Installing, arming, disarming and dealing with false alarms are all things that are tied to monitored security systems which may cause you to wonder if home security systems are worth the inherent hassle. This is a good question to ask as you consider how you can best protect your valuables and your loved ones.

There are a lot of elements to think about when it comes to home security systems and that includes how the security system could benefit you and your family. Here are a few reasons how this is true

Protects Valuables

We likely all know someone who has lost electronics, jewelry, or other high-value items due to a home invasion. The tragedy is compounded when the item is an irreplaceable family heirloom. A home security system has an alarm that scares off many would-be burglars and can notify the local authorities if someone does attempt a break-in.

Deters Crime

Studies has found that, as the number of home security systems increased in an area, the number of residential robberies decreased in that area, even for people who didn’t have their own security system. Having a security system not only protects you, but helps your neighborhood be a safer place for everyone.

Lowers Homeowner’s Insurance

Having an alarm system in your home could lower your homeowner’s insurance by up to 20%. That, combined with the other benefits, makes an alarm system a pretty good deal.

Saving money by installing a GSM

A GSM (Global system for mobile communications) sends information to your phone alerting you of anything out of the ordinary, instead of sending notifications to your security service provider a GSM sends it straight to your cell phone eliminating the need for a security service provider saving you money. A GSM enables you to turn your alarm on and off remotely from your phone, even if you where on holiday or at work. You could, through your installed GSM, switch on your irrigation systems, lights, electric fence or even open and close your garage door or automated gate.

Makes Room for Peace of Mind

The sense of security and peace you gain with an alarm system is perhaps the greatest benefit of all. Next to being safe, the confidence of feeling safe will help you be a more productive, healthy, and focused person.
Adding a security system to your home gives you an extra layer of defense against any potential intruders. Whether you rent or own, you can enjoy the benefits that come with having a security system.
