Why Should You Have a Home Security System for your Home?

Updated on June 18, 2016

Having a home security system is not just something to think about for many homeowners. It is a necessity. But for some, it is a home feature that is not considered until our neighbor’s, or perhaps our own home, is broken into. It is then that having a reliable home security system suddenly becomes necessary and vital.

But why should one wait to have an alarm system installed? After all, we never know when there might be an emergency that could have been prevented by having a monitoring system in place. Some of these instances include a medical emergency, fire, flood, or even carbon monoxide monitoring.

Think about, a home monitoring system is connected to your local emergency service providers. In the event of flood, fires or carbon monoxide, a security system will not just make enough racket to get your attention, but it will also notify the local EMS bases and help can be there sooner, rather than later. In the event that you or a loved one fall or have any other medical emergency –heart attack, stroke, etc. many systems are equipped with features that can be activated to send help. For systems designed to identify flooding, you have a stronger chance of minimizing damage, if you can take action sooner rather than later.

But these are just a few of the reasons that having a home monitoring system is important. Here are few other reasons to consider taking action to protect your home and family:

  • An overwhelming majority of convicted burglars say that they intentionally avoided homes with security systems. If an alarm sounded, they admitted to fleeing the home immediately.
  • It isn’t uncommon for a burglar to invade a home more than once. After all, they already know the layout of the house and have discovered where the “goodies” are kept. If you’re the victim of a break-in, get a home security ASAP to deter the bad guys from returning.
  • On average, only about 13% of burglaries are cleared by police, and recovering victim’s property is even less likely to happen.
  • According to the FBI, the average dollar loss per burglary in the U.S. is $2,185. That amount doesn’t include the emotional damage a break-in inflicts on your family.
  • 34% of intruders enter through the front door, while 22% enter through a back door; 12% of burglars enter through an unlocked entrance.

Protecting what matters to you with a security system is a great way to ensure a happier future. Talk to a local home security system provider, such as Moyers, or even to your local EMS providers today to learn what type of system will best work for your home and needs.
