Is your home, family or business properly protected?  Do you have peace of mind 24/7?  Make it a priority this year to evaluate your security needs and ensure the safety of your family and employees.  Here are some of the reasons why you should resolve to either upgrade your current system or install a new system for the New Year.

Protect your home and business from intruders According to a study of UNC Charlotte, when polling 40 convicted burglary offenders, 83% said they would first try to determine if the property was secured by an alarm system and 60% said they would look for another property to burglarize if the property was alarmed.

Protect your home and business from firesApproximately every twenty seconds a home fire is reported. A home alarm system can provide an early warning system for smoke in the home and the fire will be reported to the fire  department via your monitoring service, cutting down on response time significantly.

Carbon Monoxide monitoringHuman senses cannot detect carbon monoxide in the air. Therefore, people are often blind-sided by carbon monoxide poisoning that can build up over time. Don’t be caught off guard by this silent killer.

Professional monitoring 24/7A monitoring company will immediately alert authorities to your emergency, cut down response time and will alert you as well. Monitoring your alarm system adds another layer of protection to your property.

Save on insurance premiumsMany insurance companies will reduce your premiums up to 20% if you have a monitored  alarm system.

Keep an eye on your property remotely with a smart systemA benefit of home security systems is that they can help your home to be smart. In addition to the interactive services offered, a smart system can include light controls, door locks, thermostats, etc. These can all of which can be put on a schedule to reduce your energy consumption and provide an additional level of security.

Get medical assistance in the event of an emergencyHome security systems can be equipped with emergency  panics or medical alert pendants. With these emergency vehicles can be dispatched directly to the home when they are  activated.
