Each year there are more than two million home burglaries reported in the United States alone. This means that on average, there is a burglary taking place every 13 seconds. Lubbock TX is not immune to these statistics.  Installing a home security system is one of the simplest and most effective ways to protect your loved ones and your belongings. In fact, a wireless home security system may be the single most important thing you can do to keep your family and property safe and secure.  Thanks to wireless technology, Lubbock home security systems have become more affordable, easier to install and more reliable than ever. If you’re still on the fence about purchasing a home alarm system, consider the following benefits that it offers.

Home security systems deter burglars

Homes without security systems are 2.7 times more likely to be targeted by a burglar. In most instances, the presence of the alarm system itself will discourage a criminal from attempting a break in. If a burglar does attempt to break in either knowingly or unknowingly when family members are inside, the family will have ample warning to get out or retreat to a safe hiding place while the system alerts the authorities.

Home security systems protect your entire property

The average loss per burglary in the United States is around $1,700. From expensive diamond jewelry to priceless family photos, every household accumulates items that have a high value to them. When you have a modern home security system with security cameras, you’ll have a visual record of exactly what the burglar took. The footage will also increase the odds of the Lubbock authorities identifying the burglar. If you have a large property over multiple acres and/or with several detached buildings, consider configuring the system to ensure full coverage.

Home security systems alert you to fires and hazardous gas buildup

Household fires may come about as a result of cooking mishaps or sparks or electrical issues from various appliances and components such as cooktops, heating units and water heaters. It only takes thirty seconds for a small flame to explode into a large fire. Once a fire breaks out, the home fills with smoke quickly, making it impossible for family members to breathe. Carbon monoxide is another major risk for homeowners. As carbon monoxide is both odorless and colorless, it can seep from heating systems and stoves without people even realizing it. A home security system can detect these problems and notify Lubbock emergency response personnel in the event of such a condition.

Home security systems offer access to smart home features

Wireless home alarm systems allow you to install video monitoring and receive home activity notifications as well as control a wide range of home systems from any smartphone, tablet, or computer. Just some of the features available include arm and disarm the security system, lock and unlock the doors and turn lights on and off in addition to adjust temperature and humidity levels from any location. These features are especially useful when you’re on vacation or managing a second home in Lubbock TX.

Modern wireless home security systems make it simple to install the basic system and then add on other features (i.e. surveillance cameras, carbon monoxide detectors) later. Take advantage of the components that are most important to you, knowing that you can always purchase other features at a later time.
