A security system is an investment for your peace of mind. In general, a system is available for any budget. Costs do vary and largely depend on which security features you choose, what you want to protect and the area you live in.
An alarm system is designed to:
- Detect an intrusion
- Activate a warning device upon detection of an intrusion
- Deter crime
- Protect life and property
- Bring an appropriate response to an emergency
- Enhance the apprehension of Criminals
When you’re ready to buy a system you can expect a one-time installation fee. If you choose to lease your system, an installation fee may or may not be included in a monthly service fee. You can also expect a monthly monitoring fee for the professional monitoring of your system by a central station.
Many insurance companies will offer discounts on home insurance for professionally installed systems. Typically, these discounts range from two to 30 percent. Ask you insurance agent for more information.
