Have you been thinking about installing a home security system in your South Florida home but worry that you can’t afford one? Well, if you’re nervous about becoming a victim of a robbery like so many homeowners today, then you really cannot afford to be without one. Approximately two million burglaries are reported in the United States each year and most of them are break-ins. Statistics show that homes without alarmed security systems are three times as likely to be broken into and burglarized.
I live in a gated community, isn’t that all the protection I need?
In South Florida, the multitude of gated communities lulls us into a false sense of security. So, we often overlook the fact that we still need a home security system. The gates keep us safe and sound—right? Not always. If a thief wants to get in, he will find ways to enter whether he follows someone in close behind or finds an unsecured entrance point and just walks in. Most gated residential communities and apartment complexes have one or two unsecured entry points either by the mailbox kiosk or through the woods or road. Some fenced gates can also be easily scaled. If a burglar wants to get in, he or she will try to find a way—but don’t make it easy for them! At Cinema Sound Unlimited, we offer the latest state-of-the-art home security systems and cameras to give you and your family peace of mind.
I have cameras and locks isn’t that all I need?
While surveillance cameras are great for helping to catch the culprit, later on, they won’t protect you from a robber breaking into your home and stealing your valuables while you are not at home. And while deadbolts and securely locked windows will help to keep your home safe, windows can be broken and locks picked. A home security system offers that extra bit of protection that we all need today. Statistics show that an alarm that is blaring will deter a burglar from making your home his next mark.
What are some other reasons why a home security system will benefit you?
- Reduction on home insurance – When your insurance company sees that you have a home alarm system in place and that your home is monitored 24/7, they know you are less likely to be burglarized and that means big savings for you!
- Home Monitoring 24/7- It’s a great feeling to know that your home alarm is monitored by a company whose job it is to make sure you and your family are kept safe and informed of any intruders right away. Most alarm companies will call you if the alarm has been sounded and ask for your password. If your phone goes unanswered, the police will be dispatched to your home immediately.
- Monitors your home with a smartphone app – The ability to keep an eye on your home even when you are away is a big added plus to having a home alarm system in 2020. Technological advances have made it possible for us to set our alarms from our phones, allowing us to access our home security systems remotely from wherever we are and whenever we want.
- Increases home value – When it comes time to sell your home, having a home alarm system already installed in your home increases its resale value. As an added bonus, an alarm system also keeps your home protected throughout the selling process when a number of potential home buyers (who you do not know) will be checking out the inside of your home.
