Why you should consider getting a home security system
According to data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, over 350,000 homes experienced break-ins or attempted break-ins between 2020-21. While most of us take it for granted that we’ll be safe from harm in our own homes, unfortunately break-ins happen. Concerningly, about 10% of these resulted in a conflict with the homeowner. The good news is there are a number of steps you can take to ensure the safety of your home, possessions and loved ones.
What are some benefits of having household security?
The main benefit of having a home security system in place is that you’ll feel safer. This is because home security systems can:
- Deter criminals from attempting to break in your home
- Allow you to have peace of mind while you’re away
- Send alerts to your mobile if sensors get triggered
- Allow you to monitor your home 24/7, whether you’re at work or on holiday
- Alert security professionals who will take immediate action to ensure your home is protected.
How to save with home security systems
Another great benefit is having home security can save homeowners up to 20% on their household insurance premiums. By having home security systems in place, you’re lowering your risk of a break-in, which in turn means you’re less likely to make a claim. It’s a win-win!
What kind of home security options are available?
From alarm systems to intercom systems, camera surveillance and more, there are a number of different security options available to suit your specific needs. Intercom systems, for example, allow you to see who’s at the door before you let them in. You can also let people in without having to go to the door yourself if you have remote access set up.
Another benefit of intercom systems is the ability to monitor certain rooms in your house. If you’ve got young children this can give you a little more peace of mind, without having to feel like you’re hovering over them constantly!
