The Top 7 Reasons to Get a Home Burglar Alarm
There are a lot of elements to think about when it comes to home burglar alarms and that includes how it could benefit you and your family. Here are some benefits to ESP Security fitting a burglar alarms system in your home in Dublin or Kildare.
1. Protects Valuables
This is, of course, the benefit most people immediately think of. We likely all know someone who has lost electronics, jewellery, or other high-value items due to a home invasion. The tragedy is compounded when the item is an irreplaceable family heirloom. A home intruder alarm scares off many would-be burglars and can a monitored alarm system can notify the local authorities if someone does attempt a break-in.
2. Deters Crime
A 2009 study by Rutgers found that, as the number of home burglar alarms increased in an area, the number of residential robberies decreased in that area, even for people who didn’t have their own home intruder alarm. Having a security system not only protects you, but helps your neighbourhood be a safer place for everyone.
3. Allows Remote Access to Your Home
Modern security systems now allow you to remotely monitor what’s happening in your home when you’re not there. Depending on your provider, you can monitor what happens via cameras installed throughout your home, as well as control the thermostat, door locks, lights, and other devices in your home.
4. Lowers Homeowner’s Insurance
Yes, you may be paying a monthly fee for your home security system, but having the system in your home can lower your homeowner’s insurance by up to 20%. That, combined with the other benefits, makes home security a pretty good deal.
5. Notifies You of Fire or Gas Problems
You can opt to receive notifications if your smoke or carbon monoxide alarms go off when you’re away from home. You can even set it up so authorities are instantly notified of these emergencies.
6. Helps Keep Tabs on Kids
This is another great aspect of home automation. If you’re at work, you can use your mobile app to watch what’s happening in your home via CCTV cameras, so you’ll know who your teens are inviting over when you’re away. If you have automatic door locks, you can even remotely unlock them to let the kids in after school, so they don’t have to worry about carrying (and potentially losing) a key to the house.
7. Makes Room for Peace of Mind
The sense of security and peace you gain with a home burglar 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.
