Not everyone thinks that it’s worth the expense of fitting an alarm system into their home but if you’ve ever returned home to find that it has been burgled and experienced that feeling of utter despair and devastation, then you’ll know how traumatic it can be. Even if very little of value is taken, it’s the thought of a stranger having rifled through your possessions that will stay with you for a long time. So let’s take a look at the 5 top reasons to have an alarm installed:
Safeguard your valuables
If your home is filled with original artworks and treasured antiques then to avoid seeing them posted on auction sites, you need to have an effective alarm system in place. Most opportunists will avoid any house that clearly is alarmed since it’s just not worth the hassle.
Protect your family
If you’ve ever been burgled then you’ll know how scared you feel each time you put your key in the lock. A home isn’t all that homely if you feel anxious all the time that you’re within its four walls. If you have an alarm system fitted then you and your family can feel safe knowing that you’re protected from intruders whilst you’re tucked up in bed at night. If you go as far as to choose an alarm that is monitored then you’ll also have the reassurance of knowing that the police will be quickly on the scene should any unwelcome visitors gain entry.
Secure an empty property
It’s difficult to keep a property safe if for any reason you don’t live there full time. An alarm system is a great means of securing an empty property since most vandals and thieves will probably think twice before attempting to break in.
Having a home alarm system should reward you with cheaper insurance premiums although it’s always a good idea to shop around before renewing your policy.
Those homeowners who think that it isn’t worth alarming their house fail to remember that they can’t physically keep a 24 hour watch over their property. When you leave for work or simply pop to the store, anything could happen in the next couple of minutes particularly if someone has been watching the place. A home alarm system keeps watch 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
