Is a Home Security System Worth the Money? Absolutely.
Often times people think of a security system as a luxury item, or place it down the list of priorities believing that crime happens elsewhere. The fact is, crime happens everywhere and security systems are tools no person can afford to live without.
Placing Value on Safety
We value many things in our lives and do not think twice about regularly sending money on things like entertainment. Why then do we have to stop to consider whether or not our safety is worth a small investment? For many people, contemplating the possibilities of being a victim of crime or devastating fire is something to be avoided. Certainly NJ residents do not want to believe that their home could burglarized, but the possibility is real and it is often after we become a victim that we see the real value of home security.
Home Security Systems Deter Crime
While no system can guarantee that your home will not be burglarized, studies show that home security systems act as a strong deterrent. According to the FBI, a burglary happens every 13 seconds in the US, and homes protected by some form of home security system are up to 300% less likely to become a target of crime.
Home Security Systems Can Save Money
The average loss to victims of burglary is $2,000. Damage due to fire averages more than $30,000 per incident. Home security systems help reduce the cost of damage and loss by getting help to the scene sooner.
Home insurance companies also appreciate when residents have a home security system installed and often offer significant discounts.
Peace of Mind is Priceless
Adding any level of security to your home is added peace of mind knowing that your family and home is secure. While we cannot totally prevent tragedy from happening, we can do all we can to lessen the probability of its occurrence. Installing a home security system is one way to add extra security and an immeasurable sense of peace of mind.
It’s Completely Affordable
One of the things that surprises most people is that home security systems are so affordable. Today’s technologies make high-tech security options extremely budget friendly. In fact, most home security options can be had for less than most phone and cable bills!
