5 Reasons Why You Need a Home Security System
Mar 05, 2018
A home security system protects your home and the ones you love. While there are many reasons you may need to invest in a home security system, we have highlighted some key ones:
1. Peace of Mind
Have you heard a noise in the night and ever wondered what made the noise? A home security system will allow you to view your security footage so that you can investigate without going outside to inspect.
Additionally, customers who go on vacation feel comfortable having access to their home security via an app or knowing that their home is being monitored by a professional team. The added layers of security with surveillance cameras and motion detectors deter burglars and other criminals from entering your home. If someone does try to break in, you will get immediate updates and notifications from your system.
2. Smoke and CO2 Alarms
All gas appliances produce carbon dioxide and can be extremely dangerous for humans and pets. It is impossible for the human nose to detect, so having a system monitor this for you is a literal life saver.
Additionally, most house fires start at night or when no one is at home. Your smoke detector may alert you of a fire, but it likely does not alert the fire department for you. Options to have smoke alarms and CO2 alarms that connect to a monitoring system or app allow you to react quickly and keep your property safe from damage.
3. Home Automation
98% of people with a cellular device do not leave home without their phone in hand. With a whole home security system, you can be connected to your home using home automation. You can view security cameras remotely, lock and unlock doors, and turn lights on and off. You can keep your home safe by simply touching a button, no matter where you are in the world.
These home automation features can also help you if you need to let your dog walker into your house or turn off a light you may have left on by mistake.
4. Keep an Eye on Your Kids
Everyone knows that it is tough to leave your children with a babysitter, but with a home security system you can check in whenever you need to. Or know exactly when your children are arriving home from school and ensure they make it safely inside by viewing your camera footage. You can also check on your sleeping infant without leaving the room you are in if you are using security cameras as monitors.
5. Home Security Systems Are Affordable
We don’t blink an eye when we spend $5 a day on coffee, $15 a day on lunch, and upwards of $150 a month on cable television. But did you know it only costs around $1 a day for your home security system?
A base system usually runs around $349, which is an investment for your family and your home. This investment immediately goes to work for you, keeping your home and family safe and secure.
