Do I Really Need a Security System?
Protecting your home, your loved ones and your valuables is the most important thing for most people. Home is where the heart is, after all – and here in Bermuda, we are lucky enough to have a relatively low level of crime.
However, in recent years, the number of reported crimes against people and properties, including burglaries, has significantly increased. So, it’s more important than ever to protect yourself and your property. How can you ensure your valuables and loved ones are safe? Is a simple locked door enough to deter burglars or do you need a security system?
Prevent unwanted visitors
The main appeal for installing a security system is to send potential burglars running. But does it actually work? With 73% of burglars saying they would still attempt a break in if a home had an alarm, would a security system actually protect your home?
Well, in short, yes. Attempted burglaries on homes with a home security alarm system are unsuccessful 60% of the time, so even if a thief makes an attempt to break-in, chances are their efforts will be in vain. Often, installing an intruder alarm can put potential burglars off without even attempting a break-in, preventing loss of property and fear of vulnerability.
Reduce insurance costs
As well as helping to prevent break-ins, installing a security system can help to cut your household insurance costs by up to 20%. FBI studies show that security cameras and alarms can make your home 15 times less likely to be a burglary victim and so insurance companies are more confident that your home is protected.
Even if you’re unfortunate enough to be a burglary victim, a CCTV system can help you to catch the culprit and gives you a much higher chance of retrieving your valuables and being compensated for the crime.
Give your family peace of mind
Not only do burglars steal your valuables, they also rob you and your family of your safety and security. Victims of burglaries can be left feeling vulnerable, afraid and uncomfortable in their own home.
According to Household Tips, the average burglar takes around 57 seconds to gain entry into a home. With a high-quality intruder alarm, you can ensure that you and your family are safe and alert the authorities before the thief even gets through the front door. Or, install a security gate at the edge of your property to delay potential burglars even further, allowing more time to get to safety and call the police.
