Home Security Myth Buster

Here are 6 wrong reasons why people do not have a home security system.

1:Having home security cost a lot of money.

Let us bust this bubble right away. Home security might even be free.

Most insurance companies will give a discount on your homeowners insurance for having a monitored security system

This discount can ad up to around 20%, and there are even companies that offer up to 40%/

Although a monitored system can cost you around $40 a month, the money you save on your insurance might pay for it.

Lately there are companies that offer free installing for their system.

2:You have to pay every month for the monitoring.

Many people do not like the idea of having to pay for their security system every month.

Lately there are many security systems available that you can install yourself.

Find one that will suit your specific situation and install it yourself.

Many of the DIY products can be attached to a phone line and alert you or other pre programmed numbers.

3:I have a dog that will set off the alarm and will cause fall alarms.

With the latest developments in home security systems there are sensors available that can be set at a certain height.

There even are sensors available that can set for subject that way more than the pre set amount of pounds.

Your home security company can advice you on this subject.

4:Why would the break in to my house I have nothing of value.

Most people do not realize how much valuable items they poses.

t.v , DVD-players, game systems. It all adds up.

The recent economical crises make people do desperate things.

There are man items in your house that for example a drug addict, can sell pretty fast for cash.

An average burglary will make you lose between $1000 and $ 5000.

5:Home security systems are hard and expensive to install.

I most of the cases when you go for a reputable company the installation is included in the purchase of the system and the package

If you do not want to pay for monitoring you can still install it your self.

A wireless system is pretty simple to set up and most system comes with detailed instructions,

Just follow them and you will be surprised how easy it can be.

6:When the power goes out my security system want work anymore.

Most security systems come installed with a back up battery.

In case of a power outage the battery will take over and you will still be protected

There are systems available that are 100% battery operated and do not rely on any other power source.

I hope after reading these 6 misunderstandings you have a better understanding of home security and the available systems and that there is no reason not to find the right one for your situation.
