With improvements to security technology, every homeowner should consider having a security system installed. Your family will feel safer, and your home will be protected from intruders.

If you think your home is safe, think again. Intruders and burglars have several ways of entering your home, including your front, back and garage doors, main floor windows and even unlock entry points like your second-floor windows. A security system is the only real way to protect yourself from break-ins.

A security system provides the best deterrence for criminals on the prowl. Just seeing the security logos on your home will send them to the next house. They know it’s not worth the risk and might be more likely to be caught due to features like video monitoring. Intruders are 300% more likely to choose a home without a security system, which isn’t surprising.

Although 54% of homeowners admit they don’t completely understand how to work their security systems, 95% agree they are happy they chose to have a security system installed. Not only are they safer, but they can also help you save money. Most insurance companies offer discounts for homeowners with security systems for both home and car insurance.

Some things to look for when shopping for a system include:

  • Crash and smash sensors
  • Video monitoring
  • Smart locks
  • Remote operation of your windows, doors and locks
  • Smart systems designed to interact with other home systems such as HVAC, lighting and appliances

There are options available to suit any budget or property set up. It’s well worth the investment for complete peace of mind.
