Tips for Home Security Systems

New technologies continue to be adapted by the home security industry and we put together these tips to make sure you choose the best home security option available. In addition, be sure to check out any application available on your smart phone that might be able to tie into your home security system.

  1. Wireless - Never want to see wires again? Many home security systems are completely wireless so they are very discreet and can be enabled with a simple push of a button
  2. Mobile Monitoring & Applications - A number of newer systems allow you to control your locks, lights, and entire power consumption through a mobile application or by logging into your account online. In addition, the internet has now provided consumers with the ability to watch any home security cameras over the internet so you can always keep an eye on your home and family.
  3. Warranties - Always take a look at the manufacturers and installers warranty policy. Many companies provide service 24/7 and will head out to the home to fix the system right away. Manufacturers also provide their own warranty to easily replace any products with potential issues.
  4. Insurance Discounts - Notify your home insurance company about your plans to install a home security system and they could give you an idea of the potential discounts you could receive on your insurance simply by installing a home security system. Many homeowners can receive a 15-20% discount on their monthly insurance premiums!

Before purchasing a home security system you should either do your homework online or sit down with your home security professional to discuss which system makes the most sense for your situation.
