Do I Really Need a Home Security Alarm System?

There’s a lot of debate out there over whether or not a home security alarm system can really protect your home. The simple answer: of course it can.  Research overwhelmingly shows that a security system is effective in deterring criminals. We’ve come up with a few reasons you should consider investing in home security from CallTeks.

The Threat Is Real

More than two-million burglaries are reported in the United States every year. When you break those numbers down, the results are truly staggering.

Every 13 minutes: a home is broken into in the U.S.

Every hour: 240 homes are broken into

Every day: 6,000 homes are burglarized or invaded

Fact: Criminals Target Homes with No Home Security Alarm System

Research shows thieves and home invaders are overwhelmingly deterred by the presence of a home security alarm system.  Statistics show that 85-percent of homes that are broken into don’t have a home security system installed.

That means you are far less likely to become the victim of a burglary or home invasion if you have an alarm installed on your home.

The point is really driven home by FBI statistics. According to those numbers, one out of every three homes with no home security alarm system are broken into at some point. On the other hand, only one in every 250 homes with an alarm are broken into, according to Safewise.

Advantages of Having a Home Security Alarm System

The primary advantage of having an alarm system is deterring crime. When burglars know your home is armed with security, they are far more likely to attack a home without a security system in place.

Another prime advantage is choosing a company that provides alarm monitoring. CallTeks can send you a message when your alarm is triggered, and even dispatch authorities on your behalf. We’ll even monitor for smoke and fire damage.
