We know that your family’s safety is your number one priority. However, installing a home security system can be one of those chores that easily gets put on the back burner. This is especially true if you have never actually experienced a break in or other security breach in your home. Even if it has not happened to you, burglaries do happen about every five seconds in America. This is an astounding and frightening statistic. There are lots of options when it comes to home security systems. Here is what you need to know.


Procrastination can be Costly

If you are hesitating to install a home security system because of the cost, you should consider the real cost of a home invasion. It is estimated that homeowners who have suffered break in lost a total of $3.9 billion in material possessions. This is not even considering what can be lost in emotional peace of mind or even physical well being should an invasion turn into a physical attack. If you are considering a home security system today is the day to act. According to the Bureau of Justice a burglary is defined as:

Burglary is defined as unlawful or forcible entry or attempted entry of a residence. This crime usually, but not always, involves theft. The illegal entry may be by force, such as breaking a window or slashing a screen, or may be without force by entering through an unlocked door or an open window. As long as the person entering has no legal right to be present in the structure a burglary has occurred.

Lots of Options to Choose From

Today there are plenty of home security options to choose from. Systems can range from the very basic door cams like Nest Cam or Video Doorbell to the very extravagant all points entry monitoring service. Simple door cam services monitor your entry ways and allow you to see what’s going on in real time from your smart device. Nest Cam even gives you the option to voice threaten anyone who should not be hanging around your doors. These types of products do increase the safety of your home but are limited in how much monitoring they provide. They are also limited in providing assistance should a real threat against you or your family take place. More extensive services such as Arlo, provide monitoring of all entry points, video surveillance, plus notification of authorities in the event of an emergency.
