Why You Need a Home Security System

March 14, 2013

If you are in the market for a new home security system, you have many choices. The two main types of home security systems on the market today are hardwired alarm systems and wireless alarm systems. When installed correctly, both types of security systems do an excellent job at protecting homes and keeping them safe. Depending on your budget and security needs, you will find that there are many options for you when it comes to your homes security. Let’s face it, times are tough, and burglars are out in full force. Having a home security system installed is a must these days, no matter where you live.
 
Many people choose not to get a home security system installed because they feel they live in a good neighborhood and the chances of their home being burglarized are slim. Unfortunately, most of these people will become a victim of a burglary because they thought this way. The truth is; if you are away from your home for any amount of time, you need a security system to protect your home and valuables while you are away. You do not want the feeling of coming home to a house that has been burglarized and ransacked by heartless thieves who were simply out for a quick buck, leaving you and your family feeling violated in the process. It use to be that burglars mainly targeted homes when people were away at school, work, or on vacation. Nowadays, burglars have gotten more brazen and are attacking at all hours of the day or night, whether homeowners are home or away. This is a sad and scary thought for anyone, but it’s the reality of the world we live in today.
 
Having a home security system installed in your home, is not only a smart thing to do—it is the right thing to do. A home security system will not only protect your home from intruders, it can help save your family’s life. When you are away from your home, burglars will think twice about entering it knowing you have a home security system in place. They will also have fear of entering your home while you are sleeping because of your home security system. If you have latchkey kids that are home alone after school for any amount of time, a home security system can also help keep them protected and safe until you arrive home.
 
When having a home security system installed, go over your security concerns with your 2 Krew representative. Inquire about panic buttons and ambush/duress codes. These may be considered added features, but they can be real lifesavers if they ever need to be used. Once a panic button is pressed on a monitored alarm system, police are notified immediately. Ambush and duress codes are codes that you would enter into your keypad that would alert your monitoring center that you are under duress. They would then notify the police immediately, and help would be on the way. While you may think these features will never be needed, it is important to know that many families have used them effectively in emergencies.

In the times we are in, home security is on the minds of everyone. The security of your family and your home is important to you. Protect them and help keep them safe, by having a home security system installed in your home today.
