4 Benefits of Residential Burglar Alarm Systems

Your possessions and valuables are generally easily replaceable.  However, your peace of mind and the security of your loved ones in your own home are not. Burglar alarm systems can make a difference in your home and your life.

Simply put, when you invest in installing burglar alarm systems for your home, you are investing in a safe and secure life.

Nowadays, burglar alarm systems for residential properties are reliable, advanced, customizable, and can fit any budget. Homeowners can integrate and include as many or as few features as they want - from home security camera systems to motion detector features, and more. However, the most sought after feature of burglar alarm systems is the integration with a 24-hour monitoring alarm system.

This revolutionary feature helps homeowners have peace of mind – especially during the days when they are not home or late nights when everyone is sleeping, or parents can’t be home with their kids.

How Burglar Alarm Systems Work

When a burglar or intruder tries to get inside your house, and you have the alarm system installed, the alarm will automatically detect a breach. It will let out an audible alarm, which alerts anyone within the vicinity and scares away the intruder.

When a security company monitors the alarm, the security representative will reach the emergency contact for your address, assess the situation, and in real emergencies, contact law enforcement or fire department.

Protection for Your Home and Yourself

No matter what your living arrangement is – whether you’re living alone or with other household members – the possibility that a burglar may invade your home while you’re inside is beyond frightening.

With a monitored alarm system, you’re not totally alone. If the alarm system goes off for whatever reason, your security alarm representative is always going to be available to check on you. The representative will also stay on the phone with you until emergency first responders arrive at your place.

Protection for Your Children

As a parent, the safety and security of your children will always be at the forefront of your mind – no matter what age they are. Even if they are old enough to be by themselves at home, there are going to be situations when even older children can’t deal with on their own. One prominent example is a burglary or home invasion.

Because of this, burglar alarm systems that come with a 24-hour monitoring capability can help protect your children – when you can’t be at home with them.

Protection for Your Pets

Our pets are a beloved member of our family. They give you and your family the love, loyalty, and companionship you need. They make our home a happy place, and they do what they can do to protect us.

Burglar alarm systems can protect your pets when they are left home alone.While dogs can help frighten off would-be burglars or intruders, don’t put your pets’ life on the line. There are cases where burglars have tried to hurt the pets living in the homes they’re trying to invade to silence them.

A monitored burglar alarm system can help protect and look after your pets when you’re not home. If there is ever a fire emergency or a break-in and your pets are the only ones in the house, a monitored alarm system can immediately notify your security provider to send the appropriate emergency response team.

Our pets have no away from protecting themselves in these kinds of events or emergencies. They can’t go outside, so they’re going to be trapped inside the house with no way to let themselves out. It’s our responsibility as pet owners to help them in these situations.

Lessen the Premiums in Your Home Insurance

The Federal Reserve Bureau reported that the average insurance premium for homeowners is between $300 and a thousand dollars.

That’s quite costly – especially if you factor in other household items you need to be paying.

With burglar alarm systems, you can get a significant amount deducted from your homeowner’s insurance. Check with your home insurance agent about the insurance discounts you can get.
