Benefits of a Home Security Alarm

Posted on May 19th, 2016 by Alert Protective


You may be asking yourself, what are the benefits of a home security alarm? Why should I bother buying and installing a security alarm in my home? Nothing has happened to me yet, so who’s to say something will happen in the future? If you haven’t been the victim of crime, consider yourself very lucky. Over 300,000 occur in Chicago each year. Sure, nothing has happened yet, but who’s to say something won’t happen in the future? Below are the benefits of having a home security alarm.

Peace of Mind

Give yourself the peace of mind that comes with a home security alarm. Know that your home is protected both while you are there and while you are away. If you are home, rest assured knowing that should anyone try to break in, the alarm will be tripped and you will get a call to ensure your safety. If you aren’t home, you can monitor your home from anywhere with an internet connection. You can even get text messages and email alerts. No matter where you are or what you are doing, your home will be safe.


There are operators monitoring home security alarms around the clock, so you know that no matter what time of the day or night, you and your home are safe. Alert Protective in particular has two fully-staffed backup centers.


Home security systems may cost you some money in the short term, but they are far less expensive than the loss you could suffer from a burglary. On average, a residence loses over $1,000 in a single robbery. Quality alarm systems require a one-time setup fee along with minimal monitoring fees (as low as a dollar a day). Would you rather spend a dollar a day or a thousand?


The most obvious and most important aspect of a home security alarm is the safety it provides for you, your home, and your family. Criminals are fifteen times less likely to approach homes that have evidence of home security systems. That means that your house is fifteen times safer than your neighbors without home security alarms. The money you will save is definitely a great feature, but the safety you’ll provide for your loved ones—that is something that you cannot put a price on. That is the reason to get a home security alarm.
