If you are looking to make a little bit of extra money, or are looking for a completely new career, you may look to sell security systems. Crime is on the rise and more people than ever are looking to secure their homes. This means that this is a great field to get into as you have a product that people want to buy. If you are interested in selling security systems, here are some tips to help you sell them.

Emphasize the Benefits

There are many benefits to a home security system. Some homeowners know these benefits, while some don’t. This is why you should explain them to a potential customer. Some of the benefits include:

  • A cheaper home insurance premium
  • Peace of mind that your home is secured when you are away
  • The ability to monitor your home when you are not there
  • Fire and carbon monoxide monitoring

According to the FBI, Home Break-In (Burglary) is the most common threat to our home. In the U.S. a home burglary occurs every 13 seconds.

Explain How Technology Has Changed the Game

If you are looking to sell a home security system, another technique you can use to help your systems sell is to let customers know how technology has changed the game. Technology has revolutionized the home security world. Before, home security systems used to primarily consist of motion detectors and alarms that would sound if motion was detected in the home. These days, the systems have become more advanced. Cameras can be used to see if someone is actually in your home and who that person is. There are also many other features that can be incorporated into the security system to further protect your home, such as the ability to turn your lights on with the push of a button if you are away or the ability to lock or unlock your doors. 


Reinforce the Cost

The last tip that you should follow if you want to sell security systems is to reinforce the cost to customers. Monitored home security systems do not cost all that much money. People think that they are expensive and are weary of spending their money on something they may not need. However, this is not the case. Most people spend more on coffee in just a couple of days than they would to have a monitored security system installed in their home. When you put it to them in terms like this, they start to realize that they can afford a home security system without it drastically affecting their budget. Also, many home insurers will give a discount to those with active home security features, further making the cost of these types of systems affordable.
