You Need the Best Home Security System – Best Built-In Has One For You

You may think of installing a home security system as an unnecessary expense, but not installing one could cost you even more. Security cameras and alarm systems protect your valuables and your loved ones, and there is no price tag anyone can put on that. When home owners are elderly, or working parents who often leave children alone, home security systems provide a peace of mind.

Home security systems have never been more comprehensive or reliable. Best Built-In can offer you technical help and advice on choosing the best home alarm system to suit your lifestyle and budget. Installing a home security system secures your family and property, it provides you with a peace of mind. For most, the biggest reason we consider installing a home security system is that it offers protection to family members from intruders. While most people associate home security systems with protection from burglaries, these systems can also protect homes from many other emergencies such as fire or even carbon monoxide poisoning.

Why Have a Residential Security System

So many options! Heat detectors can be added to a home security system, enabling a home security system to provide an early warning system for smoke. While many home owners rely upon smoke alarms to warn them of a fire outbreak, home security systems offer an early warning system. Monitored home alarm systems will not only warn home occupants of the presence of smoke in the home, but they will also warn of sources of heat and contact authorities.

Adding surveillance cameras to your residential security system is often the best guarantee that burglars will be deterred. Home Security Cameras installed with many modern alarm systems serve as visual documentation of the home intrusion and helps identify the burglar more effectively.  As technology has improved, home alarm systems now allow users to log on to the internet via their computers or smartphone and access their home security system remotely. Modern wireless alarm systems are now more affordable and much easier to set up and maintain than the wired systems of the past.

Home Security System Installation

Having a home alarm system installed actually increases your home value when it comes to selling your home. As an added bonus, it also keeps your home protected throughout the selling process where a number of strangers will be inside your home.

Mandatory home insurance is designed to cover private homes and the possessions therein from losses or damage that can occur as the result of several devastating events. It covers events such as fires or damage due to break-ins, for instance.  While the cost of homeowners insurance is generally not low, if you have a home security system installed often a significant discount is given.  The total discount given as a result of homes having security systems differs based upon the features of the system but can generally vary between, just for having a functioning home alarm system installed.

Therefore, not only does the home security system save lives and belonging, it can actually also save you money.

Don’t Be A Statistic!

Most research done on burglaries states that the mere presence of an alarm system is enough, in most cases, to protect the home and its occupants from a break-in.  Some of other statistics are as follows:

  • Every 13 seconds a home burglary takes places, 4 burglaries a minute, 240 an hour and nearly 6,000 a day.¹
  • FBI burglary rates of homes state that 1 in 3 homes without a security system will fall victim to a burglary as compared to 1 in 250 homes that do have a security system.²
  • According to “Securing Home and Business” by Simon Hakim/Erwin Blackstone, homes without security systems are 2.7 times more likely to be targeted by a burglar.³
  • About every twenty seconds a home fire is reported.⁴
  • Each year it is estimated that there are some two and a half million burglaries across the United States. These burglaries cost homeowners some $3.1 billion with the average loss per burglary at around $1,700.⁵
