Home Security


Choose Your Home Security Companies Carefully 
Home security is needed whether it is an alarm system or monitoring from home security companies. According to the FBI, in 2007, approximately 2,179,140 burglaries occurred in the U.S. Of these, 67.9% were burglaries of residences. Approximately 900,000 homes were forcibly entered, 479,000 without force, and 96,000 were attempted forcible entries. The average amount lost in each burglary was $1991.00.

Before deciding to choose a home security company, there are things you need to realize. Many home security companies will install a security system in your home but their goal is to sell you a contract for monitoring that system. These contracts are 36-60 months in length and cost $19.99 to $39.99 a month on average. Some companies give the home security alarm system for free in exchange for a long term monitoring contract. The home security companies then monitor the system and respond to any alarms quickly, by contacting you or by notifying the police or fire departments.

To choose the right company do some research on your own. First look for recommendations from other homeowners, friends and neighbors. Then personally interview some of the companies in your area. Ask for a brochure of the various plans they offer including: what alarm system they use, how much of the home is protected (one door or two, windows, etc…), and what does the monitoring cover. You should interview 3-5 home security companies before deciding.

Get a free home estimate, if available. There can be many hidden costs involved or charges for additional services not discussed. Then ask any questions you may have of the managers of the home security companies. Ask about the installation personnel who will install your system. Are they subcontracted or fulltime? How are they trained? What is their background? What is their job experience? Ask to see proof of the installer’s qualifications.

If the home security companies have security personnel ask if these use weapons. Are they trained in firearms? What is their background? Don’t be afraid to ask the tough questions your family’s safety is at stake.


Finally, when you are deciding between home security companies don’t base your decision on cost. You get what you pay for so don’t choose the cheapest, or for that matter, the most expensive. Choose the most qualified. If you did your homework then you should know who meets your needs best.
