First, your most precious possession, your family. Burglars who break in while you or your family are at home, looking for valuable assets are likely to assault someone or even kill someone, in an effort to get those valuables or just because they want to. The Spokane news commonly reports home invasions and recently reported that a woman was actually killed during a home invasion. According to ADT of Spokane, merely having a home security system installed has been proven to discourage these types of robberies.
Secondly, although not as common as home invasion, there are many people who might break into a home specifically to hurt or kidnap someone, such as a child. It is a fact of life that there are criminals who may see you or your loved ones as an enemy, or an opportunity. A system from a company like Total Security Inc., or Spokane Home Security will deter such criminals and give you peace of mind knowing your family sleeps safely.
Third, your valuables. A safe is not enough to protect your assets and important papers. A home invasion could result in you or your spouse being forced to give up combinations or actually open the safe while the criminal threatens your family with harm. Phone lines are unreliable because they are so easily disabled and your chances of using a cell phone during such an invasion are slim. Even if you’re not home at the time, the damage to your property, the loss of valuables and destruction of important papers can be financially devestating as well as emotionally traumatizing for everyone.
The fourth most important reason to install a home security system is to protect your investment and add value to your home. Home owners spend a lot of time and money upgrading their homes and a home security system is one of the most affordable upgrades available. Home buyers may be first time home owners who are impressed with the security of your home, or property owners purchasing rental property. Spokane real estate brokers encourage the installation of a security system that will make it easier to sell your home and perhaps ensure a more profitable transaction as well.
Lastly, you can save money on your home owners insurance policy when your home is secure from invasion. This is expecially true for homes that are in high risk areas or have been burglarized before. Security systems alert police, fire department and other first responders. Allied Fire & Security can be especially helpful when trying to secure a lower rate.
These days it’s important to protect your family as well as your assets and a will not only improve the value of your property but will also reduce the need for repairs or replacing valuables, as well as lowering the cost of insurance.
