Home security systems provide added safety

The main reason to install a home security system is the protection of the family against intruders. Recent studies suggest that homes without a security system are more than twice as likely to be targeted by a burglar. In most cases, indicators of an alarm system are enough to prevent a break-in. If the home is targeted, the security system provides family members the opportunity to get to a safe location in or outside of the home. The alarm system contacts local authorities and help is dispatched without delay. Home security systems also include early warning against fires. They detect and warn against the presence of smoke and heat and signal authorities. Time is a huge factor in any emergency. By realizing and reacting to the problem quickly, a security system saves lives and helps to prevent the complete destruction of the home and its contents. Along with smoke and heat, carbon monoxide detectors can be included as a part of a home security system. Carbon monoxide is a deadly, colorless and odorless gas contained in combustion fumes. The security system warns of elevated levels, provides emergency service dispatch and calls paramedics. It monitors the home for safety and health threats 24/7, whether the house is occupied or empty. With an installed security system, there is always someone available to respond to emergency situations. There is quick action when an alarm is triggered due to smoke, heat, carbon monoxide, significant temperature fluctuations, flooding, glass breakage or intruders. If not prevented entirely, damage is often minimized. Homeowner’s insurance is intended to cover the home and possessions in the event of damage or loss. Most homeowners benefit from a 10 to 20% discount on the insurance when installing a home security system.
