Today, home alarm systems come in all kinds of packages.
From state-of-the-art systems combining CCTV with heat detection and other technologies to basic home alarm systems which simply emit noise and bright light when an intruder is detected, all home alarm systems can greatly decrease your chances of being targeted by criminals.
If you’re thinking of investing in a home alarm system for your property but you’re still undecided, let’s take a look at some of the many benefits of a home alarm security system.
Deter burglars before a crime occurs
Thieves and burglars are well-practised at spotting home alarm systems, so you can be sure that if you do have one installed, it won’t go unnoticed.
A study conducted by Rutgers in 2009 demonstrated that, in an area where lots of home alarm systems were installed, break-ins fell not just in those homes with alarm systems but in the whole neighbourhood.
In other words, installing a home alarm system doesn’t just deter criminals from breaking into your home, but from breaking into your neighbours’ homes, too.
Catch the perpetrator, recover your property
With a home alarm system installed, the chances of catching a thief are that much higher, particularly if they’re caught on CCTV.
With recent data showing that 73% of households that are broken into have property stolen, it’s clear that recovering stolen items should be a key factor when considering how useful any security system is.
Any security which makes catching a thief more likely also vastly increases the chances that your property can be recovered intact.
Protect your home even when you’re not there
Modern alarm systems often allow homeowners to monitor their homes remotely, so you can keep an eye on your property when you’re at work or on holiday.
This means, if a crime does occur, you can report it straight away – again, increasing the likelihood that the perpetrators are caught.
Lower your insurance premium
Installing a home alarm system is also a great way to lower your annual insurance premium considerably because insurers will consider your home lower risk.
In this way, home alarm systems are actually financially very cost-effective.
Invest in peace of mind
In the event of a burglary or a home invasion, it’s not hard to imagine the thoughts that must run through people’s minds, with most of them likely beginning with “if only…”
