can rest the alarm to ensure your home is safe and secure.

 

Lower Your Homeowner’s Insurance Premium

 

It’s a little-known fact that installing a security system will lower your homeowner’s insurance premium. The exact amount of money you’ll save depends on your provider. However, you can expect to save anywhere between 10-20% just by having a security system. So while there’s some initial investment required upfront, you’ll almost certainly save money in the long run thanks to the savings it offers on homeowner’s insurance as well as the protection of your property and valuables.

 

Installing a Security System Will Increase Your Home’s Value

 

No, that’s not a typo. Installing a security system will increase your home’s total selling value. When you get ready to sell your home, you’ll be able to fetch a higher price since it’s protected with a security system. Furthermore, having a security system will prove useful when realtors and potential buyers are checking out your home.
