How to Choose a Home Security System

With Bermuda’s crime levels rising in the last few years, it’s more important than ever to make sure your home is safe and secure. Not just for your possessions but for your own peace of mind. But how can you ensure your home and family remain safe?

A home security system is one of the best ways. Crime rates tend to drop in areas where properties have security systems installed simply because thieves don’t want to be caught. Here are a few tips on choosing the best system for you.

The types of security systems

For many people, choosing their first security system can be somewhat overwhelming. It can be difficult to decide which system will make the biggest difference or suit the property best. Here are some systems you can choose from.

  • Intruder alarms
  • CCTV and video surveillance
  • Gate operators
  • Lighting control and automation

Intruder alarms

Intruder alarms can offer the best peace of mind for those who are worried about a burglary or someone entering the property without permission. If an intruder is aware that an alarm is present it may even deter them from trying to enter the property all together.

Wireless alarms are becoming more and more popular. They are just as effective as a hardwired alarm but with the installation time cut in half, in most cases. This could also save you money on the cost of the alarm because the installer won’t have to spend as much time at your property.

CCTV and video surveillance

The last thing an intruder wants is to have their image captured on camera. In short, it makes them more likely to be caught by the authorities. Quite often, intruders will think twice about entering a property if there’s just a sign advising that the property has CCTV.

With the latest technology, you can now use CCTV and video surveillance to watch your property online and protect your family from your cell phone, laptop or tablet.

Gated operators

Living in a gated property is a form of protection in itself. But the more control you have, the better. Automatic gates give you the opportunity to restrict access to your property. You’ll have more control over who gets to come through the gates and who doesn’t, with a wide range of control systems available to choose from depending on your needs.

Lighting Control and Automation

Lighting control is a fantastic way to enhance your security. It’s easier than ever to control lighting from your phone or any other device. So, if you’re away from your property on holiday or a business trip, you can make it look like somebody is in by adjusting the lights during the day.
