Home Security Is Important

By David Johnson

It is important to keep up with your area's local crime rate and inform your neighbors and co workers on how to prevent themselves from falling prey to one of these criminals. It is important for everyone especially those who are children or women to know what to do if they are ever apprehended and basics on how to get loose and run.

Not only is the personal safety of your family important buy of the first things you should invest in after buying a home is a home security system. A security system can protect your family as well as your personal belongings while you are sleeping or away from your home.

Don't be one of the thousands of homeowners who purchase home security systems only after they have been victimized. Realize the fact that crime happens in every type of neighborhood and no one is safe without the right security systems installed. No one likes to go around and announce that they were the victim of a burglary but know that it happens in everyone's area everyday.

A home security alarm system works in many ways. One is by deterrence: statistically you are three out of four times less likely to have your home broken into if you have a well known home security system sticker and sign posted on your property. Of course you can still have someone break in even when such a sign is posted, but you will have a trigger system set up that will sound alarms and scare off the intruder.

No one wants to come home to an intruder in the middle of his crime possibly causing them to react in violence. Chances are if your alarm is sounding you won't enter the premises until the cops or fire department has cleared your property.

Most home security systems have special triggers that alert the local fire department if they sense smoke or fire in the home. The trigger prompts the fire department to respond by calling your home and confirming there is an emergency. If there is no answer on your part then the fire department will then dispatched to your residence.

Home security detectors also come equipped with special carbon monoxide sensors that will alert you if certain levels of the toxic substance are detected.

Not only do home security systems protect your family as well as your belongings, it also saves you a considerable amount of money on your home owners insurance or renter's insurance premiums. Many homeowners' insurance companies are willing to give you up to a twenty percent discount for installing a home security system and investing in monitoring services.

For many Americans buying a home is the single largest investment of their life. It seems logical to insure it against damages as well as protect it against intruders. If you plan of keeping homeowners insurance for the entire length of your home loan, commonly twenty or thirty years, the saving on your insurance alone could pay for your continuous home monitoring services.
