Installing, arming, disarming, paying monthly fees, and dealing with false alarms are all things that are tied to monitored security systems that may cause you to wonder whether home security systems are worth the inherent hassle. This is a good question to ask as you consider how you can best protect your valuables and your loved ones.
There are a lot of elements to think about when it comes to home security systems and that includes how you and your family might benefit from the safety system. Here are a few reasons how that is true.
1. Protects valuables
That, of course, is the benefit that most people think about immediately. We probably all know someone who has lost electronics, jewelry, or other valuable items because of a home invasion. When the item is an irreplaceable family heirloom, the tragedy gets compounded. A Home security installation has an alarm that scares off many would-be burglars and can notify the local authorities if someone does attempt a break-in.

2. Deters crime
As per a survey, the number of home security systems increased in an area, the number of residential robberies decreased in that area, even for people who didn’t have their security system. Having a security system not only protects you but also helps make your neighborhood a safer place for all.
3. Enables distant access to your home
Modern security systems now allow you to remotely monitor what happens when you’re not in your home. Depending on your provider, you can monitor what happens through cameras installed throughout your home, and control your home’s thermostat, door locks, lights, and other devices.
4. Lowers homeowner’s insurance
Yes, you may be paying your security system a monthly fee, but having your home system can lower your homeowner’s insurance. That, in combination with the other benefits, makes an alarm system a pretty good deal.
5. Notify you of a problem with fire or gas
If your smoke or carbon monoxide alarms run off when you’re away from home, you can opt to receive notifications. You can even set it up according to the provider so that authorities are notified of these emergencies instantly.
6. Help keep tabs on kids
This is another great aspect of monitoring services. If you’re at work, you can use your provider’s mobile app to watch what’s happening in your home via cameras, so you’ll know who your teens are inviting over when you’re away if you have automatic door locks, you can even unlock them remotely to let the kids in after school, so they don’t have to worry about carrying a key to the house (and potentially losing it).
7. Improves electricity management
Many security systems offer smart thermostats and outlets. These gadgets allow you to control the thermostat on any web-enabled device if you have forgotten to change your thermostat before leaving on a trip. Likewise, if you think you left your curling iron plugged in, you can turn it off right from any of your devices. This works as a great tool to turn on and off lights while you’re on holiday to help give the home the appearance that somebody is there.
8. Makes room for a calm attitude
Perhaps the greatest benefit of all is the sense of security and peace which you gain with an alarm system. In addition to being safe, feeling safe will help you become more productive, healthier, and more focused.
