When it comes to the safety of your home, its contents and, most importantly, its occupants, you want the best protection you can get. Equipping your dwelling with a state-of-the-art alarm system is always a smart investment.
Why should you have a home alarm system installed? For peace of mind. In addition to protecting your house from intruders — a sign indicating the presence of a security system is by itself a powerful deterrent — you’ll be minimizing the safety threat posed by fire, carbon monoxide leaks and water infiltration. What’s more, having a home security system in place should allow you to save on insurance.
Today’s alarm systems perform a wide range of functions, which can often be expanded according to the type of protection you need. These may include:
- Open window and door detection;
- Motion detection;
- Broken glass detection;
- Gas or water leak detection;
- Health emergency panic button.
Security systems can be either wired or wireless. The latter option is easier to install (no need to drill any holes in your walls), and you can take it with you when you move.
