Home security systems are not just a purchase, but an investment. With any investment, you think about its value for money and the return it could give you. But how do you measure the worth of the peace of mind and security that back to base alarm monitoring gives you?
What Back to Base Alarm Monitoring Does
Having your alarm system monitored by an A1 Grade Monitoring centre such as ART Security provides you with an invaluable service that complements the local activation of your alarm system.
If you do have an alarm event our trained, professional operators will notify you on the contact details you have provided. If you are not available they will attempt to contact all the people you have listed on your after-hours contact list. If you are able to confirm intruder’s onsite, either via CCTV footage or physical attendance, they can arrange police and/or patrol attendance.
Back to base monitored security systems can also lower your insurance premiums.
The Cost of Security
The thing to remember with your home security system is that most of the costs made are one-off. These fees would be regarding purchase of the system, installation and operation of your alarm monitoring.
From there, there would be quarterly costs associated, but the cost these vary dependant on the system selected as best for your home.
Is It Worth It?
The most appropriate way to determine the value of an alarm monitoring system is by evaluating what is important for you to keep secure, and whether it fulfils this. One of the major factors of alarm systems is that they not only deter burglars, but also, in the case of a break in, can heighten your chance of catching the criminal. If your fear lies in intrusion, then security systems can easily make a difference and help you feel more secure and at ease in your home.
