Why you should consider getting a home security system

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!

Vaccaro was the original electrical installer of my home. Their workmanship and materials were of excellent quality. They were extremely helpful, efficient and friendly whenever I asked for help. My special regards to Cameron for responding to my after-sales requests promptly and Robert for helping me resolve some technical issues and enhancing my understanding of the wiring system design.

Vaccaro was also the original air-conditioning installer of my home. Sonya and her teams were very polite and attentive and provided speedy responses to servicing requests. The technicians are well trained and equipped and as a result the refrigerant leak was fixed in no time. They also made good the controls and carried out air balancing.


I was a little nervous doing my electrical appointment on my own as my partner was unavailable. Janae (Electrical Design Consultant) was friendly, helpful and had a clear understanding of everything, making the electrical appointment stress-free. Janae was quick with responding to any enquiries or emails. I was very happy with her service & would highly recommend.

Happy to give a big thumbs up and thank you to Richard in the sales team and the guys who replaced our 22 year old full ducted system in our double storey home, with a new Daikin 20kw system. Only installed one day and already appreciate how quiet the unit is. Despite the rain they were through the job in a few hours and were completely professional, very happy to recommend this company.


Thank you, Richard, Jimmy, and the rest of the Vaccaro team, for providing such timely and professional service, installing a split air conditioning system in my home today. Jimmy’s level of awareness to be respectful of the peace and cleanliness of the property during the installation was greatly appreciated. My apartment feels lovely and toasty – I may never leave!
