The Five Biggest Benefits Of A Monitored Home Security System
February 14th, 2020
You may think installing a home security system is costly, but not installing one could cost you not just money and valuables. According to the U.S. Dept of Justice findings, home burglaries affect 3.7 million homeowners each year. In 28% of these burglaries, a member of the household was present. What is even worse, 7% of those were victims of violence from the intruders. We will take a look at the top five reasons why it is beneficial to install or upgrade a home security system.
Protect Your Family:
The number one reason any Billings homeowner needs a home security system is to protect his family. Statistics show that most burglaries occur between 10 AM to 11 AM or between 1 PM and 3 PM. If the burglar enters the home expecting it to be empty, finding someone home could cause them to react aggressively. With a security system in place, it often gives the family member time to get out safely. This is especially important if your children go home after school.
Protect Against Fires
Home security alarm systems will also provide additional protection for Billings homeowners. Not only does the system warn the homeowner but will pinpoint the location of the smoke and notify the proper authorities. According to the Dept of Homeland Security it takes less than 30 seconds for a small flame to turn into a major fire, and minutes for thick black smoke to fill the house.
Protect Your Valuables
From jewelry to big ticket items to Uncle Ernie’s antique gun, we all have items that are sentimental or represent our accomplishments or even define who we are. Each year burglaries cost homeowners $3.1 billion dollars in lost valuables. However, you cannot place a value on your engagement ring or Uncle Ernie’s gun because they are irreplaceable.
Your Home Is Protected Even When You Are Not There
One of the biggest benefits of a monitored home security system is that should you need to go out of town for business or taking a vacation, should an emergency occur, they will respond to any intruders, smoke, carbon monoxide or significant temperature drops in your home. With monitoring you won’t have to worry about coming back from a vacation to find your furnace died and your pipes froze and burst, or any other number of things that can go wrong.
