4 Myths About Home Security Systems

You work so hard to provide a good life for yourself and your family, investing in a beautiful home within a good neighbourhood. So why don’t homeowners take the extra step to protect their possessions, and more importantly, their families, with a customized home security system?

Sadly, many Calgarians still have doubts about securing their homes with an affordable security system that can easily be customized to suit their particular needs and lifestyle.

To help clear up the confusion, here are 4 home security system myths debunked:

  1. MYTH 1: Using a security system has no effect on my home insurance: Actually, home insurance companies typically offer anywhere between 2%-15% off your policy if you have installed a security system. All they require is a certificate of installation and service from your alarm company.

  2. MYTH 2: With my pets and kids, there will be too many false alarms: False alarms happen, whether your pet finds a way in through a door or your child forgets the alarm code. But alarm companies can work around this, as long as they are aware. REMEMBER: A professional alarm company treats all alarms, false or otherwise, with the same level of urgency for your safety.

  3. MYTH 3: Wireless systems aren’t that reliable. In fact, wireless systems are even better than traditional ones! Wired systems can have their wires cut and wireless systems give you mobile access so you’ll never be without a connection to your home security, even if you’re away on holiday.

  4. MYTH 4: I live in a safe neighbourhood. While your risk of burglary might go down depending on the neighbourhood you live in, remember that no home is risk-free. Criminals are everywhere, and some even travel to nicer areas because they expect a bigger payoff. Assuming your area is safe enough to neglect a security system is a huge risk and it’s one you really shouldn’t take.
