Residential security systems are effective. That is a fact. A study by researchers at UNC North Carolina found that 60% of burglars surveyed said they would be less likely to target a home with a security system. In addition, research at Rutgers University marked declining burglary rates across entire neighborhoods in which a portion of the homes had home security systems installed.
In order to answer the question of whether or not your home security system is effective, however, you have to ask yourself whether or not you feel safe and secure in your home and if you feel comfortable leaving your home unattended. To answer the question it also helps to be familiar with the types of security features available and level of protection you hope to gain from your home’s system. With everything that today’s technology has made available, it can be a bit difficult to decide what you think your system needs and what features you can do without. Some common features of residential alarm systems include:
- CCTV Cameras
- Motion Detection
- Fire & Life Safety
- 24 Hour Monitoring
- Flood and Water Detection
- Medical Alert Monitoring
- Mobile Monitoring and Control
- Video Door Bell
- Guard Response Services
Smart home systems of today allow you to access and control almost everything in your home from the alarm system and door locks to the thermostat and lights. So, depending on the level of control you want, your smart home security system could allow you to set up automated responses to turn lights on when motion is detected or to automatically unlock the doors if the smoke alarm alerts. All of these security gadgets and security capabilities can make it difficult and overwhelming when trying to sort out your home security system on your own.
