Reasons Why You Should Make Home Security a Priority

Whenever new technology and entertainment systems get released, many of us will choose to upgrade to the latest mobile gadgets or television set before even considering looking at home security. Here are some reasons why you should prioritise getting an effective security solution installed into your home.

Home Security Will Deter Potential Home Intruders

A survey of police detainees in Western Australia found that a functioning alarm system would decrease the chance of a burglar attempting to break into a house by 49.1%. The survey also found that burglars would be 22.8% less inclined to want to break into a home if they notice functioning sensor lights. Merely having a security system visibly installed into your home will greatly lessen the chances of your home being targeted by burglars and unwanted visitors.

An Effective Security Solution Will Defend Your Possessions
Whether your personal treasures include electronic goods, art collections, jewellery or a secret stash of money, having an effective security solution can help you in making sure that your valuables are protected. In Victoria, RACV estimates that the average burglary rate is 1 in 69 homes. As highlighted before, having a security system visible and signage will drastically decrease the chances of a break in. With a CCTV System installed you will also have a visual record of intruders.

Having installed an alarm system ensure that you have it monitored by a Graded Monitoring Centre.  Back to base monitoring gives you peace of mind knowing that your home is safeguarded whenever your alarm system is turned on.  In the event of an alarm activation you will be contacted by the monitoring centre operator and advised of the alarm activation and what further action needs to be taken.  A patrol can be dispatched to undertake an internal check of the premises and the system re-armed.  All findings are then relayed back to you.
