Importance of home security system

Home security, when done correctly, gives you a full peace of mind, especially when you're not at home and of course, at night.

Almost everyone has valuables that need protection. Burglars know that. Sure Lock & Key will help you to understand why home security is important and we will show you how to protect your home.

Why install to security system

Many people keep valuables at home, however, most people do not have a safe. Unfortunately, those who have lost jewelry, cash, or other valuables due to burglary wish they would have had a safe before rather than after being burglarized. There are 2.5 million burglaries annually in the United States, with half of these being home invasions. Research shows that the number of robberies decreases with the increasing number of home security systems, which is an obvious, logical deduction.

Benefits of home security system

Burglaries usually occur when people are at work or school. A home security system will protect your property from burglars and give you a sense of calm, 24/7. The need to feel secure is probably especially necessary on those occasions when you leave your place of residence for an extended period of time, like when you go on vacation. This all applies not only for homeowners but for renters as well. There are many benefits of a home security systema , including

Property protection

Energy savings

Deterrent to burglars

Lowers insurance

Remotely controlled system

The home security system is not just protection against burglars. In addition to security, alarm systems today also have the function of controlling other aspects of your home. To do this, the system is equipped with sensors and devices. These sensors monitor the temperature and other threats such as smoke, fire, and water damage. You can self-monitor or pay for professional monitoring, and you will know that your home is always safe and that's a great feeling.

Types of residential security systems

Alarms are divided into two groups, active and passive. Active alarms are equipped with sirens and flashers to scare the burglars and make them leave. Passive alarms have a different principle of work. If the sensors detect intrusion, the system sends the warning to specific people. As well as giving notice to the authorities to send someone to your place of residence.

Local alarm systems

Local alarm systems are the most basic type of alarm systems. They include sensors that you install on your doors and windows but aren't connected to a control panel.

Smart security systems

Smart security systems are connected to the Internet, allowing users to control everything from a mobile app.

Wireless alarm systems

Wireless alarm systems are a modern solution in the security area. The system works without wiring, fits into the interior, and will take little time to install. These systems are also easy to take with you when you move. However, here are some drawbacks. The sensors need batteries to work, so there is a chance that the battery may run down without giving notice to the homeowner.

Wired alarm systems

Wired alarm systems are still widely used. This system includes a control panel, wired sensors, and motion detectors. It is highly reliable, but it takes a lot of time to install it and is unsuitable for renovated rooms. It can damage the interior due to the need to lay wires to each sensor. In case the cable is damaged, the system stops working.
