The Benefits of Having an Intruder/Burglar Alarm System
It is now an unfortunate fact of life that your your home or business could be at risk of burglary/break ins. Even if you live in what may be statistically a low crime area, you probably still worry about leaving your property, especially for long periods of time such as holidays.
Security alarm systems can help to alleviate this worry, as well as providing real protection for the important & personal possessions in your property.
Both London’s Metropolitan Police and a Which? survey of one-time burglars found that you’re far less likely to be burgled if you have a decent alarm system. Indeed, homes without security are five times more likely to be burgled than those with simple security measures in place, according to www.police.uk.
Here are five fantastic reasons to install an Intruder alarm system in your home or place of work.
Leave your property for long periods without worrying
Most people go on holiday to get away from their home or work life. There’s no point ‘leaving’ your mind at home or in the workplace and spending the whole time you are away worrying about what might happen. An intruder alarm system keeps everything covered, deterring thieves even in your absence. That way, you can relax and enjoy your holiday, safe in the knowledge your building and valuables will be exactly as you left them.
The more protected your items, the less likely they are to be stolen. Thieves are looking for the easiest time – they aren’t going to bother with a well-protected home or business premises. Just the sight of burglar alarms can be enough to deter an otherwise interested intruder.
This means that installing an intruder alarm system in your property can lower your insurance premiums. Your saving will depend upon your particular provider, but you could see a significant reduction in the cost of your premiums.
Protect what you love and value
All of us at home have a lot of valuable items inside – both in monetary and sentimental, . These days there are plenty of items that are attractive to theives such as mobile phones, , laptops, tablets, televisions, games consoles, stereos, cinema-systems, jewellery and expensive clothes. On top of this, car thieves often break into people’s homes in order to steal their keys and then take their vehicle, as most of us no longer put our cars in a secure garage.
Businesses often hold valuable stock, specialised equipment, and employee possessions. On top of this, your premises could contain sensitive data such as customer information. A break-in, even if no personal data is taken, may cause concerns among your clients, but may cause a company to close.
Remotely monitor your home
Smart Home Security systems can also include security cameras so that you can check what’s happening in your home. This is very useful if you are worried about what your children might get up to when they are away, or have pets you want to keep tabs on. Some security systems include remote locking, so you can ensure that windows and doors are always locked, as well as the ability to turn lights on and off remotely to deter would be intruders
