A home security system provides a solid line of defense that keeps the “bad” guys on the other side of the door. It is one layer of defense that is supported by landscaping, lighting, and awareness. For its part, the home security system serves the four following purposes that are all aimed at protecting your Midland TX property, your possessions, and your family. Each of these protective features are well worth their weight in gold.

  1. Deterrence

Burglars want an easy score that they can walk away from with a bag of loot under their arm. Home security systems significantly limit their ability to do that. In fact, studies have shown that burglars are 3 to 4 times more likely to target Midland TX homes without home security systems. The reason? Because a home security system significantly reduces the response time of law enforcement which significantly increases the possibility the burglar will get a long vacation in a state operated hotel for thieves courtesy of the courts.

  1. Loss Prevention

You work hard for your possessions and there is no reason that you should have to work hard to protect them. The average amount taken in a burglary is just over $2,000. Of course, that is just the average and many homeowners experience considerable losses when their home is broken into. A home security system helps ensure that your stereo, television, jewelry, artwork, and other valuables stay right where you want them. More importantly, it keeps your keepsakes that can’t be replaced safe and secure. A home security system limits the amount of time a thief can access the home, and thus considerably reduces the possibility they will even make the effort. A home security system also pays off in the form of reduced homeowners insurance premiums. The savings add up quickly and it is quite common for homeowners to recoup the cost of installation and maintenance of a home security system in a little over one year.

  1. Personal Protection

Whether it is a burglar or an armed intruder, the best line of defense is a solid offense. Home security systems give homeowners the offensive advantage when it comes to preventing confrontations. Motion sensors, cameras, and panic buttons let you know precisely where and when someone tries to gain access to the home. Should someone attempt entry, you can shield yourself and your family from harm while directing Midland TX law enforcement directly at the threat. If someone attempts entry when you aren’t around, you can keep clear until law enforcement has neutralized the threat and taken the intruder into custody.

  1. Coverage Against a Wide Range of Threats

Home security systems offer more than just protection against thieves and armed intruders. They also provide protection against carbon monoxide leaks, radon, fire, and other threats. When these dangerous events spring up, your home security system sounds the alarm which allows you to evacuate the structure quickly and safely. Whether you are at work, away on vacation, or sleeping soundly in your bed, this protection is constant and never wavers so long as the system is properly serviced and maintained.
