Ways Home Security Systems Save Money Lexington, Kentucky

Every year burglaries are becoming more common, luckily so are home security systems, but beware not all security systems are created equally. In many cases, you get what you pay for, but in the security market this rule-of-thumb doesn't always apply. Some companies make offers that seem to good to be true and in many cases they are, sticking you with a never-ending contract and outrages hidden fees. When shopping for a security system it's important to know what you are paying for and equally important to know what a security system can do for you. Home security systems protect your family and possessions, increase the value of your home and can even save you some cash!

1. Prevent stolen or Damaged Property

  • One of the main ways a home security system saves money is by preventing property loss. Resent studies show, the average home burglary costs a homeowner over $2,000, and homes without a security system are three times more likely to be broken into.
  • In addition to minimizing your risk of theft, a home security system can also protect your home from environmental hazards. A Security Essentials & Home Entertainment alarm system can monitor the temperature inside your home and alert you if the temperature becomes critically low. This will alert you if there is a chance that your pipes may freeze and potentially burst. In the case that you have flooding in your home, plumbing or weather related, our alarm system will detect the flooding, and notify you that a threat exist before major damages occur.

2. Reduce energy bills

When you think about choosing a home security system, you can save money on your utility and energy bill if you choose a system with automated options. A SE automated home system offers programmable lighting and temperature control features that can significantly reduce your energy costs. From your smart phone or tablet you can turn off lights accidentally left on while you are away or turn on exterior lights when you are gone longer than expected. In addition, you can also program your thermostat to adjust the temperature in your home to compliment your schedule 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

3. Insurance discounts

Installing a home alarm system can also reduce your insurance premiums. Insurance companies reward those that upgrade to increase their homes security. For example you can qualify for a discount if you install quality deadbolt and window locks, motion sensor exterior lightning and security systems that not only deter burglars but also protect your home from fire, flooding, carbon monoxide and other dangers that may cause expensive damage. Homeowners connected to a SE monitored alarm system may pay up to 20% less for their homeowners insurance. Along with saving money, our home alarm system increases the resale value of your home and attracts potential buyers. It's easy to see how installing a home security system can potentially pay for itself over time but in addition to the savings you will have peace of mind knowing that your family will also be protected!
