When considering installing a home security system, many consumers are primarily interested in the peace of mind, the added security will provide. However, with today’s smart security systems, there are a number of different ways the system can benefit a homeowner, including some financial incentives.
Here are a few ways a home security system can provide you with added convenience and save you money in the process:
– Protection. The average loss from a burglary in the United States is around $2,800. That’s for each burglary. A home without a security system is three times more likely to be a target for theft. In addition to being protected from theft or vandalism, a security system can also provide homeowners with a feeling of safety that allows them to sleep better at night, knowing that a sentinel is on watch 24/7. Being able to sleep better and more sound at night usually equates to better productivity the next day.
– Utilities. Smart security systems provide you with the convenience of being able to perform a number of different tasks from your smartphone or tablet. In addition to being able to arm the security system and lock and unlock your front door remotely, you can also turn lights on and off and change the settings on your thermostat. Being able to turn off the lights and adjust your thermostat to an economy mode when you leave for the day is a great way to save on your electric and natural gas bills.
