Even if you think you live in a very safe and secure neighborhood, having a home security system installed can reduce your risk of break in even more. According to recent reports, a home burglary happens every 13 seconds in the United States - that’s nearly 6,000 different burglaries every single day. But, when you invest in a security system in order to safeguard your home and its valuables, you mitigate the risk of being part of that statistic dramatically.
According to the FBI, 1 in 3 homes that don’t have a security system will be broken into in the United States. But, after you invest in a security system, that shocking statistic gets reduced to just 1 in 250 - a dramatic difference!
But keeping your home and family safe from burglaries is just the beginning.
The latest security systems can also help keep your home and family safe from fires. How? Thanks to security cameras, smoke and signs of fire can be detected - whether you’re in your home asleep or away on vacation. Having someone monitoring your house to catch these signs can help make sure accidental fires never get out of hand. You can even include heat sensors in many types of home security systems, going a step further to safeguard your home and family from the potential dangers and risks of home fires.
Think a fire in your home isn’t that likely? Think again. According to reports, a home fire is reported three times every sixty seconds. If your home has a smart security system, however, you can feel confident that a fire will never get out of hand.
And, finally, the latest home security systems can actually make your home more efficient by providing you with the information you need to accurately monitor your home’s energy use.
Whether you leave your home with a light on or accidentally keep an appliance plugged in, new home security systems give you remote access so that you can quickly turn off anything that is draining electricity (and your bank account). These same systems can also help you better control your heating and cooling systems, allowing you to turn them off when you leave and then back on before you get home, rather than letting them run all day.
