Home security systems are important regarding safety, protection, energy savings, insurance savings, and peace of mind. Frankton Telecommunications is a professional provider of security systems for home and business throughout York, PA and Hanover, PA.
A lot of our customers often ask us, “What are the main reasons that I should purchase a security system?” Generally, clients come to us because they already have one specific reason in mind. Whether it’s to protect their family’s safety or to protect their office from theft, there are many more reasons that a security system is beneficial for both your home and business. In this article, we will break down the main reasons a security system is important for your home.
H2: Why should I install a home security system?
Safety. We offer several different levels of security systems for the home. From HD video monitoring with night vision to built-in alert system features to 24/7 motion detection recording, the main reason people contact us for a home security system is safety. We offer professional monitoring services so that even if you are unaware of the problem, we can ensure that your family and the valuables inside your home are always safe and secure. If someone enters your home without your permission, the police are immediately notified and are dispatched right away. According to the FBI, there are over 1 million burglaries committed every year in the United States. The cost of a burglary averages about $2,600, but that is nothing when you compare it to the psychological damage of a stranger entering your home without your permission and taking your belongings. Additionally, studies have shown time and time again that if a burglar knows the home has a working security system, they almost always change their minds about breaking in. In fact, homes without a security system are 300% more likely to be burglarized.
Peace of Mind. When you have a security system installed for your home, you can go on vacation without worry that anything bad will happen while you’re on the road. This is also the case for just being out of the house for a long weekend or your entire workday. You know that your house is being monitored by a professional security company, so it’s not even in the back of your mind taking up head space. Plus, when your house has a home security system, you can sleep soundly at night knowing that you are safe in your bed.
Time and Energy Savings. Many of our home security systems have automation capabilities which can offer both convenience and energy savings. We can connect your lights and your thermostat to the security system so that when you’re on the road, you can adjust the settings to save on cost. Additionally, with smart door locks and garage door openers, you have a secure way to let people into your home while you’re gone without having to waste the time or money on purchasing several different keys for everyone.
Home Insurance Savings. Nearly every insurance company offers a home insurance premium discount if you have a security system installed for your home. If you currently have one, check with your insurance company to see what kind of discount you could get. Depending on the system, you can save anywhere from 2% to 10% on your homeowners insurance payment. Plus, if you do have a security system installed, video surveillance can come in handy when you file insurance claims. The home security systems that we install have a bunch of perks already included:
Free mobile viewing (no monthly cost)
24/7 recording and/or motion detection recording
Full HD cameras with night vision
