Home Security

Protect What Matters…

Today, home security is more important than ever. It is a fact that, 8 to 12 minutes is all a thief needs to break into a home. And, studies have shown homes without security systems are three times more likely to be burglarized. In fact, when compared to an unprotected home, a home with a security system is 90% less likely to be targeted by a burglar.  

Burglars are opportunistic by nature, and are on the hunt for easy targets. So, homes that lack outdoor lighting, security cameras, and a visible home security sign are easy targets. But, with the right security system in place, you can protect your home and family from intruders. Additionally, you can also protect them from fires hazards and carbon monoxide poising. Give your family the peace of mind they deserve.

With this in mind, we offer some insight on the best home security system.

Home Security System

A home security system is a method by which something is secured through a system of interworking components and devices. All home security systems work on the same basic principal of securing entry points, such as doors, windows, and protecting valuables. Home security systems generally include, a control panel, door and window sensors, indoor and outdoor motion sensors, cameras, an alarm, and a yard sign. At the most basic level, a home security system is designed to perform certain tasks when a secured zone is breached.

Monitoring is at the heart of every home security system. It keeps you safe in case of an emergency and ensures that your home is always protected. But not all monitoring connections are created equal. There are three types of security monitoring methods that one should consider: landline, broadband, and cellular. Both landline and broadband connections are susceptible to tampering, and less reliable when compared to a cellular connection.
