Burglar alarm systems provide many benefits to homeowners and business owners alike. The most valuable thing that they offer is the protection of your family or employees, reducing the chance that your home or business will be targeted by a burglar. Not only could you lose valuable items, but you could also become a victim of a home invasion, a potentially life-threatening situation. In 2016, crime increased in Calgary by 30-percent—the largest increase in crime in all of Canada. Breaking and entering, for example, increased to 9,168 cases in 2016. This is a frightening statistic and shows that now is the time to invest in a security alarm system for your home.
Preventing Burglary or Home Invasion
Burglar alarms act as a deterrent; studies show that homes without a security system in place are more than 300 times more likely to become a victim of a burglary. In short, burglar alarm systems make you, your family and pets much more safe while also protect your valuables.
Protection Against Fires, Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and Floods
Burglar alarms don’t only protect you against the threat of burglaries and home invasions. Depending on the system, they can also protect you against fires, carbon monoxide and floods.
Investing in a monitoring service that will monitor your home on a 24/7 basis and contact emergencies services on your behalf is invaluable. Sometimes, stress can put us into panic mode and we fail to act quickly enough. We may also be put into a situation where can we cannot access a phone to call 9-11.
This type of service is extremely valuable to seniors living at home who may have mobility issues and are not able to act quickly in the event of an emergency.
Watch Your Home Remotely
Depending upon your alarm system, you can monitor your home while on vacation since smart security alarms connect to WiFi.
