Beyond Peace of Mind … Why Security Matters.
Folks often wonder if they should bother investing in Home Security System, and perhaps oddly enough, we get it. Particularly if you’re from a notoriously safe community, or you know your neighbours quite well it can seem like an extra expense you just don’t need, or at the very least, something that can be put on the long finger.
That being said, there are plenty of practical reasons to install a quality home security system and it may not be just for the reasons you think.
Beyond the peace of mind that comes with a quality security systems, below are four additional reasons contemporary security systems are a quality choice for you and your home.
1. Total control:
Modern Security Systems can now provide more than just the sense of security, these systems have advanced so that you can now access and monitor every aspect of your home. From front lights, to air conditioning it has never been easier to manage every detail of your home. No more are the days when we get to work or leave for holiday and realise we forgot to turn off the thermostat, and are required to leave it on and running for the duration of the day, or trip! These things can now be managed by the touch of a button no matter where you are.
2. Return on Investment:
One of the things that many home owners don’t realise is that installing a security system can actually reduce the amount you pay in home insurance. With the installation of a security system you could potentially save up to 20% on your policy. It can actually pay, in more ways than one, to have a security system installed early on.
3. Fire and Gas Emergencies:
Traditional security systems would only trigger if an intruder were to enter the premises. Thankfully, another benefit to contemporary security systems is that they can connect directly into your smoke or carbon monoxide alarms and can immediately notify you of a problem, whether you’re in the home or not. Some systems also allow you to connect immediately to emergency services so that damage is staved off as soon as possible.
4. Monitor the Kids…
Look, we get it. These days things pop-up and you may not be able to make it home as early as you hoped – it happens to the best of us. Fortunately, with an up-to-date security system you no longer have to worry about the kids getting home before you and possibly being stranded outside. Not only can you open the door for them on their arrival from your phone, but you can also keep an eye on them and make sure everything is running smoothly … not to mention, make sure they’re doing their homework.
