With so many options available, ranging from simple alarm sensors to monitored services with remote access, now is a great time to assess your home’s security and find a system that suits your needs.
Of course everyone wants the benefits of a home security system, but if you’re sitting on the fence about the idea of getting one installed we’ve got four reasons you’ll be happy you did.
You’ll have total peace of mind
Ever get that pang of worry leaving your home? The best way to get peace of mind that your home and all your prize possessions are safe is to install a monitored alarm system.
Our alarm systems are all monitored meaning that if you’re alarm goes off and you’re not around, someone will be in touch right away to let you know. For even greater peace of mind you can add police response.
You could save yourself money
Cost is one of the main reasons people choose not to get a security system installed. What they don’t realise is that installing an alarm system could save money elsewhere.
Most home insurance companies take into account what type of home security you have installed when calculating your premium. Meaning you’ll make some great savings if you have a good security system installed, even more so if the system is monitored. ADT alarm systems have the NACOSS Gold Approval which could reduce premiums by as much as 7.5% https://www.moneysupermarket.com/home-insurance/money-saving-tips/. Of course it varies per insurer, but it’s definitely worth looking into.
You can keep an eye on what’s going on at home
Whether it’s making sure your kids got home from school ok, checking the dog isn’t up to any mischief a monitored security system is a great way to get some peace of mind.
All you have to do is get a system installed with security cameras that have remote access. Then you’ll be able to use your smartphone, tablet, or other smart device to see what’s going on when you aren’t home.
You can make your home less of a target
Given the choice, would a burglar choose a house with a monitored alarm system or without? When we interviewed reformed burglars we found that an alarm system was one of their main deterrents, and that they were able to quickly recognise those that are monitored. In fact 93% of them said they wouldn’t target a home with an ADT alarm. You can watch the video
ADT alarms have a bright yellow bell box and flashing blue light, telling any potential thieves in the area that your home is well protected and wouldn’t be worth the trouble.
