How Much Does a Security System Cost?
They say you can’t put a price on peace of mind… However, in some ways, you can. A comprehensive security system will offer complete peace of mind for your home or commercial property. But as with any investment, you’ll want to weigh up the costs.
In this post, we’ll take a closer look at how much security systems cost, and which factors affect the price.
What kind of security do you want?
The first factor which contributes to the cost of your security system is which features you want. The most basic systems will comprise solely of intruder alarms, which can be very effective in deterring burglars. However, for a more comprehensive approach, you may also want surveillance cameras and even security gates on your property.
On top of this, there are the extra features which make your security system more convenient or even more effective. More advanced systems can be accessed and monitored from your phone for instance, while others will use smart technology such as automating lights. Then there’s the choice between wired or wireless.
Needless to say, these added extras will come at a cost, increasing the overall price of your installation.
How big is your property?
Bigger properties typically cost more to buy, more to furnish and more in energy bills. The same is true for security systems. Larger properties usually have more points of entry which need to be covered by your intruder alarms. They might also require more surveillance cameras to cover every area of the site, or larger security gates to prevent intruders getting onto the site.
Commercial vs domestic
In a similar sense, security system costs may vary depending on whether your property is commercial or domestic. As well as typically being bigger, commercial properties require certain security features like access control, which isn’t usually installed on homes.
As well as the upfront costs for equipment and installation, it’s worth considering the ongoing costs for your security system. Security companies may offer to monitor your property around the clock for added peace of mind, which will typically cost around $15-30 a month.
There are also maintenance costs if anything needs checking or repairing. While some companies will provide this as part of their service, others might charge extra for additional visits, so it’s well worth checking beforehand.
